Hot Dog Johnny's

This roadside hot dog stand serves great hot dogs, birch beer, and fries and is situated along a creek. But the real joy is the option to buy some Buttzville memorabilia like t-shirts, sweats, or post cards. Seems like a relic of an older time and provides a small giggle with the pride in which they promote Buttzville.

[Katy, 05/18/2019]

Hot Dog Johnny's is well-maintained, and has been a roadside stop since 1944. The current building dates from the 1960s, but the original shack is still displayed on the grounds. June 2019: Photo added.
