Lettuce on a HOT DOG?

If you like hotdogs and salads, this is a hot dog salad on a bun. My favorite hotdog in the area. Different from a "Chicago" hot dog, but a good change of pace. Everything is fresh.

Looked like a classic Chicago Hot Dog Joint. The place overall seemed clean but could use some updates so it does not look so dingy. I had the hot dog meal with a fresh fruit cup. The hot dog was good with all the typical Chicago Dog Toppings. I would say I have had better but would get one here... More

Oak Park landmark churning out average fast food fare. Would have hoped for a signature stand-out product as they have been in the area for decades, but nothing special stands out. Just your basic "Portillo's" kinda joint (but not as good).

There's so much on the bun, the hot dog is almost an afterthought. Delicious! Deservedly popular with families, businessmen, and teens alike.

Middle of the road burgers, dogs, and fries. Decent food, quick and inexpensive. Not recommended after school, when the place is overrun by (often ill-mannered) students from the adjacent high school).

Gotta get a chicago dog in Chicago, right? why not from here - serving sizes are big and you will not leave feeling deprived. Hot Chocolate was yummy and had some cheese sticks too. Enjoy!

This hot dog palace puts a lot on the dog, not just the Chicago style tomato, pickle, sports pepper and mustard. It is a great place for a fast dog and fries. Reasonably priced.

I can still remember when it was located on the otherside of the street, so sue me! But I still love everything I order from their menu. Recently, I've taken to order their turkey burger with everything on it and it's good, filling. I haven't gone back to my childhood "safety blanket", pizza puff and cheese fries, but I will... More

Tasty Dog has been around forever! It's newer location isn't as interesting as the old place but the food is still great. There is nothing like a cheese dog with all the toppings! Their hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, vegetarian sandwiches and shakes are great too! If you're in the Oak Park area, it's a great place to go to eat.
