    I had a char dog and plain fries. Char dog was great, fries were not.

    LOVE the cheddar fries and char dogs. HATE the thinly veiled racism from the Lincoln Park bros. Have heard the n word from way too many white people here

    Do not get cheddar on anything. The char choices are good and typical of Chicago dogs. Be ready to get insulted and the staff insists on tips. Don't make them mad.

    The hot dogs!!! Hamburgers are delicious. Fries serve waay more than 2 people. 2 adults and three hungry kids were happily fed by the French fries.

    Hot dogs, soda, fries, maybe a milkshake"-", I love the burgers though, hands down best!

    They have mediocre food, and the women are rude...but if you didn't know that before you walked in then what the hell are you going here for in the first place?

    While the staff give as good as they get, it's unfortunate that a lot of the visitors seem to think it's acceptable to use racial epithets in place of actual well thought out comedic 'sass'.

    Simon Knaggs · February 24
  • Colin Y.

    Come here if you enjoy racially-charged exploitation and abuse. The dogs are adequate, but the bad taste in your mouth will be from the customers.

    Get some sass with your chat dog, fun place

    It's lame to watch a bunch of Lincoln Park yuppies drop n bombs at the staff here, but if you go outside of drinking hours, you can get the best cheese fries in the city.

    Food is average but great for late-night. It's more about the experience but be prepared when you are about to order. Don't forget to ask for a chocolate shake!!

    Cheddar Fries: fresh-cut fries covered in glorious Merkt's cheddar. Even when the cheese gets cold, it's still good.

    Banter was decent, but the food was disgusting. Steam cheddar dog ad fries were cold and stale. Don't waste your money.

    Come during the day, when the staff is too hungover to yell at you. And get it Chicago-style. Changed my world.
