I kept passing this off-the-beaten-path dining destination so many times, always commenting that I need to finally give it a try. After all, I am devout hot dog/sausage lover, so after finally finding out what "Destination Dogs" had to offer I decided to stop in...More

Overall a good place to hang out to have a couple beers and experience different hot dogs according to different places. Good atmosphere. Bartender and staff were friendly. Wish the dogs had more meat. I felt overwhelmed with bread.

Went with a large group from work as we heard about all the different types of dogs, meats, and toppings. The selection is very good so we were excited to try it. The food isn't bad, it's just not the wow we were hoping for.

Wow. I am a Chicago native and am no stranger to the beauty and wonder of a tasty sausage. And if you're in the "I love encased meats camp", then this is the Destination for you (pun intended). The menu has about 25 different selections...More

They have been in their bigger restaurant for years now, so most people only know of that, but there is something missing from when they first started out and were at their old location. This is hot dogs, so I don't really need a wait...More

Absolutely! My friend who always asks to go here is a vegetarian. They have a loft area upstairs that could easily fit a large group but as others have said I would definitely make a reservation.
