Paper has been used for fast-food wrapping for centuries, which explains why archeologists discovered traces of tahini on the Dead Sea Scrolls. Decode the meaning of timeless eats with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of burgers, hot dogs, and fries at The Little Island in Evanston.
The grill gurus at The Little Island, known for decades as Hot Dog Island, sizzle up mighty bun-held eats escorted to meals by an abundance of fresh fried sides. Browsing the menu of pipe-shaped proteins, diners find a Vienna Redhot ($2.15) losing a duel to a foot-long Polish sausage ($4.25), while the half-pound Big Island Classic burger casually looks on ($3.99). Merkts cheese blankets orders of cheddar fries ($1.69–$2.19), and frosty hand-dipped milkshakes ($2.49) perk up diners tired from securing a parking spot or ordering completely in pantomime.
