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

There are a lot of good choices, with good fresh toppings. The service is always fast and friendly and the place is clean. The place is a great stop for a fast meal, and the prices are very reasonable. WCRH should continue its success because they do things right, and the food is really good. It's worth finding out for... More

I love this place. Whenever I feel like getting some good hot dogs, I come here. This is a great hot dog place. Order the Chicago dog with everything. It's like eating a sandwich. This is a very few place where they still carry RC Cola. Get a good dog and a RC Cola on a hot day, then it... More

I travel to Chicago a lot for work and the dogs that Windy City serves rivals those in Chicago. The ingredients are excellent and the dogs are appropriately messy. Everything is prepared fresh and the staff is very friendly. My only complaint is that it is a tight space, making it hard to find seating sometimes -- but I do... More
