For a treat that can not be beat, enjoy the special "grilled jumbo dog with cheddar and bacon". Get it the way tge owner, Andy, recommends - mustard, grilled onions and dill pickles. (Oh, yeah, I add saurkraut.) This is what I reward myself with when I have worked too hard! Rejuvenates me every time!

I remember coming here as a little kid and was happy to see that they are still here, so I thought I'd swing back in again and it was everything I remember it being which was great. Will definitely be going back

Great place but it can get busy based on time. Food is great and staff is amazing. Go there a few times and they know you and any order that has been consistent. These guys go the extra mile for you. They're social to the point where they don't hinder their work and the price seems cheap for the quality they provide.

Been for lunch a few times. Very good and the people that work there are pleasant. Would recommend to anyone as a great spot to grab a quick bite.

It's been a long time since I stopped in here and it is all still the same could use some updating but I didn't eat the restaurant I ate the food and it was good!!
