Some of us may be considered "snobs" when it comes to Chicago dogs. I regret that I am one of those snobs. I expect the cosmic green relish, the sport peppers, and a hot dog that "pops" when I bite into it. They come pretty close to hitting all the marks, but don't quite get there. It's not bad, and...

As a Chicago girl I was hoping I found a home run. Not quite! Had the beef with peppers. Pretty good I would recommend. Chicago style dig cold and not much better than Sonic Chicago dog. Fries are crinkle cut which could be upgraded and help the meal if the were fresh cut!

First time eating here. I ordered the Chicago Hot Dog, fries, and diet coke. I have never been outside of the Chicago area and got a good Chicago Hot Dog. First time. Their Chicago Hot Dog was as good as anyone I had ever had in Chicago. It was great. I was really surprised. Fries were good too. The restaurant... More

I've only eaten in the restaurant a couple of times. We usually order pickup because its just across the street from my home. Our favorite is the deep dish pizza. The pizza is huge, with tons of cheese and a tasty sauce. So much cheese you could choke on it - just the way I like it. They also have... More

If you're looking for a Chicago hot dog, or hot beef, or Chicago style pizza - THIS IS THE PLACE!! Easy to find on Polaris Pkwy - closer to 23 than 71. In Oak Creek shopping center - N side of Polaris.

Well here's the good news...the good news is that the food was not bad...it was pretty good. However, the bad news is that the deep dish does not taste like a Chicago style deep dish. The crust was very hard and the cheese slid off the pizza too fast. The cheese was not binded to the bed of the pizza.The... More

Love visiting Wholly Joe's for lunch!! A Mini Joe dipped and some of their amazing fries is hard to beat! At dinner time I'm all about the pizza! Although I recommend calling ahead for the deep dish.

Being a former Chicago restaurant I heard about this place and wanted to give it a shot. My buddies and I look for non chain restaurants to eat at when we get together in our motorcycles. Last night we had the deep dish pizza, Italian beef, and hot dogs. Everything was excellent. The staff was very friendly. I had my... More

Love the beef sandwiches. If you have time to wait deep dish is amazing. I advise calling ahead. Dogs are out of this world. Really can't go wrong
