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 $5, you get $10 worth of hot dogs, burgers, and more at Chili Dog Café. This Groupon expires on 6/30/2011.
Chili Dog Café smothers 100% beef hot dogs in made-from-scratch chili and other delectably exotic toppings. The basic chili dog ($3.49) ships these house specialties mouth-ward in a single bread-canoe, while regionally themed dogs sate both hunger and wanderlust. A Chicago dog bears Windy City flourishes of tomato, relish, a pickle spear, mustard, onions, and peppers ($3.99), and internationally inspired eats employ the sauerkraut-flecked flavors of Germany ($3.49) and the spicy, guac-tinged tastes of Mexico ($3.59). Non-sausage sandwiches include the fried chicken sandwich ($5.29) and the big Texas burger, mounded high with bacon, onion rings, jalapeños, mustard, and BBQ sauce ($8.69). Chili can be added onto any menu item for $1.49, or served in a cup ($2.99), bowl ($4.49), or exfoliating mask.
- I got a Chicago Dog and it was GOOOD! My one "trip" through Chicago we stopped at a little shop and had a chili dog and it was incredibly good. This dog was equally as good. – Reed Up
- And the kids and adults loved it! Baked potatoes, wraps and fried goodies pleased the non-dog lovers. – April Guinn, Urbanspoon
