Less than 10 items grace the menu at Murphy’s Red Hots, perhaps in an ode to the simple lifestyle of the 1950s—the era the joint is modeled after. Or maybe it’s because Murphy’s just doesn’t need anything but its hot dogs, Polishes, brats, and burgers. Bill Murphy opened the bright green door to his quaint Wrigleyville eatery in 1987, and over the past 35 years, has helped establish it as one of the places for a true Chicago hot dog, as evidenced by its considerable attention from the media. Whether he’s picking a foot long from the garden or dipping an Italian beef sandwich, Bill mans the grill, preparing the quick and delicious food to-order. At the end of the day, he hangs up his apron and heads home—conveniently located right next door.
