When it comes to hot dogs, Chicagoans don't kid around. Here are my picks for some of the top dogs in the city.
The inventive sausages may draw you in, but the classics will keep you coming back. The bratwurst is a nearly perfect sausage.
Budacki's is where I ate my first Chicago-style hot dog, so I have a soft spot in my heart for it. It's a pretty excellent rendition and the great fries don't hurt either.
Great little stand in Lakeview - the bratwurst is top notch.
A go-to spot for hot dogs of all styles. It's easy to walk past it, so keep an eye out.
The housemade hot dog is served with condiments on the side so you can dress it to your liking (tip: put ALL OF THEM on). Also the butterscotch miso milkshake is to-die for, and there is a spiked hot chocolate list.
