    ***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...

    Mustard only. The best hotdog in the city. Order with everything, because it excludes the tomatoes and the pickle. One will fill you, two will bust you. Fries are excellent as well. Cheap, A+ meal.

    My tip only posted half what I typed. I get my hotdog plain and use Heinz ketchup that I take when I know we are going to stop in.

    Up there for one of the best hot dogs you can get in Chicago. Fries are cut and fried in front of you and then stacked on top of your dog. Everything's delicious. Don't try to pay with a card!

    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.
