Using a pillowy bun as a barrier, hot dogs are safely protected from environmental hazards such as open manholes and greasy-handed schoolchildren. Enjoy snugly shielded franks with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of hot dogs, wings, and drinks at Chicago Dogs, valid at the Scarborough location.
The Chicago Dogs crew prepares a menu of American comfort fare from all-beef hot dogs and local ingredients. The eatery’s signature Chicago dog ($2.89) earned accolades from the readers of the Portland Press Herald for its use of authentic ingredients, including celery salt, sport peppers, and housemade relish chopped with a Chicago bus pass. Diners can also select one of nine other dogs, such as the chili-cheese dog ($3.29) or the vegetarian soy dog ($1.99). A six-wing combo ($7.93) positions wing sentinels atop a mountain of hand-cut fries, and a large cheesesteak ($6.79) alternates layers of thinly sliced roast beef with onions, green peppers, and a sprinkle of cheddar-jack cheese. Chicago Dogs also vends a number of soft drinks ($1.95/16-oz.) and crafts five milkshake flavors, including chocolate, strawberry, and orange creamsicle ($3.99).
