Chicago Dogs has moved from Route 1 in Scarborough Me. to 671 Main St. in South Portland Me. and is housed in an annex to the Howard Johnson's Hotel. Upon entering to you're right is a small but very comfortable pub. To you're left is the more traditional dining room area. The pub consists of 4 high tables with 4... More

This business has moved out of town. This was a fast food business, It did not impress me. I would not recommend this to anyone

We had visited Chicago Dogs when they used to be in Scarborough. Now they have moved to South Portland, connected to Howard Johnson's, if I'm remembering right. This move was extremely unwise. The location has paint spattered all over the floor, and the seats are covered in stains. It looks extremely dirty. I ordered an Italian Beef sandwich, that was... More

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

I pass this place all the time. I love hot dogs. But, this was my first time eating there! I brought my daughter after buying a groupon. I went for one of their speciality dogs- the Chicago dog. 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
