“HOT DOG!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Chicago style hot dogs are done right here as well as their Italian beef sandwiches. Also try the Windy City weenie wagon on Bluemont near the nursery. Both are excellent. A huge thank you for bringing Vienna Beef dogs to Loudoun County!

“Great Italian Beef”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

After reading about Windy City Red Hots on TA, we decided to try it. Italian beef sandwiches are one of our favorites and I make them occasionally. We ordered the Italian beef with sweet peppers and provolone cheese to go. They packed the au jus on the side for us. We wrapped the sandwich in foil and reheated it in the oven that evening and it was moist and delicious, like it had just been made. This is a large sandwich, so we decided to split and it was enough for two of us. The staff is very friendly and you get service with a smile.

“When you want a good hot dog and fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Talked to the owner one night, and he is originally from Chicago and missed having a place to go for a Chicago hot dog, so he started Windy City Red Hots. They have bratwurst, sausage, hot dog, and other sandwich choices on the menu. We have come back repeatedly for the classic Chicago style hot dogs (which are excellent) and fries. Service has been consistently friendly. You can get bottled micro-brew beer to drink, as well as soft drinks. Small, very casual restaurant where you order at the counter, sit down, and they bring out your food. Customers often have their children there or are meeting with friends.

“A little bit of Chicago in Leesburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

If you miss the typical Chicago Hot Dog/Italian Beef corner stand, this will make you homesick. Chicago style dogs, polish sausage, and Italian beef sandwiches. Even have tamales Chicago style! Loved it!
