Worth the wait only if you get the hot/spicy chili dogs oh don’t forget the salt the fries need a dash or two

This place is a Tucson staple. It's cheap and fills you up. It's no 5 star but your 1 star greasy spoon and that's part of its charm. Be sure you get hot. It's not really hot just better flavor.

Found this place by driving around. Ultra cheap burgers and hot dogs. The fish sandwich was disappointing. Chili was ok. Certainly a vestige from a bygone era, so the atmosphere is something differnt.

Reminded me of old beach front drive ins from the sixtys back on the east coast. Nothing fancy but good chili dogs at reasonable prices. The whole place is a bit "dated" but the food's good.
