    Natural casing hotdogs perfectly prepared by the guys who make them.

  • What's Good Here

    If you're in town, be sure to try a real Chicago style hot dog here, then head to Al's for an Italian Beef sandwich & Lou Malnati's for deep dish.

    If you love Vienna Beef hot dogs, and you should, then you might as well go straight to the source. The cafe in the factory sells a great fully-loaded hot dog.

    Ask for the "Homeless Bill" hot dog. It's a special hot dog, grilled with cigarette butts, and garnished with broken glass.
