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.
