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

We really enjoyed our Chicago dogs, French fries and gyro at this neighborhood joint. Generous portions for the very modest prices.

We wanted to grab something to eat after watching the blue man group and decided on this spot. What a great choice tasty, affordable and great customer service. The Chili Cheese Fries were great. Definitely will check them out the next time.

Took the family to walk about Wrigley Field on our first shot at Chicago. Of course we wanted a Chicago dog and this place had the best Chili Cheese Dog I've had since my college days. It did not disappoint and the kids loved it as well.

Although other hot dogs places in Chicago get a lot more press, this place does the Chicago style hot dog just as well. The interior is nothing to look twice at, but the food is good, and it has more of the feel of a place that locals would eat outside of the downtown core.

The Chicago dogs are authentic and the ambience in the restaurant is clean but very fast foodish! The fries are... More
