Great little outdoor place for some good eats.

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 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.

I spent a week on Ft Myers Beach and had lunch at Chicago Dawg House every day. Chicago is my home and they have brought Chicago hot dogs to the beach. The food was consistently excellent. Everything was freshly made to order. Definitely have the french fries! The owner was extremely pleasant, accommodating to my special requests and every day... More

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.

It was fast and convenient. I believe it closes early afternoon. The hot dogs were fine. Nothing spectacular. Very nice people and good service.

My son spotted this place on the way home from our first day at the beach and talked me into stopping. I'm so glad we did, because these hot dogs are delicious! The cravings kept coming...must be the neon green relish! The owner was super friendly and even shared his watermelon with us. Totally enjoyed everything about this laid back... More
