The majority of monolingual Americans are often bitterly disappointed when they find that René Magritte's Ceci n'est pas une cheeseburger is not a cheeseburger. Equip your hands with very real edibles with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of hotdogs, hamburgers, and ice cream at Dips & Dogs in Hinsdale.
At Dips & Dogs, quintessential American eats—hot dogs, hamburgers, and onion rings—collaborate with sweet-tooth-sating frosty ice-cream treats to abate hunger pangs. A chili cheese dog ($3.45) coddles a topped frank in a beef holster, a grilled bacon double cheeseburger ($6.50) can be teamed with onion rings ($2.70), and a steak sandwich ($8.95) presents a way of eating beef without using a serrated knife or a sharpened windshield-wiper blade. Tongues laden in sweet-sensing taste buds can be wrapped in a blanket of frosty cream with a banana split ($4.95), a large dipped cone ($2.99), or a parfait ($3.73), which, like the moon's atmosphere, has three layers. During warmer months, patrons can dine on the outdoor patio.
Dips & Dogs
Dips & Dogs swings open its doors seven days a week to on-the-move munchers from lunch hour until late in the evening. Succulent wafts of chili-coated fries, cheesy hot dogs, and freshly grilled burgers escape from the snack stand onto Garfield Street, luring passersby in to browse a menu of eats more American than an apple pie sliced by Hulk Hogan. Outside, a patio hosts meals and games of bags throughout the summer.
