METROPOLIS, IL – Miltons Hot Dogs is a sidewalk-served, carryout-only eatery located on Market Street across from the Courthouse and the giant Superman statue in beautiful downtown Metropolis, IL.

Gourmet Hot Dogs Now Served in Superman Square

I went there today and ordered two chili dogs measuring 6×3 inches that happened to be some of the best chili dogs I have ever had. The high quality chili, cheese and onions in concert with Nathan’s hot dogs was a recipe for perfection. The end result was a gourmet hot dog like no other. The staff was very kind and had our dogs neatly packaged and ready to go in no time.

The Name MILTON

The hot dog eatery was named after Milton,  an Attorney that had an office in this building for years. He retired two years ago at 91. He’s now 93 still living in town. His dad worked as an attorney in this same building as well.

The construction of the building began in 1905 and was finished in 1908. It’s all brick and oak timber. The building is like a classic car, it’s gotten better with age.

THE HOT DOG IDEA

The 3-story building was originally built for office space with each floor having a whopping 3200 square feet. Joshua Reagor, real estate agent and owner of the building, explained that:

”It’s just hard to rent office space. So I told my wife: ya know what…we are going to make this work. I said you figure out a business that you want and she came up with this. She designed all this. And of course because I am in real estate I know a lot of sign people. We mainly did it for our girls to work and maybe make a couple part time jobs for someone else.”

BEST HOT DOGS EVER!

These are the best hot dogs around that are loaded with the best toppings ever.  Please visit this hot dog eatery as much as possible to help support family owned businesses.

METROPOLIS, IL – The Daily Donut Shop features delicious donuts made fresh daily at Butler and E. 5th Streets in Metropolis, IL.

I purchased a mixed order of a dozen donuts for only $10.00 plus tax. I had a regular and a long glazed donut so far and they were the best donuts I’ve ever had.

The dough was incredibly fresh and the glaze was sweetened perfectly to boot. That said, this place turned the basic glazed donut into a gourmet delicacy. OMG they were yummy 🙂

METROPOLIS, IL –  Cordavino’s Italian Kitchen is now open across the street from Fat Edds Roadhouse on Ferry Street in Metropolis, IL.

We were instantly seated and served right away. The waitress helped us with all of our questions in a polished and cordial manner. We got our fresh salads fast and a few minutes later our dinners followed.

The Fettuccine and Spaghetti dinners were both fantastic. Between the quick service and the great tasting Italian cuisine, this place easily gets five stars with some to spare.

You must visit this new and wonderful addition to Metropolis.
