Went here for lunch while staying at the hotel down the street. We got the sandwiches and including tip was about $18. Both sandwiches were awesome. Bread was toasted and had a nice crunch to it. Service was quick, friendly and they brought our food to us outside (was a really nice day to be out). Would definitely recommend.

Love this place, great food and great people. There's just ONE thing I wish they'd do that they don't do: could you guys please include nutrition information on the menu? Or maybe have printouts available upon request with at least nutritional estimates? I know it would vary a lot, especially for the dogs of the month, but I'm sure the sausages and brats have that info on their packaging, the buns probably do too, then all it would take is recording the approximation for whatever mixtures or toppings go on the dogs. You'd only have to total it all up once for each dog, document it, and then never have to worry about it again. Assuming measurements/quantities are similar for each kind of hotdog, it would at least provide an estimate to go by if you're counting calories or trying to hit some nutritional minimum. It would've helped me out a lot on my visit today. Doesn't have to be exact, just something to give someone a rough idea of nutritional/caloric value.
