We are hot dog enthusiasts, plain and simple. It started when we had our first Chicago dog at Portillo's in downtown Chicago and our hunger for fine dogs has never ceased. Everywhere we go we have to "try the dog". And everywhere we've gone, the dogs just haven't measured up...until we visited University Dogs here in our hometown.
This is a little hot dog shop just off the Millikin University campus. A few tables inside and a picnic table outside so don't expect a lot of places to sit. But after all, you didn't come here to sit; you came here for the dogs.
We started with an order for two dogs, Chicago style, and an order of fries. One bite and we were hooked! The dogs were Chicago-perfect! Soft bun, all the right trimmings and oh, the dog!!! Just think, we don't have to travel to Chicago to get a perfect Chicago Dog anymore! That saves a lot of that $4.00 a gallon gas!
Our entire family is fixated on Chicago dogs so we've spread the word....and they all have had the same reaction as us. Some visit this place 2 or 3 times a week.
Not only does this place have great Chicago dogs, they also have great Italian Beef, BBQ specials, cheesecake on a stick, fries....and a wide variety of dogs. I've tried them all and have loved them all. But of couse, I keep coming back to the ultimate dog....The Chicago Dog! Gotta love it!!!
