Wether it's a hot dog, hamburger , or and egg sandwich you have to get it with everything! Fries with cheese or chili! A local favorite that I cannot believe Guy Fieri has not visited yet.

This place has the best hot dogs ever. Great cheeseburgers, breakfast sandwiches and fries. It's small and always busy. The onions really make everything taste good. The chili on the digs is an old recipe. It's even good on the breakfast sandwiches.

We took our 88 year old father here for dinner and he loved it and the people. We have always enjoyed our visits here as well as the food. Dad wants to go back tomorrow.

This is the best hot dog ever. Don't schedule a business meeting after you eat one. The onions and sauce kick the hot dog up a notch, but everybody will know you just ate one.

For over 50 years I have enjoyed the Hot Weiner or Hanover Hot Dog. Try one with everything the chilli is outstanding. Fries with cheese and a beer are the best additions. Deserts are very good if I don't eat too many dogs. Super service.
