This place has a very limited menu but that's what makes it so good. Just give me some dogs. The owner was so much fun, he involved all the kids. It was definitely worth the stop. Don't miss it!

We stopped here to check out the caboose and stayed for dinner. The owner was a nice and entertaining guy. We enjoyed our hotdogs and the conversation about the origins of his Polish tacos and tamales.

Rail Dog is a family favorite of ours. The food is amazing and prices are fair. Cute kitschy converted caboose. We talk about this place a lot to friends and family. I hope it continues year after year, we've made it part of our family...More

Pretty good little joint off the main road if you are looking for hot dogs or polish sausage. The owner is extremely friendly and social - so socially awkward penguins might want to go elsewhere.
