Elvis Ate Here

Very interesting little dive. Great hot dogs, but much more on the menu! Fun stop.

A roadside hot dog place has quirky decor and boasts about the time Elvis Presley ate there. They have a huge selection of hot dogs and loose meat sandwiches. A movie was once filmed there. Check out the painting of Elvis in the ladies room!

Elvis is claimed to have stopped in for a foot-long hot dog in 1961. There's a small Elvis shrine inside. The movie filmed here, in 1972, was "Deathdream" [aka "Dead of Night"] about a Vietnam vet zombie terrorizing the town.
