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 Chicago-style hot dogs, sandwiches, and grilled fare at Hippo's Hot Dogs in Clinton Township.
At Hippo's Hot Dogs, grill gurus sizzle up a full menu of authentic Chicago-style hot dogs and sandwiches made with Chicago-born meats and breads, earning their eatery a spot in the Vienna Beef Hall of Fame. Let your taste buds stroll the streets of the windy city with the Maxwell Street Polish Sausage ($3.50), an onion-and-mustard-slathered rolliche that offers a more flavorful taste of the city than a sautéed map. The traditional Hippo dog makes its way to the bun after a thorough romp through the vegetable garden ($2.03), while the quarter-pound ultimate dog flaunts even more flavorsome frocks with the addition of sauerkraut, giardiniera, and chili ($4.65). Opt for non-sausage selections with an italian beef sandwich with grilled onions and peppers ($5.25) or a grilled chicken sandwich ($3.80) at the counter of the welcoming mustard-colored eatery.
