Excellent food, great workers, great management. I've been coming here for the past 20+ years since I was 8 years old. When I came by the restaurant today I was greeted by the same friendly workers and thanked by the owner Andy on my way out.

This is the original, I remember the one on Dempster and Bronx in Skokie, later became Mage's. Stopped in Friday, one of the original guys was there, chatted a bit. Said we'd be in more often and talked about the other store.

For a treat that can not be beat, enjoy the special "grilled jumbo dog with cheddar and bacon". Get it the way tge owner, Andy, recommends - mustard, grilled onions and dill pickles. (Oh, yeah, I add saurkraut.) This is what I reward myself with when I have worked too hard! Rejuvenates me every time!

Andy Greenspan and his dad started this great joint probably 50 or so years ago after I'd been out of New Trier, moved to Colorado, and came back craving a real Chicago hotdog & cheese fries in the 70's. All I can tell you is that this is simply one of the all-time greatest stands ever if you love our local sandwich & grill delicacies.

Great Chicago style hotdog stand that serves merkts cheddar my favorite. Owner is always behind the counter he works fast and efficiently. This place is old school and will even hook up condiments! Great seasoned cris cut fries, hot dogs, Italian beef, gyros, and beyond.

Oh come on if you haven't been here for the char cheddar burger you haven't lived. I know dramatic but I love this place been going here for decades? Also the criss cut fries with the cheddar is great. They use the good Wisconsin cheddar like Wiener circle.
