We lived in Chicago over 25 years ago, and on this return trip we just had to go to an all-time favorite! The char-grilled hot dogs and French fries were just as good as we remembered....this place is a classic

A small dive joint in Lincoln Park. I found out about it absolutely at random just bus riding until I came somewhere interesting. I got a char Polish dog with everything and fries. The dog was so good I went back and got a second one. I do believe from their reaction I am just one customer in a long... More

Good hot dogs. Didn't receive the hyped s-talking, but I was ok with that. The Chicago style dog is good, as was most everything else. Prices are fair, and it's in a nice outer neighborhood. Nothing gourmet or life-changing about it.

We recently visited Chicago and came into the trip wanting to try an authentic, Chicago dog. My girlfriend had gotten a recommendation from one of her co-workers that used to live in Chicago to try this place. It was very good, and I can now say I've had an authentic Chicago-Dog. I would definitely go back

This place, is great for the reactions. If you are conservative and narrow minded, this is probably is not the place for you as the experience is what you get every day at the wiener circle. Don't expect some mannerly person to take your order, they are known for this entertainment. You talk foul to them and they do the... More

Where do you start? The personalities in this restaurant can only be appreciated for how they operate and all the good humored vulgarities that make this place unique. I cant say the food is any better than that of a hot dog cart, which those might be even better, but the hype and exposure this place has had, makes it... More

Just know that once you step foot inside Wiener Circle, they will tear you a new one. Their ammo is that they will make fun of you. It is part of the act so dont take it personally. The food is so good. What isnt good at 4am! I dare you to order a chocolate milk shake! do it! do... More

Never had a Chicago dog? This is a real treat. Come as you are lunch, dinner, late night. Char dog with everything x the onions for me is more than a meal. Didn't stop me from ordering the fries, word to the wise if you are with someone share the fries the order is huge. If you are driving good... More

The Wieners Circle is located only a dozen blocks north of my home, at 2622 North Clark Street in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, but it took me more than 30 years before I got around to testing its signature Char-Dogs. I shouldn't have waited so long. The Wieners Circle is a hot dog stand that is famous for four things--its... More
