Learn its distinguishing characteristics with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of hot dogs and burgers at Teddy's Red Hots. Choose either the Downers Grove or Darien locations.
Sizzling grills and tongues of flame leap to embrace succulent hot dogs and italian beef at Teddy's Red Hots, a classic Chicago eatery whose menu ranges from steaming sausages to frosty treats. The italian beef sandwich ($4.69) employs a 35-year-old special recipe to craft tender sandwiches brimming with juicy beef, savory spices, and the secrets of Watergate. Sink teeth into a Vienna red hot dog, an all-beef hot dog topped with your choice of condiments such as pickles, sport peppers, and bright green relish ($2.19). Diners can also sample a char-broiled steak burger on a gourmet bun ($4.99), or cool off taste buds with homemade italian ice ($2.55+) in flavors such as black cherry, lemon, and seasonal flavors including peach, mixed berry, and fir tree sap.
