BOGO fish special on sign as we drove by caught my eye. Meal included slaw, fries, and Basa fish. Food was served hot and promptly. Server was pleasant. Small dining area inside but off to the side but must order outside at counter. The place was clean. Simple menu.

After driving by this place many, many times my wife and I stopped here for lunch. She had a plain dog with mustard and ketchup. I opted for a chili dog and a Yuengling draft. Wife had A&W root beer in a mug. Sat inside. All good, the chili had a kick to it👌🍴

I was told the burgers were the best around. Stopped in with my husband today 8/20/16. It was ok but we wouldn't go back. The burgers were good but the rolls were stale. We ordered french fries but never got them. I asked for unsweetened ice tea paid for it then was told "someone" had mixed up the boxes of... More

This place is great for a casual beer. Stopped in during Happy Hour, at 1.50 for a mug how can you not enjoy yourself. The food is also very good and priced well. Have stopped in several times and every time I return I appreciate it more. Enjoy sitting outside and just laughing. No need to dress up, can come... More

On a hot day this is a perfect spot for a cooked-to-order burger with all of the trimmings, hot, salty French fries from the deep fryer and ice-cold root beer that tastes just like the old-fashioned hard candy root beer barrels you enjoyed as a kid. Best of all: the refills are free. Sit inside in the cool air conditioning... More

It is what it is for bar food so expect grease on your food and they only take cash payments! I tried the chili cheese dog and the chili was amazing, but the hotdog was not appealing at all and barely ate any of it! I would probably go back to try something different, but the hotdogs are a no... More

This is a very casual, come with your shorts and flip flops! They have an indoor section with a few tables and it does have A/C. Their burgers are excellent. Cooked the way you want! The onion rings and fries are out of this world too. Have a root beer or a real beer! The people here are friendly and... More

Anyone from the North must remember the Orange " Stewart's Root Beer" stands, where we all took our dates. Well, we have what is very close to those stops here in VENICE. I'm giving 5 stars because of the memories a visit to this old time hotdog stand evokes! I do not want a $7.00 belly buster, but rather the... More
