Did not disappoint! Service was remarkably fast and the dogs and fries were delicious! There isn't much seating (3 outdoor picnic tables) so be prepared to take home or gobble up in the back of your car in the parking lot.

Dogs, dogs and more dogs. Very popular with two locations nearby (Rockland and Thomaston); visited both- great variety with onions, sauerkraut, chili etc. Picnic tables available and priced right. Generally a short line so something must be right!

Great hotdogs! They are always cooked perfectly. The menu is very limited, but the quality is good and the value is good.
