So good!

This place is just great. Fast service, great hot dogs. It's an awesome lunch stop! It's not a 5-star restaurant, & it's very easy to miss if you don't know where exactly to look. But once you find it, you'll definitely come back.

I've been going to Chi-town hot dogs for a little over a year now. This is the only place I have been, outside of IL, that I have had a hot dog that really reminded me of being at Wrigley Field. The owners are Chicago natives, so they know how to do a Chicago dog correctly. If you aren't happy... More

Visited Chitown dogs today based on the ranking in Clarksville on tripadvisor and received friendly customer service. The dogs were OK. I ordered a slaw dog and the flavor was mild, the dog itself was small and the bun was large. My husband ordered the Chicago dog with peppers and he felt it too was mild in flavor. Won't return...

Who'd think to find real deal Chicago style hot dogs behind a Dairy Queen in Clarksville TN?! Hot Dogs are amazing (of course) but the Italian Beef is a (messy) wonder of a sandwich. The chili tamales are also incredible.

Excellent Service and amazing Chicago style Dog. We always heard about this place from friends in town, who raved about how good it was. It is a mom/pop eatery hidden behind the Big Lots/Dairy Queen by the river. Service was great and prepared fast. Great Chicago style Italian beef sandwich and hot dogs. The Italian beef sandwich is ginormous and... More

Delicious dog served fresh, hot and with whatever you want on it. The service is excellent. Mom and Pop place. Outdoor seating or drive in/drive out. Very reasonable. It is kind of hidden in the plaza next to Big Lots on Riverside Drive. We seem to forget that it is there. We need to go there more often. A local... More

I'm a life-long Chicagoan so I know the real deal when I see it. This guy is as real as it gets, so I always stop in when I am in Clarksville. The owner tells me they get all their stuff (and if you don't think the bread/buns make or break a hot dog or, more importantly, Italian Beef then... More
