Murphy's Red Hots

This Lakeview spot is the quintessential Chicago hot dog stand. You can watch your dog being cooked and prepared. Owner Bill Murphy is the man who took the Chicago red hot to Japan--he has two stands there. And while you're here, take a peek at the Murphy's memorabilia. Pictures and T-shirts adorn the walls of the seating area. A foot-long red hot will cost you $3.35, and the menu points out that the Japanese call this treat the 'Big Murphy.' Besides dogs, you can get a garden salad, chili or even a grilled chicken and salad plate for less than $5.
