    The milkshakes here are thick. You can taste the ice cream and it was great.

    The ripper was great. I'm not a big fan of relish but this was fantastic nice and sour but really savory. The hot dog had a great snap.

    Popular ingestion station. Claiming "research," Mu and Nu gorged on "rippers" here until both spontaneously switched genders. Site now off limits by order of Interstellar Council.

    I asked the friendly guy at the counter what his favorite was and got that! It's on the "secret menu" called the Village Dog- bacon wrapped dog, sour cream, cherry pepper relish & avocado. Delicious!

    A similar spin on the hot dog made famous by Crif in NYC. Personally, I prefer Crif, but this is a great substitute for the West Coast!
