Best Hot Dog Ever

This is a small hole in the wall place by the River walk. Never been to Chicago but was curious if these hot dogs were really that good. It was the best hot dog I ever had. Now I have to go to Chicago! May get another before I head home.

The Chicago dogs, and there other options were very good. I make a stop there every time I can. I love hot dogs, and I have seen statements about the street vendors, and have purchased there dogs for cheaper. But the lack the taste that Jerry's places in every dog. There place is pretty cramped, and they probley could be... More

Place looked cheap and run down but had overpriced hot dogs. Wasn't especially great but I'm not a true Chicago Dog expert either. Street dog venders produce much better hot dogs for only a couple of bucks. The chili dog was ok, but no better than what I make at home. Presentation seemed mediocre at best. Very friendly staff and... More

Jerry's is a very small restaurant, full of Chicago culture, on Commerce street in the heart of downtown San Antonio. It's hours vary, so it would be best to call, unless you are walking around enjoying downtown San Antonio, the Riverwalk, El Mercado, the Alamo, San Fernando Cathedral and more. Jerry's makes the best Chicago style hot dogs around, with... More

Stopped in here today to try out the hot dogs. The lady working the counter was very friendly and funny. She recommended trying everything on the menu and I wish I could have done it. The hot dogs were amazing; great tasting, served hot and quickly. I ate three and wanted more but I was so full it was not... More

My wife and I were so happy to find Jerry's Chicago style Hot Dogs. The Vienna dogs are so tasty and Jerry makes them to order. Only $4.60 for a huge polish dog with Kraut and onions included. He even sells bottled water for a buck. In a tourist area just blocks from the Alamo surrounded by large expensive hotels... More

After visiting the sites of San Antonio who knew we would come across a Chicago. Style hotdog place. Being from the Chicago area I was bit skeptical but...I have to say it was excellent; truley Chicago style hotdogs. Nice people too. As for the atmosphere...well its a hotdog joint take it for what it is. We liked it.

After a morning of shopping, I treated my hubby to one of his favorite foods in the world... The hot dog! We went to Jerry's, for those of you who know Montreal, Jerry's has the same feel as the Montreal Pool room. We had the Chicago Hotdog all the way, along with a fry and and a chilli cheese fry......
