    Got the Italian beef and cheese in a croissant. Sandwich was tasty but poorly constructed. Be ready to eat with a knife and fork!

    The hot dog is served any way you like it, but go for traditional Chicago style: topped with mustard, relish, chopped onions, sliced red tomatoes, a pickle spear, and sport peppers.

    One of those rare places that's got a lot of tourists but is nonetheless really fun. I liked the grilled sausage more than the Chicago dog, personally.
