The Chicago area features a roadside stop that's been around since 1929, serving Vienna Beef dogs. Fluky's features a marquee that may no longer be the original, but still features the dog and weenie prominently.

A kind of "dinerish" looking joint, selling hot dogs, and root beer desserts, among others, Dan's Dogs is a Medina staple. Here, you can get your dogs anyway you like, even 65 different ways! Want a dog with peanut butter? The Dan's is the place to be.

Have a double dog at Dub-L-Dog in Chicago. This is just one of the many hot dog joints in town. As a matter of fact, Chicago seems to have as many hot dog places to eat as the city has skyscrapers, if not more.
