Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hot dogs into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-relish flakes to vacuum-sealed bun bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon to fRedhots and Fries in Glenview. The menu at this classic dog stand is stocked with local bratwurst, polish sausages, and traditional Vienna Beef hot dogs, which were briefly used as currency in Chicago after the Great Fire. Broaden your meat horizons with a specialty wild game sausage—selections vary, but past stuffers have included alligator, boar, and antelope. Alongside dogs, sandwiches, burgers, and vegetarian options, fRedhots serves cones of crispy Belgian fries with a variety of sauces and toppings, including spicy aioli and pesto.
fRedhots and Fries comes recommended by Zagat, which gives it a 21 for food, 10 for décor, and 20 for service. Yelpers give it a near-perfect 4.5-star average, and five impressed Citysearchers give it a perfect five-star average:
