Go List: Chicago

Slide 6 of 10

Hot Doug's

Doug Sohn's joint is the perfect place for anyone who wants a taste of the city's hot dog history, or simply a fun, cheap meal. Out-of-towners can order the classic Chicago dog—topped with condiments like green relish and a pickle spear—while locals try more innovative creations. We loved: Rabbit sausage with mustard-garlic goat's-milk butter. Insider tip: Sohn's duck-fat fries are only available on Fridays and Saturdays.
