Coney Island: What's The Deal With This Place?

dirwuf | Jul 28, 2010 08:39 PM

As a newly transplanted Chicagoan, I took my first visit to Coney Island today; my family and I had just finished our requisite Nathan's when we looked across the street to see... "Big Al's Chicago Hot Dog King".

The place was shut down.

What's the story? Was it/Is it any good? Did they just heat up frozen White Castles? Could someone pick a worse spot in the universe to open a Chicago hot dog stand?

Someone enlighten me.
