A new fast food outlet opened in the Green Tree Center on Immokalee called Taste of Chicago. As a native Chicago person, I miss some of the specialties I always took for granted. Vienna makes the hot dog of choice for most of the stands back home and they are served here at Taste of Chicago, along with Italian Beef, Sausage, Polish, etc. There are a couple other places in the area serving Vienna hot dogs, however this is the only one offering poppy seed buns. I thoroughly enjoyed my dog. They come with homemade potatoe chips or fries. Both are respectable.
I also had an Italian Beef with giardinera. Imo, Scala produced the best beef in Chicago. The Vienna beef here I believe is prepackaged as individual servings and dipped in juice, served on a roll(which unfortunately isn't the benchmark-Gonnella). The sandwich was ok, not anywhere near the standards of Johnny's or Mr. Beef.
I would return to sample a few of the other items.
