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."

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.

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?
