I enjoy the food here even though the mac and cheese is expensive, the Carolina dog with pulled pork is amazig. *WARNING* They don't care about customer feedback as they never responsed to my email about this issue. ********* Remember to watch when they make your food! The cashier went back and cooked without changing her gloves!

It wasn't bad, but it certainly wasn't high quality food. French fries tasted good but were mushy and not a good texture. I got the chili cheese dog which had minimal chili and generally did not have much flavor. The best parts of my experience were the $1 Shock Top drafts and friendly and courteous manager/owner.

I ordered the Ruben Dog, beef dog with kraut, thousand island dressing and melted cheese on it. I got the combo so it came with fresh cut fries (at least that is what the size behind the counter said). The fries reminded me of the ones you get at the fair...very good with a little vinegar on them. The Ruben... More

That's on me. I should hsve just ordered 2 dogs & doctored them up just the way I like. I got a... More

My first visit to Chicago Dogs and I ordered a burger! It was very good, but a bit overpriced and did not include french fries which were nice and crisp. The french fries were delicious and they offer an amazing variety of hot sauces to try.

I'm from Chicago, and know Chicago dogs. While theirs aren't authentic Vienna dogs, they're still really good, and they get the little stuff right, such as poppy seed buns and Chicago trimmings. I'm a basic guy, however, and opt for the Fat Frank with mustard. It's 1/4 pound, and really good. I was just there with my ladyfriend, a 2-for-1... More

A locally owned hot dog, hamburger and other types of sandwiches place near Oak Hill in Scarborough. If you like a Chicago style dog and the thin crispy french fries this is the place. The friendly staff and frequent buyer card keep the regulars coming back. Not my favorite place but good for a quick lunch. A car wash is... More

I literally just ate here and my first thought walking in, is "I wonder why no one else is here and the staff is literally standing here waiting for a customer" on a Friday at dinner time. In a big city... I guess I thought I'd get this scrumptious awesome huge hot dog with tastey fries. Silly me. To sum... More

These hot dogs are great. I love the chili cheese dogs and the fries are awesome also. I've been coming here for about 10 years and will keep coming back.
