fresh & funky

Chicago's love for encased meats is well-documented. This city is pretty much the home of the hot dog. But this Northwest Side institution takes hot dog loving to a whole other level. Sure, you can play it safe and get the standard Chicago dog, which is as good as you'll find in the city. But you've got to at least attempt some of the more adventurous menu items such as Foie Gras and Sauternes Duck Sausage with Truffle Aioli, or the duck fat fries on Fri. and Sat.

This is my favorite place to eat in the city! I go there whenever I'm back in town. Doug is a culinary genius and all-around great guy. Skip all the normal dogs and get one of his rotating daily specials and some tots, or the duck fat fries if you're there on Friday or Saturday. Don't let the line put you off, it's totally worth it. If you're on a tight schedule, though, you can call into the kitchen and place an order for pickup, which is ready in about 15 minutes.
