Reviewed October 18, 2012

Two lines one for hot dogs and burgers and another one for fresh salads and stuffed potatoes both can get long quickly for very good reasons but the wait is never long. And great frozen yogurt just around the side of the counter with all the toppings. Bring the kids but leave the pretentious in-laws and just enjoy the food. Kids menu is both healthy and tasty and if there is a party you could see clowns Or otherm

“Highland Park Institution”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

When we were first moving to Highland Park from Michigan our real estate agent told us to take the kids to Michael's because it is a Highland Park institution. She was right. If I had to pick one restaurant to represent Highland Park it would be Michael's.

I love their buffalo burgers. Grilled and loaded with your choice of cheese, ketchup, mustard, pickles, tomatoes, and grilled onions. The servings of french fries are huge. I would like them to start serving sweet potato fries though. The Chinese chicken wrap is good. I also love the Debbie's favorite salad but don't them chop this one, it gets too mushy.

The line can can be slow and long at peak hours. You can phone in your order though. So if you have the forethought to do so I would recommend it.

If you are looking for dinner, they close early....so not a late night place

“Best Polish Sausages”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

This local "hot dog joint" has great food of all kinds from salads to hot dogs to Italian beef to......, but my favorite is the grilled Polish sausage. To make it even better, I order it on French bread, which is big enough to hold all of the "stuff" I like to put on it. Best Polish sausage around!!

“Highland Park Staple”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

If your in the suburbs of Chicago and you need your chardog fix, this place is a must. Show up early or you will be waiting in line. Everytime I roll into town, I have to go. Rumor has it the other food there is good, but I get the chardog everytime. Add an order of well done cheese fries to compliment the meal.
