The USDA's food pyramid traditionally puts bread on the bottom because some of the most savory suppers are best served on buns. Support grainy foundations with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of hot dogs, sandwiches, and thirst quenchers at Pam's Chicago Style Dogs & More.
The menu at Pam's lights a Chicago Fire–sized fire in the belly with more than 15 specialty hot-dog varieties, many of which are responsible for the eatery's 2008 honors for Best Hot Dog, as awarded by the Riverfront Times. Pam's Chicago-style 100% Vienna Beef hot dog sails on a steamed poppy-seed bun along with shipmates, including yellow mustard, neon-green relish, onions, tomatoes, a pickle spear, sport peppers, and celery salt ($3.49). For those feeling eastbound while chowing down, Pam's also outputs the Philly Dog—swiss or american cheese, grilled onions, and sport peppers ($4.03)—and the New York Dog, served with brown mustard, sauerkraut, and giardiniera ($4.03).
Beyond the elongated bun, Pam's fires up an entourage of sandwiches, gyros, and desserts—including the warm, crispy deep-fried PB&J sandwich ($2.99), the classically dressed gyro sandwich ($5.49), and the Extreme Balls of Glory, a quintet of battered and deep-fried chocolate-chip-cookie-dough balls enshrouding a rich, pinstriped Oreo-cookie core ($4.49).
With café-style seating and warm, earthy tones, Pam's welcomes patrons to soak up the unpretentious air while their robots absorb the eatery's complimentary WiFi. Beginning in July, Pam's will also begin hosting live music performances, ensuring that all bites, belly rubs, and high fives occur rhythmically, rather than rarely.
