    The pork belly Grilled Cheese is delicious as are the truffle fries. My wife enjoyed the Mex. City. Iced tea is brewed, but fruit flavored. Food was good, but isn't exactly a cheap eat.

    Trendy, loud and pricy, but if you want a gourmet hotdog, this is the place for you.

    The steak is an amazing value. Big, smokey and perfectly cooked. Watching people beside me eat hot dogs, I knew I made the right decision.

    Drinks and desserts were awesome, main dish was ok. Service was good except for our waitress who was impatient, rolled her eyes at our questions, took our plate without asking if we were finished, etc

    Always get the poutine (skip the egg) the rest is up to you. But you should probably get the mussels.

    Wonderful hot dogs. I generally suggest trying the specials. The truffle fries have an excellent truffle flavor, but the actual fries look and taste like frozen, store bought potatoes.

    Sit at the bar to enjoy mtg some friendly lifers + transplants, alike. The vegetarian dog can be ordered either Chicago-style or Nick Lachey's way. The bartender rec'd the former: worth every bite!

    Stacked hotdogs play alongside full-flavored entrees and doughy pretzel-beignets, all balanced off by smart cocktails and a hefty beer menu at Chef Dan Wright's small upscale pub.

    This restaurant is woefully overpriced. You'll be spending 10 dollars for a hot dog, no sides. Tasty, but not worth it.
