Taste the famous cuisine of our city at any of these highly recommended joints…
1. Hot Dog! There are some great options for encased meats and the famous Chicago Style Dog (yellow mustard, chopped white onion, neon green relish, tomato slices, kosher dill pickle spear, “sport peppers”, celery salt, on a sesame seed bun). We recommend our neighborhood Chicago Doghouse for their delicious gourmet take on hot dogs (also, get the frips, a cross between a french frie & a potato chip). Also, check out the famous Hot Doug’s which is notorious for long lines but most excellent hot dogs (they also serve duck fat fries on weekends). Avg. hot dog: $5.
Whether you’re in the market for a Chicago-style dog (pickles, sport peppers, mustard, onions, sweet relish & a dash of celery salt) or just a darn good hot dog, grab a bite at one or all these places:
Conveniently located near the Fullerton train station (a 5 minute walk from our hostel), this place knows how to prepare delicious hot dogs. The Chicago Doghouse has a vast & tasty specialty menu of encased meats. Also, we recommend their homemade chips known as “frips.”
