This iconic suburban Chicago hot dog stand has remained virtually unchanged since opening in 1950. The menu is simple: tamales, fresh-cut french fries and Chicago-style hot dogs: steamed all-beef Vienna franks topped with mustard, onions, relish, Sport peppers and a healthy helping of glistening fries. Just don’t ask for ketchup for the dog. In classic Chicago tradition, it’s forbidden.
