    The price is a bit high for what you get, but it’s a quality hot dog.

    Amazing! If it's your first time definitely go with the chef's choice of toppings. The étouffée fries are a meal by themselves. The homemade ginger ale is perfect. Place gets a 10/10 in my opinion.

    Cash only, they have an ATM but I'd bring some cash if you can, why waste $2.50 just to get cash? Every dog is amazing and they all run about $7.50 regardless of toppings

    If you forget to tell the person at the register your name, you can just go up to the delivery-people and give them a name (and describe your order). This will make it easier for them and faster.

    Do not get the veggie dog. It is not a true dog. It is a veggie patti that is a sliced four times. It was good but not great. It had me burping for the rest of the day.
