2 stars only cause the menu is mostly cheap and the place is cool, but that's about it. Incredibly overrated, for the hype that this place has, I was shockingly disappointed. The food is comparable to that of a school cafeteria. They don't have lettuce and tomatoes, only cheese, pickles and diced onions and don't even serve Coca-Cola in glass bottles like you would expect at a place like this. They also have very limited hours for a place that I would expect to be open in the evenings. I hardly ever see them open.Kid-friendliness: Kids will have fun at this retro style bar and the whole menu is basically a kids menu.Parking: Plenty of parking on either side of the streets and free public parking lot at the end of the block, nearby.Wheelchair accessibility: Only from outside, really. Too cramped inside.

If you're visiting downtown Lagrange then this is one of those must stops , been in business here for 100 years or so , known mostly for the dogs but the burgers off that flat top are great as well! Can't go wrong either way. Very cool spot with lots of history , governors and other pillars have pulled up a spot to the old bar and enjoyed a dog here..

CJ's is a must try when you visit LaGrange. They are family owned and the food/service is on point with the cozy, laid back, down-home atmosphere. This location on Bull St is small with stools at the counter and a few small 2 person tables lining the wall. They offer carry out and it is worth the trip. They have another location on West Point Rd that offers more seating and a drive thru. I highly recommend this restaurant. I hope they continue to serve LaGrange as a locally owned and operated business. I believe we are losing these kinds of places due to the economy and we need these special places to help remind us of where we came from and the importance of community. So, if you are in need of an easy stress-free stop for a simple hotdog or hamburger to escape the hustle I suggest the slaw dog and a large sweet tea ?Kid-friendliness: Family friendly atmosphere.Parking: Hard to find parking anywhere on Bull St during meal times.

We were out exploring LaGrange and came across this iconic eating establishment. Being that we love hot dogs and it was lunchtime it was perfect timing. They have outside window orders , counter front and narrow dining tables inside. 2 doors to get down either side. We sat at the counter seats, menu right in front of you, quick and friendly service. They were pumping out boiled dogs on steamed buns and steamed burgers. We were later informed at the brewery down the street (Wild Leap) the grilled chicken sandwich is also the time. Anyway I had a chile dog, double onions and a line of mustard made perfectly, bag of chips and a Coke. The wife had a chile dog, chip and a Coke. I enjoyed it and the atmosphere so much I had another chile dog..? We prefer these types of establishments to the chains anyway!

Great little place…step back into time. Very accommodating with the no bun option too! You must try the ice cream sandwiches are made with FRESH baked cookies!! Family owned. Great friendly staff. We enjoyed our meal and visiting!

Wow, what an experience! It’s too bad these types of places are disappearing, because they have so much character. We were able to find a seat at the counter and our order was quickly taken on a notepad. I got a cheeseburger and chili dog with onions. My wife got a chili dog with onions and slaw dog and we both got chips and a drink. It was fun to watch them steam the hotdogs and cheeseburgers to order and you can tell this place is loved. A true hidden gem if you’re in LaGrange.

While cruising through downtown La Grange I got hungry. I didn't want to sit down at some superschmancy place that was going to take a lot of time. I just wanted to grab some grub to go. I ordered the double cheeseburger and a hot dog to go and they were both fantastic. The walk-up window is an excellent idea.I'll be back....

Five-star and down home service and food. It beats the chain fast food places. People who work there are friendly. They still serve Coca-Cola in the 6.5 ounce bottle! The atmosphere is down home. The hotdogs are far superb to any chain. Excellent coleslaw. A LaGrange institution.

Great old-school window-service/diner restaurant with a retro vibe. SUPER friendly people and good food. Hot dogs, hamburgers, ice cream sandwiches... yep. Wish more restaurants were like this!!

A staple of LaGrange Georgia. I eat here almost every time we go to town. Food is always great, service is superb and the prices are excellent. My favorite is a hot dog with spicy relish and cheese.
