A real chicago dog in Texas

This place has the real thing. A Vienna beef hot dog Chicago style. The pace is a dive but a great dog makes it worth going.

But not much to write home about. The service was friendly I liked them,I love beef hot dogs. It s just that I'm not a fan of cramped places. I had never had a Chicago style hot dog so I'm glad for the experience but unless you are just tired of food on the River walk then great can't complain... More

Such a small shop, but sure was busy. We stopped in for lunch while taking in the Main Plaza. I ordered the Chicago Style Hotdog. Oh my! It was delicious!!! Wish I had one now. :)

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.

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
