Delicious

Simple, tasty, fair price and a tavern next door where you can eat your dog, watch a game and have a beer. What else would you need? No better way to spend an afternoon.

Stopped here for a quick bite and they were very busy but I had my order done correctly what seemed like a blink of an eye. Great customer service and delicious food. Great job team, great job!

I needed a Chicago dog before I headed back to the west coast. I had passed Clark Street Dog in the evening and was always crowded so decide morning would be a great time for a traditional dog served with a dill pickle spear. It deliverered what I remembered.

Was in the area for the Blue Man Group and got on TripAdvisor to see what was around. Decided on coming here and was not disappointed. We walked in, they started on our order and we were sitting down eating in 5 min. We had the italian beef, clark st hot dog and a chili cheese dog with fries...everything was... More

None of the food is good for you but it all tastes amazing. If you're not used to heavy greasy deliciousness split a meal between two but you won't want to share. You need to order the cheesecake bites. And the cheese fries and a corn dog. Basically order one of everything and a beer.

Gross and greasy. This is not authentic Chicago. Wiener Circle is the king. I don't know why this place is even on this list!!!! It shows you how wrong it is!

Fell in love with this juicy burger on a grilled buttered bun as a tourist, 20 years ago. Ate here yesterday and the same woman took my order. I love that it's only gotten better, yet stayed the same, for all these years. Full bar, parking lot, tv, outdoor seating, and when you ask for Crispy fries you get Crispy... More

I love this bar. They've spent years serving alcoholic root beer, pickle back shots and great beer for cheap. They just remodeled, and the place looks lovely, but the prices stayed low. There's a huge billboard above it and you kind of hang out around the enormous pole that supports it. It also split right down the middle and the... More
