Walked from the comedy club and enjoyed an amazing hot dog. Do it up like a real Chicagoan and order your dog with everything on it. It was extremely yummy! Another vendor will sell you a good Blue Moon beer in a big schooner to...More

Stopped here for lunch with a tour. Italian beef sandwiches. Don't let them do full dip as roll gets to soggy to pick up. Chocolate cake is more than big enough to split & well worth it. They also have Chicago hot dogs, salads, ribs....More

Definitely a place to eat when you’re in Chicago. They literally serve everything and they are affordable. I had the famous hot dog which was different from what Im used to but very Chicago and delicious.

This place is a Chicago staple AND they now have two places open in Minnesota (Maple Grove & Woodbury). Do yourself a favor and get an extra juicy beef with mozzarella and gardenaire. You won't regret!

Had the Italian beef sandwich with a sausage in the middle. Great to find a place that isn't afraid to season their meat. Fries were excellent. A friend recommended I get my sandwich dunked in gravy, but I got the gravy on the side and...More
