    Gene and Jude's hot dogs have that classic Vienna Beef snap. It's the epitome of the Chicago-style hot dog. They've recently re-opened after last month's floods forced them to close. Read more

    Hot dogs with mustard, onions, relish, and sport peppers. And tamales! Don't ask for ketchup, even for your fries, because they don't have any. This place is a timeless establishment for Chicago.

    The best guilty pleasure!!! The hot dog buns are warm, there is snap to the hot dog, and the fries are made from fresh potatoes. So worth blowing your calorie count for the day!!!

    Of course they don't have ketchup! Hot dogs....in Chicago. Come on, man! The hot dog (or double if you dare) with fries doesn't have ketchup, because it doesn't NEED ketchup. Get a tamale too! ;)

    ***CASH-ONLY***. The fries were good, dogs were okay. Fries on a dog? Good idea. I'm not crazy about this place, will drop in if I'm nearby and have cash on me...
