Hot Doug’s in Chicago – The Ultimate Hot Dog Lunch

In Information, Midwest, Restaurants by Daryl & Mindi Hirsch17 Comments

Hot Doug’s is closing!  That was the news we heard a couple of months ago – like a venerable torpedo across the bow of the tube meat world. The Chicago institution, which made its name by elevating the pedestrian hot dog, would be shutting its doors for good on October 4th. In a marvelous coincidence, we had an opportunity to be in Chicago in early June. In light of the news, a visit to Chef Doug Sohn’s hot dog temple became mandatory.
