“Love the Italian Beef”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Great, cheap meals. The dipped Itlaian Beed sandwich is fabulous as well as the hot dogs. I visited several times on my last trip and will go bak again.

“Best "fast food" ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Granted, I didn't have a hot dog, but I did have the best chicken sandwich ever. Also, the fries are perfection. The chicken was crispy (fried), juicy and tasty. The bun and fixing (bacon, lettuce, etc.) were perfectly prepared.

It looked like a chicken sandwich from a commercial! How often can you say THAT?!

“Incredible following for a hot dog and beef restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

If you are trying to find the best of Chicago in terms of restaurants, put local to Schaumburg Portillo's and Lou Malnatis on the list. Always a long wait for a reason, Finish it off at Wildfire and you dont even need to leave the neighborhood.

“Great Fast Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

There cheesy beef sandwich - great!! Jumbo hot dog or regular hot dog are Vienna all beef hot dogs. Grilled chicken sandwich is good. Chili, spicy but not that spicy. Milkshakes are made just right. Good atmosphere for family with kids. Always crowded. Other locations throughout Chicago suburbs.
