A meal with friends soothes the soul, much like a mother's hug or a movie about brave dogs learning to read. Enjoy a feel-good feast with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of hot dogs, sandwiches, and burgers at Mad Dog's Eatery.
Mad Dog Eatery's menu of hearty Chicago-style takeout fare equips jaws with generously portioned hot dogs, hefty sandwiches, and ample veggie options. All-beef Vienna hot dogs weigh up to a quarter pound and star in meaty mouthfuls such as the Bull Dog ($2.99–$5.99), with chili and slaw, or the Chicago dog ($2.99–$5.99), which lurks beneath traditional Second City accessories of pickles, tomatoes, sport peppers, celery salt, and wind repellent. Irish veggie dogs ($3.99/$7.99) sport tangy tartans of relish and kraut, and french rolls entrap a quarter pound of sliced sirloin, provolone, and giardiniera in the Napie's italian beef sandwich ($4.99/$7.99). As guests chow down on 6-ounce bacon cheeseburgers ($4.99), the walls come alive with images of cartoon bulldogs that guard the snack shack's 2-D valuables.
