What a way to be introduced to Chicago style hot dog. Went there on recommendation of a local so that boosted my confidence. Downtown Dogs did not disappoint. Small and cozy. Embodied a small food eatery in the big city. Try them!

Visiting relatives with family and we toured downtown Chicago. I HAD to have a Chicago dog because all I've ever known was NJ/NY dogs. This was one for the books! Served up quick, we sat outside at their 'little patios.' Really good. Would definitely recommend this place.!

Peggy wanted to try this odd concoction in Chicago so we settled on the Downtown Dog. It was everything it was supposed to be: black poppy seed bun, neon relish, beef dog, pickle, pickled peppers, tomato. It doesn't sound very appetizing, but somehow it works! We both really liked it. The service was quick, we sat outside and enjoyed the buzz of the city.

As a European, you can get quite enough of the odd dogs you can buy on almost every streetcorner in the US. Did you reach that point, or getting there?
Go here, they make em like they're meant to be: tasty like you never had em!

Our group of 5 ordered from Downtown Dogs on 2 different nights from Pippin's and Streeter's. Italian beef was good, but the sliders and fries were awesome! When you want tasty and inexpensive, Downtown Dogs is your place!
