The application said it was open now. When we got here, it was closed! That stinks because we came out of our way to get here. Please update TripAdvisor with this information!

Chicago-themed. Food was good. Tried the Chicago dog and gyro. Gyro was good but not my favorite. Service was friendly and place was very clean. Note they Only have drinks in a can, bottled water and no ice.

What can you say about hot dogs? Not much. Bugsy's are good, their condiments are quite tasty. They serve gyros and other selections. But their FRIES! Dadgum they are delicious. I always order extra.

Good food with nice service and they do deliver. The food is average and only have canned soda, no fountain drinks. The beef sandwich is very good, the gyro is average. Go to Jimmy James Blue Goose for that.

This is a great old fashioned hot dog stand with ample indoor table space. If you can't find it here, you don't need to eat it! Polish sausage from Maxwell Street and Vienna beef hot dogs along with Italian beef, fries, etc. This certainly is...More
