Right off Route 8 in Connecticut (Exit 26 - Naugatuck) is a Hot Dog oasis, run by two ladies, that is certainly worth the stop. The menu runs the regular gamut of fast food fare ranging from hamburgers, steak sandwiches, and sausage, to seafood, along with various daily specials. But the real treat here is the place's namesake, the hot dogs. A tasty Hummel long dog, grilled and served on a slightly smaller, firm and equally tasty bun. There are two main windows at the front of this building, orders taken at the one to the right, pick-ups to the left.
Food comes packaged in a cardboard box with a foil cover. This works out much better than the individually wax paper wrapped items from other places, as the condiments stay on the food where they belong, not all over the paper. A range of free condiments are available right outside the pick-up window, which include both yellow and brown mustards, ketchup, relish, and raw onions (personal pet peeve of mine being the places that only offer the brown style mustard...Yellow Rules!). Only complaint found so far is the chili. An extremely mild, bean-less style that tastes more like meaty spaghetti sauce, we don’t feel it’s worth the 50 cents a dog extra.
There's usually been a short waiting line, but it moves fast. Plenty of seating, both inside and out, including a gazebo for shady open air dining. Ample parking is provided in their own off-road lot.
