The Lucky Dog
The menu at The Lucky Dog is pure Chicago: Vienna Beef franks with all the fixings, grilled italian beef and sausage sandwiches (red sauce optional), gyros, even catfish and pit-smoked barbecue ribs and chicken. It's a lot to master, but the restaurant has been tinkering with its recipes since 1984—which they can do because they make so many staples of the menu in-house. Here you can find gyro and Italian beef slices sizzling on the grill beside the made-to-order burgers, as well as soups and chilis that are whipped up from scratch. Of course, this kind of hearty food seems extra comforting late at night, and accordingly, all four locations stay open until the wee hours of the morning.
