Great introduction to Chicago Hot Dogs! very authentic and well regarded by true Chicagoans


Chicago Style hot Dog
1-Mild yellow mustard
2.Beef Hot Dog
3. Fresh chopped onion
4. NEON colored Relish
5. Kosher Dill Spear
6.two tomato wedges
7. a few sport peppers
8.a dash of celery salt
9. a steamed poppy seed bun

back in the depression street vendors in Chicago invented this delicious hot meal on a bun!
it cost just a nickel - these Vendors thrived - thus was born the Chicago Hot Dog!

and the interior decorations are celebrating Chicago's Gangster Era - complete with life size Gangster dummy's & memorabilia

a full salad bar and healthy menu is also available

go early or plan on a little waiting -
