Outstanding selection of salad bar choices. Fantastic hot dogs done in a variety of ways and incredible hamburgers with all the choice fixings. Many other lunch and dinner options all equally great. All made to order and prepared quickly. The seating area is large and always kept clean. Staff is friendly.

Michaels is a family restaurant in downtown highland park. I think the chopped salad is the best ever. You pick all your own toppings so there are no surprises in the salad. It's a great place to take kids as the menu has something for everyone.

The biggest menu of any hot dog stand I have seen. Top custom salads are delicious. My favorites include: Buffalo burger, Jumbo char dog and cheddar fries.

I love Michael's! Having grown up in the north suburbs but now living in the southwest, this is the place that I tell my family to meet me at when I get into town. The have grilled hot dogs, steamed hot dogs, salads, sandwiches and something for everyone... even a gluten free vegetarian!!!
Everything about Michael's is great! I can hardly wait to eat there again.

Love going to Michael's for an italian beef and fries. Personally, Char Dog was not my favorite. I'm more of a standard Chicago hot dog person. Counter staff is amazing memorizing orders and I never saw them make a mistake. Always friendly and always good. Love that part of Highland Park. Sometimes hard to park near the restaurant during busy lunch and dinner, but absolutely worth it.
