I drove by a new place on Okeechobee Rd. Not Okeechobee Blvd. Just south of Okee Blvd off of Parker near the tracks... It is called "Chicago Food Shack" Looks like a hotdog place. Anyone tried it yet?

    Just had a Chicago-style hot dog there, and it really hit the spot. They had all the right accompaniments, including the poppy seed roll, neon relish and good Vienna beef dog. The fresh cut fries were pretty good--they're still working on the crispness apparently. They're also doing real Italian beef sandwiches, will have to try one next time. The owner is working hard and very interested in feedback, I think it's a good addition for an inexpensive quick lunch in the area. He also said he's going to be adding a fish sandwich and maybe fish tacos, and they have a small selection of sandwiches as well. It's tucked back in an industrial-looking area. Give it a try!
