The Dish with Dee Dee: Let's get "Cozy"
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WRSP) —
If you haven't been here, you've probably heard of this place.
The Cozy Dog Drive In in Springfield is the home of the famous hot dog on a stick.
The history dates back to the 1940's when Ed Waldmire had an idea.
"He saw a corn dog being baked, and he wanted to find a quicker way to do it," says current owner Josh Waldmire.
The secret lies in a special recipe batter.
A hot dog is dipped into the special mix, placed in oil, and in just minutes, a "cozy dog" is born.
There's even Ed's patented "Cozy Rack."
The device allows Josh to make three cozies at a time.
Try one, and you'll get it.
It's too "cozy" to resist!
