Came here for the beef sandwich and enjoyed it very much. Good fries and chocolate malt. Busy place where the locals eat.

The offering is certainly a step up from the McD's of the world. My wife's salad was wonderful and I had a beef of a roll that was very very tasty.

Great food, atmosphere is neat to look through the old photos. Since it was so hot up in Chicago, the upstairs was extremely hot - seemed to have no air.

This was the first meal we ate in Chicago and a great way to start. The food is Hot dogs, Burgers, Sanwiches and Pasta with a Chicago twist. I read somewhere this is supposedly a tourist trap but don't fall for that jive it's good food and I didn't detect any other tourists here but us and there were Cops... More

Great food great value. We had a traditional Chicago hot dog, love the poppyseed buns and the peppers! We also had some chili dogs with extra onions. Food was served fast and very tasty. Beers are only $5 for a fishbowl, with several premium options to choose from

Fabulous dog, fun atmosphere. The 20 bucks spent here was better food then the $250 spent on a famous steakhouse dinner! Should have eaten dinner here too! :-)

I went here with a youth group from our church. We had about 35 people in our group. Even though there was another group of 20+ that came in at the same time. The wait staff was great! They got us through quickly and as far as I know everyone's order was correct! The food was very good, and the... More

I love Chicago Dog's and this is the first place I had to eat when visiting Chicago and it did not disappoint! I devoured by Chicago Dog, it was perfection. My daughter had the Italian Beef sandwich and loved that too. It is a very quirky and cute place with a lot of seating and a fun atmosphere. I would... More
