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.

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.

This is the best Char dog in the civilized world. Definitely unlike other boiled in water dogs, and get the Chicago dog, and don't you dare ask for ketchup. Onion rings are also very good.
