I try the home cut fries where ever we go and these were the best I have ever had (since my dad's from the fry stand we had). Cute little place on the street. The hot dogs were very good... skip the burger (a bit dry). So all in all..... FRIES yes! Dogs yes! fun atmosphere and friendly service YES!

We found this restaurant on our previous trip to Ft Myers Beach and made it back again for another Chicago Dog and fries. It didn't disappoint. They have some seating at the counter and a few tables in the parking lot. Not much on ambience but you can overlook that with the food and the guys behind the counter are... More

I ate at Chicago Dawg House while visiting Ft Myers Beach for 3 days. Everything is fresh and homemade. The french fries are outstanding and adding cheese and chili on top made them more amazing. The burgers and dogs were very tasty. The location is convenient to spending the day on the beach.

This place is a little food stand along the walkway that is worth a visit. The guys behind the counter can only work so fast so if it is busy you may wait awhile for your food. Outdoor seating only and it is very limited.

I am revising my review of Aug, 2014. They took the beef sandwich off the menu and I am really bummed. How could you? What is next, you going to start serving Ball Park hot dogs instead? Your beef sandwich was the best sandwich in SW Fla. and now the menu is just a basic fast food.

This is a great beach stop- dogs are Vienna beef- steamed - and served Chicago style- neon relish, sport peppers and all. On our beach trip I don't think my kids ever walked by the stand without getting one.
