“Hot Diggity!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Love this place! Having cabin fever and in need of a change of scenery, we took a drive to Leesburg. Not too familiar with the town, we knew we would have lunch. When we saw this cute little place and the novel idea of an authentic Chicago Red Hot, it was too good to pass up. This is a low key yet tastefuly done shop. The dogs are fantastic and priced just right!

“Great Hot dogs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I like this place because its a little different and its great to grab a dog and then go do something else but its not a destination place for me at all. I wish it had more to offer.

“Great joint to grab a quick bite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A tasty "Chicago-style" dog...gotta love the bright green relish! There isn't much seating room so you might want to plan accordingly if you have small ones in tow or visit during non-peak hours.

“Best Sandwich of the Year!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We were in historic Leesburg to poke around the shops and ran into a couple on the street who just had lunch at Windy City Red Hots. Although they live in Baltimore, they come here periodically for their Chicago-style sandwich fix. We took their recommendation (specifically for the italian beef sandwich, dipped) and popped inside. It's a a small cheery space with Chicago memorobilia, about 12 seats, with another dozen outside behind the restaurant. My italian sandwich bundle of love arrived wrapped in wax paper, and words do not do it justice. Shaved seasoned beef in a wonderful roll, perfectly sopped in au jus, but not to the point of falling apart. Best sandwich of the year, hands down. The staff were great and they had a nice selection of microbew beer to compliment the food. Leesburg will without a doubt be a regular destination. Soooo good!

“Like being in Chicago”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Windy City makes FANTASTIC, authentic Italian beef sandwiches. Additionally, they serve polish sausage, italian sausage, and hot dogs made the right way (the Chicago way). If you go, make sure to get your beef wet with sweet peppers and provolone cheese: you won't be dissapointed.
