Parky's Hot Dogs

Phil | Jan 23, 200403:41 PM     10

Went to Parky's hot dogs on Harlem Ave. the other day. Big mistake! Is it me or have they changed their brand of hot dogs? They were horrible! They never used your typical Vienna Beef/Best Kosher etc. beef dogs but a good, flavorful chicken,pork type. I beleive they used Kahn's a Hillshire Farm product. Anyway the ones now look, smell, taste horrible. Weird color. Texture like rubber. Just awful! This was my first trip here in about 5 years. Have they changed owners? What about Parky's on Roosevelt Rd. are they still open? Parky's was one of my all time favorites for years. I would come all the way from the far south burbs for them and their (still great) fries. If Parky's has changed their dogs and or owners could some one here give me a lead for some other non beef hot dog stand in the Chicago area?

Thanks
Phil
