This little rectangular, white building with big yellow signs near the Sheridan El stop on Irving Park Road is popular with baseball fans headed to nearby Wrigley Field. Serving loaded Chicago-style hot dogs and Polish sausages, Byron’s Hot Dogs has had the honor of making its hot dogs at a White House picnic in 2011. The Vienna-beef dogs come in small, jumbo, and Dogzilla sizes, and there are 11 toppings such as cucumbers, peppers, onions, and tomato. Fries can be ordered with cheese or tossed with celery salt in a paper bag.
