Small but cozy and wonderful atmosphere. The staff and owners are very friendly. The food comes quick and good portions. I love the fries, onion rings, chili dogs and homemade pastries. You can have regular hot dogs or skinless. Excellent everything. Highly recommend.

Hot dogs and onion rings are simply put fantastic. I love their housemade desserts and donuts. They are always busy but worth the wait.

Both my husband and I got the hotdog basket. The fries are homemade and some of the best we've ever had.

From my favorite, the cinnamon home made donuts to shrimp dinners to classic breakfasts, this popular local eatery is always hopping. You order at the counter and either stand around for take out, or sit at one of the few tables and wait. There is a tendency to back things up at the door, that would scare some people away,...

If you want delicious Franco-American desserts and donuts, this is the place to go. You might even want to start with dessert. But don't miss out on their real cheeseburgers (no frozen, pre-formed patties here) and assorted hot dogs, as well as dishes like home-made shepherd's pie.

The hot dogs here are perfectly cooked and delivered fast. The fries are soggy and greasy. The Diet Coke tastes funny. For really good dogs and incomparable fries, try the Dogg House in Augusta instead.

The food was ok, this place has been here a long time. Like everything else prices are going up. I'd stop again if going by and hungry but I would not drive out of my way. Pick up your napkins before you sit down as none are on the tables. Pretty good variety

Great stop for a quick bite or a hot dog. You can get in and out pretty fast. Food is ok. Parking lot is small

Great Local place to eat that won't break your budget. You can get a breakfast or lunch that is delicious and you don't have to work half the morning to pay for it.
