Hot dogs may be America's most cherished food, as evidenced by their immense popularity in such arenas as backyard barbecues, baseball games, and passport-photo stations. Enjoy a portrait of a Chicago classic with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of red hots, cheese fries, shakes, and more at Mustard's Last Stand in Evanston.
Featured as "One of the Best" on Roadfood.com, Mustard's Last Stand dishes out classic Vienna pure-beef hot dogs cradled inside fluffy, steamed poppy-seed buns, crowned by the flavor-enhancing symphony of classic Chicago toppings and flanked by delicious fries. Vienna hot dogs ($2.79) come adorned with the essentials of mustard, relish, pickles, peppers, and tomatoes, ignoring the ketchup bottle like a poet ignores the greeting-card section. Corn dogs ($2.89) combine sweet outer crusts with beefy insides, and italian beef sandwiches ($4.95) and hamburgers ($4.95) steam the soft cores of buns and breads. Diners can spin on Mustard's classic counter stools while feasting on cheddar fries ($2.05 for a small), washing them down with soft drinks ($1.55 for a small) or thick milkshakes ($2.85) made with three scoops of one of 10 ice-cream options.
