Chicago Hot Dogs

Marian | Jul 23, 2005 01:52 PM

Me and my little circle have recently begun really re-appreciating the importance of a "Oh my God that's good," authentic Chicago Dog and have since been on the search for some suggestions for new dogs to try. (We are complete amateurs, of course, and shamefully some of our "search" has been conducted after midnight on a Saturday night....We'd like to take our search a little more seriously if possible....) Our most recent trips to Byrons and Weiner Circle have left us disappointed (though they're very good, please don't attack!), and we have found that Wicker Park's Underdog is just not the same in the light of day (a cruel joke....). I've heard countless wonderful things about Hot Doug's (yeah, we're a little slow on the uptake sometimes) and we made an attempt last week, only to find it closed on Sundays. We still have to make it out to SuperDawg on Devon, and I grew up on Parky's, Tasty Dog, and Gene & Judes. So, all that said, if anyone has any other suggestions of damn good Chicago dogs (you know, with all the works), we're just trying to "expand our horizons" for good dogs! Thanks!
