Cozy Dog Drive-In — Springfield, Illinois

I love corn dogs. I’ve loved them since I used to feast on them regularly at the Dog n Suds near my home as a teenager. When I found out the place where they were created was in Springfield, I knew the next time I was there …

The inside was decorated with Cozy Dog and Route 66 trivia and signs. We ordered six corn dogs for $9.00.

My Dad used to tell me that anticipation was greater than gratification. Never has that been more true than at Cozy Dog Drive In. The dogs looked great, but they were tasteless and somewhat moist. They made us feel bloated. It’s obvious the place survives on its reputation. If you’re ever in Springfield, avoid this place. You can get a better corn dog at the grocery store or your neighborhood Sonic.
