Chicago hotdogs in Center City?

nish54 Feb 2, 2010 09:10 AM

Anyone know where I can get a Chicago style hot dog in Center City? If not Center City, the greater Philadelphia area would be fine too, but i would like to be able to go for lunch.

    Moe's on Washington & Gray's Ferry has them (and all kinds of stuff) Also Yo Dogs in Wyndmoor. (about 20 min outside the city)

    starr's Square Burger has a sort of Philly / Chicago dog thing going on.

    Or for some good philly hot dogs, might want to check out Johnny's Hots and Paesano's
