Dusting is not their forte

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... read 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.

Giving Chicago Dogs 2 stars was VERY generous on my part. I kinda like the place and I love their dogs, but tonight was another story. I ordered two dogs, no relish, no peppers and I got a load of relish and peppers. It was mostly picked off! Then the fries were like well done potato sticks. Tonight was far... More

Simply wonderful Chicago style hot dogs as well as many other styles. French fries are hand cut and tasty, although not my favorite. Worth a stop if you are in a hot dog mood.

I've stopped here a half dozen times or more. The staff are always friendly and the food is fast but consistently good. I will usually order the chili cheese dog with fries and a drink. They have some of the best French fries anywhere in the area. The only time that I didn't enjoy my meal was the time I... More

We had an appetite for Chicago dogs, ordered two and also ordered the sausage with grilled peppers and onions. The sausage was far superior to the dogs - I'd recommend that. The fries were as good as others have noted. The service was kind of slow but you can watch baseball while you wait.

We go here when we want a simple meal that's cheap, fast and tasty. The French fries are really good. They are shoe string and obviously hand cut, fresh!! There is a huge selection of condiments, especially hot sauce. They have "Slush Puppies" (different name - same thing), Root Beer Floats, Old Fashioned root beer in a frosted mug and... More

One of the best meals I've ever had, in a hot dog joint? In some respects, absolutely. Chicago Dogs sells oversize, juicy, Chicago-style beef hot dogs, served with the classic Chicago combination of tomatoes, onion, antifreeze-green relish, mustard and "sport" peppers and they're truly great. Just like Chicago. Ever try getting a proper German-style frankfurter with sauerkraut in Chicago? True... More

Don't be deceived by the name. This place has all sorts of deli options and brews. They will make any sandwich to order.
