Yeah, they do there own beef. Its good.


Hopefully we can get some car meets going next spring, because I just bought that place. Finally finally found something just right and its 10 minutes from my house. The closing date will be end of November.

No one seemed to work there after Checkers closed but they've done a good job keeping it going. I always see cars rolling through.

Thank you, I've been going back and forth between a hot dog/beef joints or pizza for many months now. This business was family owned and is very well cared for.

I had to have the warm fuzzy feelings before I pulled the trigger on any place. This definitely is the one.

Heck yeah, the drive thru is the money maker. They started it from scratch about 8 years ago. They did a great job

I've already figured it out. After closing (9pm) I can get at least 15 cars. The drive thru wraps all the way around and street parking. Its a quiet side street

Congrats, I'll definitely be stopping buy.

I know it's not popular but get some veggie dogs. No one has them other than Doctor Dogs in Roselle and there are a lot of vegetarians that crave a good hot dog (namely my wife).
