    Old school roadside hot dog stand. They don't make the traditional Chicago dog, but order one with the works. The fries are great here.

    hot dog was not that unusual nor was it as great. Customer service was good. They could use a better bun to hold things together, as well as a better tasting dog. Was disappointed

    No seats. No ketchup. No pretense. No nonsense. That is the Gene & Jude’s mantra since 1946, and it must be abided. This stand is known for one, and only one, thing: a hot dog. Read more

    Great dogs with fries on top. Ask for extra ketchup with your hot dog, you'll make the employees day!

    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.

    If you want to take an out-of-towner visiting Chicago out of town for a Chicago style type hot dog, this is the place.

    Watching them cut a whole potato with the skin on then frying it for your order of fries is really tight!

    Are you kidding? Stand in line and wait for a hot dog and fries and pay with cash only? Yes!! That's how it works. Best "dirty water dogs" anywhere, got that, "anywhere"! It's da best&fries r fresh!

    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 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...
