Grilled franks are the top dogs at this casual spot for a quick lunch or affordable dinner. – In Short
Founded in 1923, this locally owned and operated fast-food chain serves up hot dogs and other quick-serve favorites. Customers can choose to drive through, take out or dine in. The restaurant is best known for its Coney Island hot dog: a grilled all-beef wiener, chili, mustard, onions on a fresh-baked bun. Other favorites include chili pie with Fritos, cheeseburgers, cheese fries, Italian sausage sandwiches and tater tots. For dessert, choose from apple pie, brownies, milk shakes and cheesecakes.
Hold the Onions and the Kisses – I love everything about JCI - the way they keep the restaurant, the food and even the continuous greetings you receive by employees when you enter, get your food, sit down and leave. My husband and I went here with our 16-month old this past weekend. He loves to eat, so he's usually pretty friendly and happy in restaurants. One particular employee took a liking to him and stopped by our table several times to say "hello." Then she started pinching his cheeks, touching his arms and finally grabbed his head to give him a kiss on the face. We love that people think our baby is cute, but this went a little too far. I've never had to tell someone to back away because he doesn't really have a fear of strangers. But, I wish that the manager would have asked his employee to leave us alone, stop touching our baby and let us enjoy our lunch.
