Until yesterday I had to mail order good Italian beef. No more! Great sandwich. Kids had good dogs. No ketchup. We'll be back soon. Great tastes of home.

I was thrilled to find a Chicago Red Hot shop right in the heart of Leesburg! They serve a variety of popular Chicago treats, including Italian Beef Sandwiches, but the best to me are the red hots--great hot dogs, served on a poppy seed bun, loaded with tomato slices, mustard, chopped onions, psychedelic green pickle relish, sports peppers and a...

Our Windy City Red Hots dog and the italian sausage were okay. This was the first time there for us and apparently you have to request mustard, relish and onion toppings to get them. The order taker did not offer or mention them, and only ketchup was available at a customer stand. Those condiments would have really improved the taste... More

This is the closest to real Chicago food that I have found in the area! It's delicious, my only complaint is that they don't steam the poppyseed buns! They are always really nice and so helpful!!

Rolled in on a bike and saw no safe place to park the bike. Cashier showed us a patio out back which was perfect. And the tables on the patio were great as well. I ordered a Chicago Style Polish and Cheese Dog mix, i.e., chili cheese toppings on the Chicago Style Polish. The combo came with fries and a... More

This trip to Leesburg, we decided to have hot dogs. My wife loves there dogs, personally I think Sabrett from NYC are the best. Anyway, these were good and so were the fries. It not an expensive meal and with kids it's a winner. Give it a try. Enjoy!

So, I wanted a good hot dog...ever since Haute Dog in Purcellville closed there is nowhere to get an awesome dog. So, I hit the Google and this place came up as number 2 with number 1 being the Food Truck for this place. Off we went. I was surprised at the size of the place. It is tiny. I... More

The cheesy beef was even better than Portillo's. This was a great representation of a Chicago staple!

Any place that serves great, hot, delicious fries and Bell's two-hearted pale ale wins. Hot dogs were good, too, and while the place is small, they tolerate kids and picky eaters.

My husband and I really enjoyed our lunch here. I had been yearning for a italian beef sandwich for since we left Chicago years ago, and my husband will eat Chicago hot dogs any time he can. Both were wonderful, although I like to dip my sandwich, and the cups of broth they provided were too small. I used 2... More
