If you like hot dogs, this is the place. Nothing fancy inside, it's all about the dogs. Priced right for the works. Steamed buns are a nice touch. Plenty of hot dog places around, this is the original, and a must stop

We use to live in Bordentown Twp. For many years we went there a lot. Just seeing Russ Ayres fix your hot dog with his rythmic motion was pure entertainment. All he had at that time 50+ years ago was a hot dog cart not...More

Limited parking today. Apparently this place is so popular that there was either a family reunion or a wedding reception there today. Seriously, music, pictures, family dog. Anyway, the place is cool, very nostalgic. But you can't eat cool nostalgia. Regular hot dogs, boiled and...More
