• The Hot Dogs at The Half Shell
    The Hot Dogs at The Half Shell are the best you’ll find anywhere. The lean, perfectly seasoned dog is prepared in a steamer so that the wiener doesn’t absorb any grease or fat at the same time keeping its flavor and moistness. These great tasting dogs are served on a warm steamed bun and can be ordered “Naked” or topped with your favorite toppings. Some of these toppings are:  our Famous Homemade Chili, Kraut, Relish, Cheese, Jalapenos, etc. We offer several specialty dogs such as a Chicago, New York, Tex Mex or Stew Dog and Wicked Pimento Dog.
