“Great Hot Dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Always a treat to have a dog here. Polish sausages are wonderfully done as well. Get the Chi-town dog with the works.

“Consistently great food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Do not be fooled by the location - the owners of this hot dog stand consistently serve wonderful Chicago style hot dogs (and, yes, other styles and food items) made to order. They have received some of the highest health inspection scores since they opened and are also super nice people (but none of that would matter if the food was not also excellent). Their potato soup and potato salad (depending on the season) are tasty. When they hand you the bag with your order, in addition to the food you ordered, it ALWAYS contains 2 Tootsie Rolls, 2 napkins, and a salt packet and silverware if you ordered the homemade potato salad or soup. The only menu item that did not seem to measure up was the tamale - it seemed more like a frozen food item than homemade. This is one of the local food establishments that I always recommend to people who are new to the area.

“Best dog in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

Let's be hones, Chi town is far above the best place in Clarksville to get a dog. Having said that, I wouldn't call it a restraunt in the true sense of the word. Drive thru with a couple of concrete tables under a tarp. Yep, that's it. Great when the weather is nice or if you want take home.
The hot dogs cannot be beat. I eat here frequently and have had the dogs, the brats, the tamales, just about everything they serve. The mozzeralla dog is awesome, the brats are cooked perfectly and the flavor is out of this world. Service is always great and the owners really seem to enjoy the work. There's always a litte something special in the bag for you and a big smile.
Beware, it's cash only.

“One of the best chili cheese hot dog i have ever had.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

For a shack in the parking lot of Big Lots, you would not expect much. But what you get is a great Hot dog, for an even better price. Chili is good enough to eat alone.
