Chicago transplant here...

Looking for my old Chicago fast-food favorites, and spots where to procure them...

* Chicago Hot Dogs (Vienna Beef Franks)
* Italian Beef/Sausage Sandwiches
* Kronos Gyros
* Vienna Polish Sausage
* Pizza Puffs (Kronos)

Interested in fast-food joints and supermarkets that may carry these items...Also of interest, if any S.Rosen or other brand of Pooyseed hotdog buns are available in the DC area? Thanks!

    I read that vienna beef is being carried by target. They apprently sell them both as a grocery item (for the targets that does sell food) and at their food court as well. You might want to check them out.

    What I miss from chicago are the italian beef sandwiches. Yum.

      There's a place someone recommended on the board called Zack's Dogs. It's in the Baltimore area. They sell different styles of dogs and I did try the Chicago style. It was decent, but then again I haven't been to Chicago for a dog. I've been to more of the Jersey/New York/Connecticut dog places.

      They do have the Vienna Beef dogs there.

        I live and work in the Reston area and only went to Joe's once for a basic hot dog. It was juicy and tasty. They have a great selection of toppings.

        Here is the info about:
        Joe's Dog House
        712 Lynn Street
        this info was taken from http://www.herndoncuisine.com/ "Joe Eiginger, the owner of Joe's Dog House, is a former I.T. professional who traded in his mouse pad for a dog house! The hot dogs are named after different breeds of canines. Some of the variations include hot dogs with chili, cheese, jalepenos, bacon and/or sauerkraut. You can choose from your standard beef hotdog, bratwurst or kielbasa. If you're not in the mood for a dog, there are several other menu items including burgers, chicken sandwiches and cheesesteaks."
