I have been to Gene and Judes and I find it okay, but my favorite Hot Dog stands are:
1.Jimmys on Grand and Pulaski
2.Parky's on Roosevelt Rd. in Oak Park
3.Peep's Hot Dogs on Route 12 in Arl. Heights
4.Hastee Tastee--10 years ago!
Many chowhounds will disagree with me but everyone has there own taste! Another opinion I have is Johnnies Beef is about 5th on my list. I will take Buano Beef, Romas, Mr.Beef or Lukes on 12 ahead of Johnnies.
Hey, Eat where you enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!
