Downtown Dogs 800 N Rush, behind the Park Hyatt just off Chicago Ave. or any hole-in-the-wall. Do not go to a sit down restaurant for a Chicago hot dog. And it has to be a Vienna Dog and the chopped pickles have to be neon green.

Assuming you have a car:

Near OHare-Gene and Judes in River Grove and Superdawg on Devon

In Chicago near the expressway-Vienna Beef Factory Store on Fullerton and Damen. Maybe Hot Doug's, but the wait is a killer.

A couple of places in Skokie a couple miles east of I-94 on Dempster-Poochies and Herms

South of the Loop off I90/94-Jims Original

Unfortunately the OP is asking about Chicago and Gene & Jude's is in River Grove, 17 miles outside of downtown Chicago.

OP also asked about Great Lakes area. We're assuming he/she will have a car.

I would pick one on a corner near wherever you happen to be at lunchtime. It's something you get at a corner joint, not plan a special excursion around.

Another place on the way between Chicago and Great Lakes is Irvings on Lake Street in Wilmette, just east of I 94.
