Murphy’s Red Hots

In the mid 1980s, Bill Murphy opened a hotdog stand in Lakeview to put himself through architect school. Soon after, though, he realized his calling to serve some of the finest split and grilled Vienna Beef links in the Windy City. His small shop is now located in an older home with limited seating, but since it’s close to Wrigley Field, most diners just grab one on the go. Branch out from the usual toppings, and take your dog on a “walk through the garden,” adding mustard, relish, onion, pickle, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, celery salt and sport peppers.
