Nice place for a quick lunch [they were super busy but still fast]. Indoor and outdoor seating. Average prices and hot dogs. Nothing wrong with them just not amazing.

This place is a gem. Food is great! I’ve been coming here for years and never had a bad experience. This time we took our young Daughter who loves hot dogs and she loved it. Everyone is friendly and service is quick!
