You won't find a better Chicago-style hot dog than the char dog at Poochie's. I've tried dogs all over the area and none could beat Poochie's. The French fries are also excellent. Hand-cut, twice-fried and made to order, they are truly outstanding. A Poochie's Chicago dog and fries is one of the best meals in the area. I drove 45 minutes out of my way to visit and won't hesitate to do so again.

This sandwich is outstanding. Crisp, garlicky, fatty. Perfectly balanced. Served on fresh French bread with sweet grilled onions. It is a bit expensive, but very worth it. The inside is bright and comfy. Has a lot of tv's though, if that bugs you.

Delicious cheddar burger!! And those fries....I only wanted to eat a few off my son's order. I wound up getting another order and adding cheddar to the fries. Amazing!!!

Look around at other patrons when you are there. Most are obese. I can see why! This food is totally unhealthy, but man, it's SO delicous!!!

I don't see what makes this place special whatsoever. I love good french fries and there's were cold,old,and,dried-out. Hot dogs were nothing special either. Totally OVERATED and OVERPRICED!!!!!!!!!!

Great dogs, polishes, and more. Don't miss the fresh-cut cheese fries made with Merkt's cheddar.
