Let's face it....... it's not as great as it used to be.....the meat sauce isn't as good BUT it's still terrific. Great friendly staff, clean but not fancy, great dogs, super sauerkraut and the hard to find WONDERFUL steamed burger. ALWAYS great to walk in...More

Cappy dogs are an area staple. Mustard,onions and sauce is the way to go. They serve Martin Rosal hotdog which are locally made. One of my favorites.
