I'm from Chicago, and know Chicago dogs. While theirs aren't authentic Vienna dogs, they're still really good, and they get the little stuff right, such as poppy seed buns and Chicago trimmings. I'm a basic guy, however, and opt for the Fat Frank with mustard. It's 1/4 pound, and really good. I was just there with my ladyfriend, a 2-for-1... More

I literally just ate here and my first thought walking in, is "I wonder why no one else is here and the staff is literally standing here waiting for a customer" on a Friday at dinner time. In a big city... I guess I thought I'd get this scrumptious awesome huge hot dog with tastey fries. Silly me. To sum... More

These hot dogs are great. I love the chili cheese dogs and the fries are awesome also. I've been coming here for about 10 years and will keep coming back.

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.

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
