“Pretty authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

My wife was born and raised in Chicago. She loves Windy City and it is the closest thing she can get to authentic Chicago beef out in this area. The Ashburn location next to the nursery on Route 7 is close to our house and a nice place to stop by when we are out running errands. The Beef, pizza puffs, and hot dogs are all excellent and you cant go wrong with anything on the menu. We are frequent eaters here and will be back.

“My son's favorite place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This little niche shop focuses on hot dogs (and a few other offerings) and they do it well. There is a decent selection of beers available as well as sodas. They even offer vegan and vegetarian dogs in case members of your party are of that persuasion. Service has always been friendly, fast, and efficient. If you miss Chicago or if you want a fast delicious hot dog, you will find what you need here.

“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.
