O'Betty's hot dogs and fries are excellent. The place is small but they served a really good lunch. I could see why they're open late, because these dogs would be good for late night munchies!

Best hot dog drunk or sober. I live for a good hot dog and this place is fantastic. Be aware if you are there late you'll be eating on the sidewalk. But I'm telling you that it's so good you won't care.
