Upon arriving in the United States from Europe, the hot dog, like many immigrants, was forced to change its name from its original mouthful of a moniker, Frankfurter in Zweiben und Serf. Enjoy a dog by another name with today's Groupon: for $3, you get one city dog combo with fries and a drink (a $6.50 value) at any of America's Dog's four convenient locations.
America's Dog's city-themed meat-cylinders map out the menu with style. Choose a dog from the city of your choice. If you're feeling a little New York nostalgia despite never having been there, bury your face in a mountain of sauerkraut and brown mustard instead of flying home to fight with your siblings. When Chicago's cool weather makes you want to head south for the winter, grab a Dallas dog, topped with chili, onion, and shredded cheddar. Save on heating costs with the Santa Fe jalapeño dog, covered in green salsa and diced onion to keep your internal thermometer at a much higher level than that drawing of a thermometer representing how financially close you are to a trip to Astronaut Camp. Indulge in the golden goodness of a Baltimore dog, with melted cheddar and grilled onions topping the deep-fried tube of wonder. Celebrate your inner trendy foodie with Westport's grilled dog, topped with mustard, relish, sauerkraut, and bacon. To aid your dog digestion, the combo also comes with the stomach-soothing powers of french-fried potatoes and a sorrow-drowning soda.
Much like the oft-admired architecture of the city, the Chicago dog blends art deco onions, modern sport peppers, and classical tomato with a mustardy mortar that fuses its pickle brick to the tender bun. Defend your city from the flavor occupation with a couple of Chicago-style dogs, and relish the dream of encased-meat perfection. Camp out by the door and squirt ketchup users with copious amounts of ketchup–– especially if they call it catsup.
Sniff out America's Dog in the Chicago Sun-Times, on Centerstage, on NBC Chicago, and at many other places. Yelpers give America's Dog a 3.5-star average for the Lincoln Avenue location and 3.5 stars for the Randolph Street location.
- Located in the heart of bar territory, America's Dog knows the kind of hours that its customers keep and kindly stays open late to accommodate them. Fortunately its dogs also pass the true test of taste–they're just as delicious on a sober afternoon. –Centerstage
America's Dog & Grill
