This place has a drive through and has decent hot dogs. The hot dogs are over priced for hot dogs, but food in Venice is over priced! Enjoy

Stopped here for a quick lunch and service was fast and friendly with a smile. Prices are bit high compared to most places I have been that serve hot dogs with items like a Coney or Chicago style dog going for $3.50-$3.75. 2 dogs and a soda plus tax get you into the $9 range - a bit much for...

My favorite is the Chicago Dog, really enjoy the spicy peppers and neon relish. The new jersey ripper was great also. So many choices, all are goid. Maria is wonderful and so are the French fries.

Fantastic! And nothing short of... Not your usual hot dog stand and definitely not ordinary. This place is a gem! So many combinations, so little room in my stomach. Multiple visits are completely necessary. Oh, and smoothies... if you like them, you must try theirs!

Real Vienna Chicago dogs with bright green relish, sport peppers, pickle, mustard, tomato, onion and poppy seed roll. Real Thumann's dogs deep fried into New Jersey rippers. This place has about 30 specialty dogs, done exactly as they would be done where they come from. If you like hot dogs, this place is a must stop. Outdoor picnic table seating... More

I love hotdogs and fries. I particularly like homemade crispy fries and that's exactly what they were. One order is plenty for 2 or 3 people. The hotdogs are hebrew national I believe. Very good. Hubby and Father in law had the beef sandwich and shared chili cheese fries which they said were awesome. I wish I took pictures, but... More

My husband and I decided to come here for a late lunch after seeing the good reviews and we had passed it a few times and it caught our attention. We love small one of a kind places so this seemed great. The building is very small, outside eating only. Order at the window. The lady was very nice! She... More

I would like to thank you for a well put together review, which seems you put alot of time and energy to compose. .. and I want to thank you for actually enjoying our hot dogs, since that is what we specialize in. As a business, we have to contend with many different views and we welcome them all, but... More
