Yesterday's has been a favorite stop in Eastown for 30+ years for me! Love those dogs! Downfall you sometimes have a wait!

So I think I visited this place for the first time sober the other day. I was really hungry and in the area, so I swung in. I am not sure where people get off saying these are the best chili dogs in the world. They are darn good, however. They fill a need in my chili dog addiction, and... More

I know, I know, they are rude and the hot dogs are boiled, but there is something to this place. I love how they dress a dog and I crave it now from hundreds of miles away. The steamed buns and homemade relish make up for the lack of quality in dog. Ask for the Killer Dog...not on the menu.... More

Still the best chili dog by far it's been over 10 years since I was last there after moving and came back at Christmas this year and not 1 thing has changed. The dogs still taste exactly how I remember them. They make a board full of dogs at a time as you can watch them make on a huge... More

A funky place it is with walls splattered and plastered with stuff. The skinny, filler -full franks are BOILED until there is no flavor or texture - just mush. Any flavor comes from the copious amounts of toppings people add. And yet, people find something to love. I much prefer the skin-on, regular sized, grilled dogs from Cranker's that pop... More

Yesterdog is a fun restaurant experience. They have dogs, chips, and drinks. Their motto is "there's no such thing as a regular hot dog." Read the menu on the wall and be ready to call out your hot dog order. Then be ready to eat a fabulous dog or two. Keep the napkins handy.

Great place if you love dogs...the hot variety! Many options and all taste great! Don't settle on just one dog...get a whole kennel of them! Atmosphere is really fun! Don't miss the opportunity of going and devouring a great dog or three. One hint: study the dog options before you are asked to order, or you might get passed by!

Nothing fancy Cash only, meter parking- old fashion on the inside. Dogs are simple cheddar dog nothing but chili and cheese, Yesterdog Chili, Onion, Mustard, Pickle, Ketchup. Ultradog... More

Yesterdog is a GR institution.The menu is brief, the service fast no frills and the dogs are tasty and cheap. I've taken a group of kids and treated them all and still had money left over. What kid doesn't love to be treated to hot dogs. Located for many years in the hippest area of Eastown, loved by locals and... More

For those of you who've had the pleasure of experiencing Hot Doug's in Chicago, this is not that place. Their dog quality is average, but selection is abbreviated. What they have going for them is location, great staff, and it's an awesome place to have a late night bite with friends and others that will become your friends. Yester, as... More
