After spending several hours at the Art Institute, this was a great little place to grab a hot dog and a coke. It's a tiny place, with a counter. But a great place to rest your dogs while you have a dog or two with everything.

This place has great Chicago Hot dogs, at low prices, in spite of his central location within the Loop.

Quick service, friendly guys behind the counter and that hot dog, in its simplicity being...a hot dog, was very tasty with the spicy peppers kicking flavor here and there.

You order it with everything, Chicago style. Nice stop for a quick, cheap and tasty bite in downtown Chicago.

While there are several fries and hot dog serving places in Chicago's Loop, it's at Max's that you'll be serves the finest tasting fries, hot dog and soft drink combo fast and friendly. There is no better place for a hot dog combo in Chicago's Loop. Sitting at the counter on an old stool staring at a mural of Chicago sights that are no longer to be seen, such as Karl Wirsum's "Plug Bug" on the back of the Block 37 Power Station, Edward Hopper's Night Hawks at the nearby Art Institute of Chicago comes to mind. Max's is that kind of place....

...though not really a restaurant, the food couldn't have been better! My husband was DYING to try a Chicago dog...and he wasn't disappointed! Done to order in NO time...and complemented with MY order of cheese fries! I was amazed to see what looked like a cucumber on the top - but he said it was delicious. (MY cheese fries ranked right up there with boardwalk fries from the Jersey shore...awesome!).. Glad he got his wish - and thanks to all the locals who kept pointing us in the right direction!!
