Good food, great prices

We went here for lunch while we were in Mt. Vernon. We ordered Chicago dogs. All the hot dogs come with fries. Couldn't believe it at that price! Good dogs, good fries, good chili and cheese (we got them on our fries.) Drinks are all canned. They even have a drive thru.

The food here was genuinely extraordinarily good. I rarely give 5 stars but this one deserves it. This place requires a "detour" off the interstate to reach it, but it is totally worth it. The chicago dog was the best I have ever had in every respect. So was the polish sausage. The fries were simply superb. I thought they... More

My grandfather and I drove from Centrailia to have an awesome actual Chicago dog experience and we loved every bit of it.

I love hotdogs, so I was very excited for them to open. We tried it during the first few months and weren't impressed. We chalked it up to new restaurant jitters. I ordered a chili cheese dog, I was not impressed with my dog, the chili was good. We went back a second time and my food was incorrect. My... More

I am seldom on the East Side of Mount Vernon but it usually doesn't change much over time so I was fairly surprised years ago to see a new place to eat there called Bugsy's Chicago Dogs. The name intrigued me. I have only been to Chicago once so I wouldn't know a Chicago hot dog from any other city... More

Quarter pound hot-dog, home-made fry's & a pop for 6 bucks. Great deal & unique atmosphere. They top the quality hot-dog with whatever you want. Fast, friendly, & clean, it was so much better than the chain fast foods. I loved the home-made fry's! You can't find them on every corner.

We were driving through Mount Vernon and were looking for something quick, but better than fast food for dinner. We were happy with Bugsy's - the brats and hot dogs were good, the Italian beef and BBQ beef were okay. The restaurant was clean and the staff was helpful.

After scheduling an overnight stay in Mt. Vernon, we looked on Trip Advisor for ideas on where to eat. My husband loves Chicago Hot Dogs and gets them whenever they are available, so that was vote #1. I love Gyros, so that was vote #2 and we entered Bugsy's into the GPS and learned it was less than 3 miles... More

We had a very good experience here! The atmosphere was great. It was very clean, and the food was delicious! I'm a vegetarian, and I'm loved the vegetarian pita and Greek salad. I'm excited to try the vegetarian special on Fridays. The staff was almost very friendly. We get a great deal too. Great food, large portions, and cheap prices!
