I love a good hotdog

We ate dinner here on our first night in San Antonio. We ordered chili dogs, Chicago style hotdogs and corn dogs. They were all good. It was a hot night and they didn't have air conditioning. There were a few well-placed fans.

After a day of paying a bit more than planned in San Antonio, we set out to find some bargain eats. We had seen this place while on a bus tour, and decided to give it a try. It's a bit of a hole in the wall, but clean, and great, friendly service. The Chicago Dog was under $4 and... More

Great place owner is bubbly and very chatty. Hotdogs are vienna beef and excellent. Only drawback is no a/c in the restaurant which makes it hot in July and August (they do have fans). Any other month and it's a non issue. Rated it at 4.5 (minus 1/2 star for no a/c) stars, but can't select the appropriate rating in... More

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.

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
