Amazing Vienna Beef hot dogs! Coney style and Chicago style are amazing. We had ours to go and ate on the tailgate. My kids scarfed the dogs down. Owner is a blast to talk with! Highly recommend this place to any local or out of towner!

My son commented, "dad, this is the best Chicago dog I've ever had!" That says a lot, because we've eaten at all the suburban Chicago fast food restaurants synonymous with "traditional." Steamed bun, original Vienna Beef products, plus certification in their "hall of fame" says it all. Friendly owners too. Will be back next time we're in town. Would have... More

The restaurant is in an awkward location with many industrial buildings in the area. However, if you are looking for a taste of Chicago in Detroit area, this is the place to go.

By far the best Hot Dogs around. The chili dogs are outstanding but the Chicago dogs are really good too. The hardest part is deciding which dog to order.

Great Beef just like Chicago. My only complaint is they are missing the provolone cheese, it's why I can't give them a 5. Hot dogs look great but I haven't tried them yet. They run daily specials and their service is fast.

Great Chicago dogs made with correct stuff - Vienna beef dogs, poppy seed buns, bright green relish, etc. Great Chicago style dog with and without cheese. Also have Maxwell st. polish, Italian beef, etc. Quick, clean, fun, cheap, what else could you ask?
