If you like hotdogs, this is the place to go

Hot dogs served with every combination you have ever heard of. Good service and they do have some lunch items other than hotdogs. quite popular with the local lunch crowd.

stopped in on Sunday. Very rainy day. Had a dog with cheese, Hubby had kraut and cheese. very good!! I was surprised. One guy taking order not so patient with people who haven't been there before. He was the same way with a couple that came in after us. The other, who was doing the cooking, was very pleasant and... More

If you like Hot Dogs and need a place to stop for Lunch when in the area - this is it. A wide selection of "styles" to choose from and service was quick and friendly. We even picked up a few bottles of the sauces they were selling as well.

We relocated from Chicago over twenty-five years ago and hardly ever get a chance to go back for a visit. Getting a fun lunch at Joe's Chicago Dogs is the least expensive way to capture that old Chicago feeling! The food is excellent, the setting is fun, and the prices are perfect. One look at that eery bright green Chicago-style... More

This place needs more credit then it is given here in trip advisor. I am a local and have never had a bad meal here. As far as price I have no idea what people are complaining about, feel it is very reasonable! Combos are the same price as A fast food joint and the food is 100X better. I... More

So I took my two kiddos in to get cheese dogs, 2 small fries and 2 small sodas and spent nearly $20.00 with tax. We are talking about TWO hotdogs with cheese….I mean seriously…they just aren't that good. Maybe it was just me, but I could have grilled 12 natural casing hot dogs, put them on standard bread rolls, and... More

I was disappointed to see they got rid of the ice cream milk shakes they originally served. Their menu prices are still way too high which tends to keep my family away when you have kids to feed but if it's just my husband and I or if I'm running errands with only one child I would stop in as...

I ordered a plain hot dog on poppy seed bun and fries. The fries were good but I could have had the same quality hot dog buying a pack of Ballpark franks at Hannaford. What disgusted me was the lack of cleaning. Nasty filth on the right side of the soda machine; dust under the overhang right above where we... More

Great place to meet a friend, have lunch and a couple of beers without breaking the bank! Always friendly and unhurried at Chicago Dogs.

I do like the novelty of the meats and subs that Ch-town-D provides, however the prices are high enough that I feel compelled to write a review. A King Kielbassa Sub cost $7.49, but the "combo" (fries, drink) sent the bill to $12.50. That's pushing it, in my opinion. The renovation looks great, however.
