“On a quest for a good hot dog?”

Our family is on a hot dog stand quest - to hit unique or recommended stands in the US. While our last Chicago hot dog experience left us extremely disappointed - Gold Coast redemmed Chicago as a place to get a good dog. It is not a very attractive looking and stand but you get a really good Chicago dog at a fair price. My children would like to point out that you do need to use a restroom prior to arriving at this place - but I believe that would be our only complaint. This was a really good Chicago dog (we did char - better than steamed) and worth the walk for us.

We really enjoyed the Chicago style dog here. Grilled with mustard, onion, peppers, pickle, celery salt....and really large orders of fries. Very reasonable prices. We would definitely return here the next time we visit Chicago.

When you're in Chicago, you kind of have to have at least one Chicago style dog! Take a couple of bites, it grows on you.

nothing fancy here but a good location behind Macy's on State St. I think it is one of the best hot dogs in Chicago and great fries as well- good value
