Easily my favorite, although probably the least "Chicago" of the Chicago
Style Dogs.  Only toppings available: mustard, relish, onions and sport
peppers.  Don't forget that when you order a dog, fries come with it (on
it, actually).  If you make the mistake of ordering "a dog with fries,"
be prepared to eat a lot of grease :-)  There is no seating, but on the
other side of the Des Plaines river on Grand is a nice park to sit and
eat your treasure.

Did I mention it's my favorite?

Portillo's is decent and very prevalent, Buona Beef is similar but with
a decidedly different flavor.  My favorite is Jay's Beef in Schiller

For an interesting visual on these and a lot more, check out:
no pizza, though.
