For under $5, have a great dog just the way you want it. Polish dog was nicely grilled, and had that nice charred on the outside crunch.

Food was freshly prepared when we ordered. Husband had the Gyro (the lamb shaved off there) son had the cheeseburger and I had the Chicago dog. Serving sizes were generous. The prices were low, considering the quality and size. We had the Baklava for dessert and at $2.59 it was a delicious bargain. Service was fast and friendly. Nice to... More

After an amazing Blue Man Group show (highly recommendable!), I stopped in at The Clark Street Dog for a hotdog - did not opt for chips as I was hungry but not that hungry. The hotdog (with all the trimmings, onion, gherkin, tomato, chillies) looked a bit bleak, but at least it was fairly tasty. When I left I saw... More

We had great Chicago hot dogs that were as good as I have ever had in this city. The French fries and Italian beef sandwiches had by others in our party were also superb. This was a very tasty meal for a low cost.

Really? Award winning Chicago dogs? Blah. This place us over-priced and just like ever other Chicago dog place. I will not be back. Too many better places. And having a $10 minimum for credit cards should be illegal.

For a small town, intimate feel this is the bar. Its affordable, confortable, and personable. This bar doesn't compare to any around if you're going for any of the above listed criteria!
