We had the Chicago style dog and some delish tater tots. The Dog was well built with all the expected ingredients and was hot and "snappy." Not the best but really good for the price! It was day 1 in Chicago and it was exactly...More

Paid $5 bucks for a Char-dog. The onions were so pungent my eyes were watering & the tomatoes they put on my dog were mushy. The hot dog itself had no taste & bland. This is the worst hot dog I have ever eaten.

I ate my first Chicago hot dog here and it was delicious! They had a great deal where you got a large hot dog, fries, and a soda for $9 - what a deal! Definitely check it out if you are in the area.

I have only tried the Char Brat at this place. I have it smothered with onion and mustard. I enjoy this brat so much I've never tried anything else! Love the brats every single time!

Not a fan of the Chicago dog, there is just to much going on here. This place was fine, but I just didn't like the dog.
