I had a grilled polish dog - chicago style - with cajin style french fries & a chocolate milk shake. It was pretty good.

Not bad but not the best hot dog ever as claimed by some. The fries were not good in my opinion. Not a bad place to go if you are in the area but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.

The hotdog was just ok. The fries were undercooked I recommend you drive another 10 minutes and eat at Portillos. Nothing special

Had a cheese hot dog and fresh cut fries and both were cooked fresh and very hot and tasty. Simple but delicious and cheap. Only waited about ten minutes....good quick lunch.

I had high expectations based on previous reviews, but my chili cheese dog was pretty bland and the fries were not fully cooked.

It was my first time at Jody's and having seen the great ratings on Trip Advisor, my expectations were high. I have to say, I was dissappointed. The girl at the front was nice and she recommended that I go with one of the specials since fries and a drink come with. I chose the chicken pita. First of all,... More

We just arrived in Joliet and were looking for a place to eat a good Chicago style hot dog. Jody's Hot Dogs did not disappoint us. The dog was delicious. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Good experience.

It was so good that I ordered 13 pounds for the party! I also ordered 100 pc. fried chicken and several pans... More
