“Food fanatics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We are a family who has traveled all over the US often times just to eat at a favorite restaurant. We will be adding Bugsy's Chicago Dogs to that list. After a day of traveling we stopped in and ordered chicago dog and a couple of italian beefs, it was 8 pm and the food was wonderful. Hot and fresh just like the ones we remember from Chicago. Fries were fresh cut and delicious. The owners were delightful, took time to talk to us and shared their story. If you are near Mt Vernon this is a place you do not want to miss. Well worth the drive. Did not eat the gyro while there, but saw one and wished I would have ordered one too. Thanks for a wonderful dinner and great conversation!
Prices may be slightly higher than typical fast food, but well worth the extra buck!

The best place in southern Illinois to get a little taste of Chicago. Never had a problem with the food. They do a great job.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review on Tripadvisor. I am happy you liked our food and hope that you will stop back in sometime. We take pride especially in our Greek items as they came from my husband's grandmother's long line of great Greek recipes.
