        Also try the Italian beef and the Beef and sausage combo...great stuff! Not a big fan of chains but this one is special. I think that it would thrive in any city.

        1. There's a sizeable hotdog-oriented restaurant at the corner of Midwest Road and Butterfield Road in Oak Brook. It's been some years since I've been there, but I remember it as having pretty good dogs.
