I used to love deerhead hotdogs. They are good with their spicy special sauce, onions, and mustard. I think they are still the same, but my tastes have changed. Good to have for nostalgic reasons.

This restaurant serves a unique hotdog. It is a staple of the Delaware cruising. Ballparks Barack owner on the contrary should serve this type of hotdogs. The sauce taste like a small trip to the 1950s or 60s. Very unique. Try it you will not...More

My title says it all. You pay a ridiculous price for an average hotdog with a catchy name. You will spend 25-30 dollars for a family of 4. FOR HOT DOGS! There is not one thing noteworthy about them.

Not a fancy place, but they do what they do very well, great food at great prices. Can get pretty crowded, since it is a small place though.

The hot dogs are always good and hot and if you get old bay fries, ask him to sprinkle a little on the dog...YUM! Good deal for the price and the combo with fries and soda is nice lunch. The soda bottles are huge...bigger than...More
