The hot dog special is always a hit and the fries are fresh and hot. It's a casual friendly place where all are welcome. A good place for a fast lunch while working or students lunch hour, or just a stop for a good dog and fries.

Great place for a Not Fast, but Great lunch experience! Tired of Mac's, BK & the like? Give Sammy's a try. Lots of choices, Chicago Comfort Food at reasonable prices. Eat in or take out. On the same playing field as Portillo's. Open when you want it to be. Nothing bad to say about Sammy! Go Already!

Stopped and had my usual, a Gyro and Pizza Puff. Good food, good service, just as usual. This has always been one of my favorites to stop at. A must stop if you are in the area, you will not be disappointed!

I stopped here with my kids. They got hot dogs and fries. I got a beef sandwich. All was good and it was fast. The workers were ok. Not bad at all.

I've been here many times over the years. It has your typical Chicago hot dog stand menu but their burgers are pretty damn good. I've been tempted to try other items but the burger never lets me down. It's a business only, no nonsense place. Order, pay, leave happy. The staff is quiet but friendly but the food is good....

Ever since Portillo's sold out (in more sense than one), I've needed a go-to hot dog joint. Well, here it is! Vienna Hot Dogs, Rosen's buns, Chicken Gyros with honey mustard dressing and fantastic french fries. Service is fast, pleasant, and efficient; you can eat in the place if you like, although it isn't terribly large. They have a great... More

We Always have positive visits at Sammy's. Any place that has the owner standing at the register, and who greets you and encourages you to try certain items, is always a good sign. I would recommend the Italian sausage, although his Chicago style hot dogs are always great and his beef is a real sleeper menu item. It is juicy... More
