OUT OF BUSINESS!!! Dispute being featured on Anthony Bourdain's show, they failed. That's what happens when you don't take Amex!
Really enjoyed their dogs. Its sad to see them go
RIP. Everything was delicious.
Gourmet dogs are the best!
Last day. Ordered 8 different things with my lunch partner. Loved 5, liked 2, only 1 that I didn't enjoy. Those are some good odds. Glad we made the trek/wait before it closes at the end of the week.
The "Duck Fat" fries are a must. Can't go wrong with the special dog of the day.
Big fan of the Everything on the normal dogs. Celebrity special and foie gras also quite good. Come at 9:30 and save yourself 2 hours in the line
It's the second to last week, expect lines for your hot dogs, even at 9am on Tuesday.
Tried 6 and I recommend the Foie Gras, the Alligator, and the Rattlesnake. 6 hot dogs cut in 2 worked well for 2 hungry girls.
Too bad they are closing
There are no tricks to beating the lines anymore. Ever since Doug announced he is closing they have been insane. Be prepared to wait . . . a long time.
My favorite sausage stand in the world. Gonna miss this place
Come here before 10/3/14 or don't come here at all. Bring your appetite and maybe an AED.
Order in a tapas style if you go with a big group. Duck fat fries are a must however the Foie Gras isn't for everyone. The Dog and Bo Derek were my fav along with the special BBQ Dog
Hot dougs are so good they ruined hot dogs for me. Ill never find another one this good again
Best corn dog I've ever had. Love the specials. So sad it's closing.
Didn't love my gourmet dog: drove an hour, waited 2.5 hrs, drove 1.25 hours to get home. Got it off my bucket list, was fun - I wish I just ordered a regular old hot dog
Make sure you arrive BY 4 PM. They DO cut the line and I watched a ton of people get turned away.
By far the best hot dog, sausage, corn dog and 3 hour line experience you'll ever have. Enjoy it while you still can.
fire dog and cheese fries
Come here before they close for good! Cash only, their specialty dogs are AWESOME.
At the legend before it leaves
Foie gras and Sauternes sausage is a must order. Hurry, get there before they close in October!!!
this place is a joke and everyone who stands in the line is a joke too. if you are from out of town its okay as long as you take a bus there or something.
this weekend, buy duck fat from treasure island, buy potatoes, fry.
you can call your order and pick it up.
Get there before October because they are closing for good. Be prepared to stand in line but it is sooo worth it!
Go on the weekend to get the duck fat fries. Be prepared to wait in line though.
They will make a ripper (a deep fried dog where the skin rips open) if you ask
Fantastic hot dogs! But they close for good on October 3rd, so don't miss them. Get there well before they open, you can wait multiple hours to get seated if you wait until midday to arrive.
If you're by Door 31, your wait is about 2.5 hours
Monday afternoon - not worth the wait.
Duck Fat Fries......😍
"Permanent Vacation" starts October 4. Enjoy while you can.
Without a doubt one of Chicago's best and most unique restaurants. Wait in the line and order more than you think you need.
Shrimp n grit is the best.
Cash only. Pretty overpriced for a hotdog...I wouldn't recommend this if you're from Chicago.
Definitely worth waiting for. They don't take debit but they will do delicious.
I spent 4 hrs of my life on Hot Doug's and regret nothing even though it was 37 degrees in May. L: grilled Paul Simonon w/Portuguese Linguiça toppings. R: fried/grilled Paul Simonon w/everything.
I've done a survey. 68% of the customers here chew with their mouths wide open.
Hot Doug's, is closing permanently on Oct. 3, owner Doug Sohn confirmed today (May 7, 2014). Get in here while you can!
FYI this place officially closes on 10/4.
We went later in the afternoon on a Friday and the wait was less than 30 minutes
Look up the menu on your phone...they update it daily and I don't want to see you wavering with Doug in your sights.
Getting a regular dog is a rookie mistake. Get a haute dog and see what the place is all about.
Chicago's Best one
Yediğim en iyi hot doug :) öfff
Closed from dec 23rd to jan 7th.. :(
Specials are updated on hotdougs.com every day. Check out the list while you're standing in line outside!
