Hot dog was not-bad. But brisket tasted like a packaged pre-brined Sysco corned beef product ! That is pretty good when heated correctly !

Lots of great toppings to choose from. Honestly the best dog I think I have ever eaten. Got the Jamaican, which is mustard, onion, and Jamican Relish and added chili. So flavorful and fresh. Came with chips and a drink for $8.50! Awesome!

Great dogs and love the lemonade. Love the chicken salad, but without the relish. Kind of pricey, but delish.
