I had never had a Chicago style and was pleasantly surprised. The combo of relish, peppers, pickle and mustard on a poppy seed bun was excellent. I had two! The meat being steamed, not boiled, was an added plus. Excellent value at $3.50.

Great spot for displace or misplaced Chicagoans....or those who want a real Chicago hotdog or beef sandwich. The beef sandwich was great. Good roll, excellent beef....comes three ways....dry (only a little gravy) or dipped (my favorite) or dunked. Sweet peppers were fine....could have been in the gravy a bit more, but fine. Vienna all beef dogs, nuclear green pickle relish... More

Being born and raised in the Windy City I was elated when we stumbled upon this place in the middle of Leesburg VA. Now every time we come to Leesburg we make a point to stop here and get a taste of home, sweet home Chicago that is. Can't go wrong with either the Italian beef or the Chicago Dog.

Hubby would talk about the Italian beefs he used to make at a place he worked at while in college in Rochester NY. Lo and behold we come across this place and they have them. He likes his wet with hot peppers. I've had the Italian sausage. That's good too. The dogs looked good too. Next time. Owner is super... More

If you're looking for a good hot dog, this place is the best in Loudoun County, hands down. No frills ... just a good, good hot dog. My wife and I ventured in on a whim and we were not disappointed.Just good dogs! I had the Polish dog with grilled onions and my wife had the chili dog. They have... More

Chicago dogs done right! From the poppy seed rolls to the neon relish! Parking is a pain. The place is small. But worth it for the real thing!

Been here a few times with my husband and a variety of family members. Everyone we bring here loves it--the food is good and simple. The location, like most of the restaurants in downtown Leesburg, is a bit tight. They do have a shared outdoor eating space with the restaurant next door which is great on nice days. My hubby...

My mother spent a few years living in Chicago after graduating from college and one of her favorite treats is an Italian Beef sandwich. Anytime we have gone back to the city to visit, we always pick one up and there was even an instance during a brief layover at O'Hare, that she had us running to a completely different... More

Cheap (2 dogs and a soda for $10 including taxes) Quick (a dozen visits, always food done w/ in 10 min of ordering) Tasty (chili dogs, cheese dogs, Italian sausage, lots of diff condiments) Good beer selection Chicago themed (Bears, Sox, city stuff all over the place) Disliked: Nothing!

Chicago style hot dogs are done right here as well as their Italian beef sandwiches. Also try the Windy City weenie wagon on Bluemont near the nursery. Both are excellent. A huge thank you for bringing Vienna Beef dogs to Loudoun County!
