We love the junkyard dog, always a favorite of mine! My daughter also likes the Italian one. The curly fries are a favorite as well. Great prices, easy location, quirky fun setting. Easy parking in adjacent lot.

If you like lots of toppings on your dogs this is the place to be. The buns were actually wonderful, fresh baked Italian bread loaves, which I personally found too much, but I'm not a bread person. With me it's all about the meat and...More
