“When you want a good hot dog and fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Talked to the owner one night, and he is originally from Chicago and missed having a place to go for a Chicago hot dog, so he started Windy City Red Hots. They have bratwurst, sausage, hot dog, and other sandwich choices on the menu. We have come back repeatedly for the classic Chicago style hot dogs (which are excellent) and fries. Service has been consistently friendly. You can get bottled micro-brew beer to drink, as well as soft drinks. Small, very casual restaurant where you order at the counter, sit down, and they bring out your food. Customers often have their children there or are meeting with friends.

“A little bit of Chicago in Leesburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

If you miss the typical Chicago Hot Dog/Italian Beef corner stand, this will make you homesick. Chicago style dogs, polish sausage, and Italian beef sandwiches. Even have tamales Chicago style! Loved it!

“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.
