Yes you have to wait a but. Yes the ambiance is anything but nice, but wow the char cheddar burger is to die for. It literally does melt in your mouth, and that's no easy task for a burger. If your in the area of Des Plaines or the airport, make the trip.

We ordered burgers, the bacon burger was cooked perfect and the Swiss with BBQ was just as good. Ordered the loaded fries and they were great, loved the cheese sauce! Will come
Back if near by!

I love their Oreo shakes! Their beef is fabulous. The brothers are always running their business and its always the same...you don't mess with a good thing. Prepare to wait in line. You may be able to get a table outside to eat. Great value. Fresh food.

Best freaking burgers. I've eaten many burgers over the years in different parts of the world, no one can come even close with taste to Paradise Pup. These things are the best. Always juicy and full of flavor. Cheesburger will run you $5.80 with tax and these things fill you up. Highly recomend it

And what it is, is delicious! We ordered 8 items from the menu, and it cost $42 with tax. So for $5.25 an item, we were treated to bite after bite of perfectly cooked, wonderfully crafted, and succulent tastes that burger and dog lovers travel miles for. I'm not usually a fan of Merkt's Cheddar, but boy is it good on the char polish and the char burger. We love crinkle-cut fries. These are cooked perfectly, and the Merkt's if great on them too. The chicken sandwich is also very good, one of the best I've had. Get it with everything. The hot dog is a Vienna dog that is properly executed in the Chicago Style, right down to the celery salt. A lot of places cheat, Paradise Pup does not.

The wait was 35 minutes to get to the register on a Saturday afternoon at 3PM. The order was done in about 12 minutes from putting it in. The line never died down for the next hour. Plan accordingly. It is worth it!
