Something quick, gourmet, and classic… The Chicago hot dog is a continuing source of fuel for the people of Chicago. Although available at every dog joint in the city, we attained our fix from “Chicago’s Dog House” at 816 W. Fullerton Ave, open from 11am to 9pm.
This dog house is wall to wall with Chicago-centric décor and a hand drawn chalk art menu. A gourmet selection of creations is also available for you to satiate your enthusiasm.
A poppy seed bun, Vienna Beef dog, minced onions, sweet relish, sliced tomato, sport peppers, sliced pickle, and a dusting of celery salt – CLASSICALLY. You can tell that it’s a winner when your “wiener” is charred ever so slightly.
For a limited time, sink your teeth into the “Rahm Dog” named after the Mayor of our beautiful city. Sharp Cheddar, caramelized onions, and a house made sweet and spicy mustard. For each one purchased, one dollar is donated to the Illinois Restaurant Association Education Foundation’s ProStart program.
In true windy city fashion, the “Dog House” pays tribute to the sausage king of Chicago, Mr. Doug Sohn – better known as Hot Doug. In Aaron Wolfson’s own words (Owner of Chicago’s Doghouse) “His creative sausage preparations will forever be remembered in our great city we call home. An inspiration to our brand and many like us, we owe a big thank you for paving the way, daring to be different, and leading the sausage industry in Chicago. In memory of Hot Doug’s and the joy it brought many, we honor and offer The Doug’s Tribute Dog. Foie Gras and Sauternes Duck Sausage with Truffle Aioli, Foie Gras Mousse and Fleur de Sel.”
