I personally liked the wiener and cheese fries but the other five in our group did not. The biggest complaint was the cheese on the dog and fries tasted " gritty". Be prepared to sit outside, no matter what the weather, at picnic tables. When you order expect to be razed this is part of the "charm".

Our friend brought us here to try out their hot dogs. He'd warned us about the bad service that's why we weren't surprised when we asked them for forks, they didn't have any. This is a small eatery with very limited seats. I guess it would OK if it wasn't raining or having freezing rain, you can sit outside. But... More

My husband and I wanted to try an authentic Chicago Hot Dog and we read a lot about this place, so we figured it was the best example we'd find. We read a lot about the surly late-night service, but the service during the day when we visited was pleasant and friendly. It's very inexpensive for a quick meal. The... More

I went there around lunch time and got a couple of Char Dogs. They were decent, but nothing I would go out of my way for again. The staff was nice and the hotdogs were pretty cheap.

I come here every now and then to get a hot dog. The price isn't too bad, and they're open pretty late. The staff can be a bit....eccentric at times but its all in good fun. A good place to pick up a hot dog.

It lived up to its reputation, and yes Ms.Poochie was there in full effect. She gave me a good cussing out and I was fully entertained. I had a hot dog (Chicago Style) it was great. After the funny back and fourth . She winked at me and smiled and demanded I bring her a cheese steak back next time... More

I heard about this place on the Conan O'Brien Show and have wanted to check it out ever since. I finally got to experience that this time I came into Chicago for a visit. I came during the day so it was not as crazy as they are in the evening, as one of the ladies who was also waiting... More

Everyone needs to check this place out. Bring an empty stomach and an open mind. Eating here has made for a story that I will share with friends and family for many years to come. Rated 18A for explicit language.

The Char cheddar burger was so delicious. We were looking for some rudeness but we realized that we were too early.
