The Weiner Circle

Is this place worth a visit? What makes it so great?
On a warm summer night, at like one am, it was always a favorite. Now, I am writing from memory, have not lived in Chicago for a few years and it was years earlier that I had eaten there. The fries were always good, the burgers and dogs too.
I don't think I ever ate there in the daylight

I dunno, I've been eating there since 1989, and I love the place. Old habits die hard, I guess. At any rate, only tourists and idiots go to watch and participate in the "show."
At the W.C., the Char-Cheddar-Burgers, Char-Dogs and Cheese Fries are the way(s) to go. They are simple and honest, if messy affairs, and great indulgences every once in awhile.

re: Erik M
I agree with you Erik. My only gripe with Wiener's Circle is that I think their hot dogs seem very small. I wish they had a jumbo dog. I guess that goes with the indulgence of it....if I'm going to go for that, I really want to go all out. Great fries. Tastes like the oil hasn't been changed in years. Really great.
