Vienna beef on the beach

This is a great beach stop- dogs are Vienna beef- steamed - and served Chicago style- neon relish, sport peppers and all. On our beach trip I don't think my kids ever walked by the stand without getting one.

I am revising my review of Aug, 2014. They took the beef sandwich off the menu and I am really bummed. How could you? What is next, you going to start serving Ball Park hot dogs instead? Your beef sandwich was the best sandwich in SW Fla. and now the menu is just a basic fast food.

It was fast and convenient. I believe it closes early afternoon. The hot dogs were fine. Nothing spectacular. Very nice people and good service.

My son spotted this place on the way home from our first day at the beach and talked me into stopping. I'm so glad we did, because these hot dogs are delicious! The cravings kept coming...must be the neon green relish! The owner was super friendly and even shared his watermelon with us. Totally enjoyed everything about this laid back... More

When I'm at the beach I always grab a quick lunch at Chicago Dawg. It's a small stand but they work hard to get the orders out fast. They always have a special with a hotdog and fries for $3.99. That's a great deal for a quick meal on the beach. They have many items on their menu, but I... More

This is the real deal. If ever you had a Chicago dog out around Wrigley Field this place will bring back fond memories! I was told the owner gets everything from Chicago and no doubt he does. Even if you're not from Chicago don't pass this place up!

I'm a Chicago girl born and raised and this is no Chicago Hotdog Stand. Food is average. Atmosphere is bad. Owner is always arguing with worker girl (not even sure it's a worker) and the whole atmosphere is awkward.

12/20/2014 Today at 1:48 pm visit this little restaurant called Chicago Dawg House located at 1207 Estero Blvd, Fort Myers BEA, to find quickly being harassed by its owner which from that since I started making my order he was rude, incensible, bratty and seem to be under the influence of drugs by the way they behaved.

Excellent hotdogs for Fort Myers. The real McCoy. This previous Chicago northsider prepares your hotdogs as he entertains you with his great humor. Great guy - great food! A must for all misplaced Chicagoans.
