Gyros are delicious, beef with peppers is delicious, Chicago dog is delicious! An order of fries is a whole basket and plenty to share.

If you like a small, lukewarm hot dog, then this is the place for you. My first time in Chicago and keen to experience the real deal. Picked this on the back of good reviews. I left feeling sorry if this is the best Chicago can offer. Luckily I did have a better experience in other places.

While visiting for the World Series, I walked further down Clarke street to avoid the WS foot traffic of long wait lines to eat. I remembered the Clark Street Dog, and it was still there! The building is small with 1/2 restaurant and 1/2 bar but the sandwiches and fries are large!! I enjoyed a chicken sandwich and fries and... More

So we were walking away from the crowds around Wrigley and came across this place at about 11:00 PM. We had some burgers and fries and they were really quite good. The prices were very reasonable and the staff was pretty friendly.

the dogs are good but not the best. if you just have to have a Chicago dog before leaving Chicago stop in and have one. fries and dogs are fresh, hot and ok to eat.

Great late night food after a game or show at Wrigley. We had the Philly, and a Combo with Italian Sausage, Italian Beef and hot peppers. Everything was very good and made fresh. The fries were standard but didn't disappoint either. Would definitely eat here again.

Our food was served with very tough Italian beef and all our fries were cold. Usually a restaurant serves cold water in a disposable cup. They will charge you extra for a cup and probably extra for ice and the water. The day of my visit I was told the washrooms were not working when I asked the manager he... More

This customer visited us on Pride Parade day when over a million visitors descend to watch and celebrate Pride Parade. The amount of people that enter our facility that day overwhelmed our restroom facilities. The facilities remained closed until repairs could be made. We always make sure to work with the parade organizers and secure two portable toilets at the... More

A few of us stopped here on they way back from a Cubs game and we all had the Chicago Dog and a beer. Best hot dog I've ever had! I know...it's just a hot dog but you'll understand when you have one. Go check this place out! If you don't like dogs they have plenty of other things to... More

This place is about a mile south of Wrigley Field and is always packed with Cub fans. The restaurant and the bar are located together under one roof but you can't order alcohol at the restaurant order window. If you want a beer or any other drink you have to go into the bar to order it. The restaurant side... More
