Living in Chicagoland, I am pretty familiar with Chicago dogs. This spot comes close with a couple of adjustments necessary to call it a true Chicago dogand earn an excellent rating. Missing? The poppy seed bun, a jumbo Vienna dog ... not just a small hot dog. Got the relishes correct, including the pickle and peppers, but no sauerkraut. The fries were hot and tasty. Ordered beef sandwiches for later. The buns were very good and enjoyed the pepperoncini and au jus. No cheese, but didn't ask for it, so don't know if it is available upon asking. Thought the beef could have had a bit more flavor, but we ate them much later in the evening, so don't know if flavor would have been there had we eaten them immediately. Lots of Chicago sports memorabilia on the walls, and the lady taking the order was very friendly. It's worth a stop, if you are craving the flavor of a Chicago dog.

A locals spot for sure. Authentic Chicago dogs with krinkle cut fries. It was a tasty lunch. If you're hungrier, that amount probably won't be enough. I kind of thought that the value wasn't that good for what you get, even though it was a well-made and tasty, no frills bite.

I lived in Chicago for 2 years back in the '70's and one thing I always missed was the hot dogs and Italian beef. Seaside Dawgs has made it possible to still enjoy both without having to go back to Chicago. Great prices and good food...you can't beat it. So if you go to the Keys you have got to stop and see Jim, the owner and Roni, the lady that will take your order. Tell them Nancy sent you! You won't regret it.

While waiting to go into the Turtle hospital, we spied this Hotdog restaurant a couple doors down and decided to have a quick lunch. Best hotdog I've had in a very long time. Jim, the Owner and cook, steams the hotdogs which keeps in the wonderful Vienna beef flavor. Then he loads it up with mustard, green relish, onions, tomato slices, a dill pickle and sport peppers and tops it off with celery salt. The kids had chili dogs and asked for seconds. Great place -- great price -- great people. Will stop in next time we are here.

Very cheap and real Chicago style dogs. Also great beef, good prices. The French fries aren't that great skip them and order another dog or sausage.
