    If you want to experience a little bit of Chicago, come here. Stand outs are: Italian Beef, Chicago hot dogs, and most amazing fries. Very friendly and attentive service.

    I love everything about this place. The fries are excellent, the burgers are perfect, the employees are nice, the music is superb. If you get a chance sit on the patio and watch life go by. A++

    Make sure you like Chicago hot dogs before you come here. They do them well with all the fixings. Space is wonderfully themed, food was great and I loved the bacon burger better than the hot dog.

    Order the Chicago Dog! A Vienna beef frank, is laid in a poppy seed-dusted soft potato roll, then topped with onions, tomatoes, nuclear green relish, a dill pickle spear, and celery salt. Yum! Read more

    A large chocolate cake shake is practically a meal by itself, best bet is to order it after you eat at the dessert counter near the entrance.
