The Dog Joint

Red Hot Chicago hot dogs, burgers, homemade Italian beef and skin-on fries make up the bulk of the menu at this little Lincoln Park hot dog spot where specialties include not-for-the-faint-of-heart indulgences such as a sizable bacon cheddar burger and "three-way fries" loaded with cheddar, sour cream and bacon bits. Traditionalists can get Chicago-style dogs; veggie dogs are available too. Prices are super affordable across the board (a hot dog-fries-soft drink combo runs about $4). Carryout is an option, but there's seating too. Choose one of the seats at the Armitage Avenue-facing front counter, where pocket windows open fully to create the illusion of alfresco dining.
