I ate my first Chicago hot dog here and it was delicious! They had a great deal where you got a large hot dog, fries, and a soda for $9 - what a deal! Definitely check it out if you are in the area.

I have only tried the Char Brat at this place. I have it smothered with onion and mustard. I enjoy this brat so much I've never tried anything else! Love the brats every single time!

Not a fan of the Chicago dog, there is just to much going on here. This place was fine, but I just didn't like the dog.

Service was fast and friendly, pickles were fresh, the dogs were warm but over cooked. Classic hot dog Chicago style, probably won't eat there again, but had to try a Chicago classic. When in Rome...

Trying to imitate a true Chicago Dog. Don't bother. Not a Vienna Dog, slice pickle? Really? One slice if a tomato. Sorry, 25 years ago, this place was the place to get a dog, sadly not anymore.
