Using a pillowy bun as a barrier, hot dogs are safely protected from environmental hazards such as open manholes and greasy-handed schoolchildren. Enjoy snugly shielded franks with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Chicago-style eats at Windy City Dawgs in Rockwall.
Windy City Dawgs serves up a hearty menu that revolves around eats inspired by––or chartered directly from––Chicago. Meat cravings find savory satiation with a Chicago-style Vienna beef hot dog ($4) or a slow-cooked seasoned italian beef sandwich ($5.25) cradled by crisp-crusted Gonnella bread. Or, please Chi-hungry taste buds with made-from-scratch pan pizzas ($13+) and Supreme tamales ($1.60), a cylindrical classic since 1950, with a cornmeal shell––much like the Hamburglar's getaway car––filled to the brim with ground beef and spices.
A stash of broad-shouldered beverages likewise await to wash down the Chicagoan-style chow at Windy City Dawgs. Dad's brand root beer and Green River soda ($1.50 each for regular size) add fizzy finish to feasts, while homemade ice cream makes each classic vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry milkshake ($1.99) more personal than a monogrammed baby.
