Chicago dogs roam Lee Road



The secret of a great Chicago dog is the celery salt. Or it could be the radioactive-green relish. Or the peppers. Or the tomatoes or pickles or onions. Maybe it's that all of these goodies are crammed atop a single Vienna beef hot dog, surrounded by a steamed bun and placed in my anxious hands for immediate consumption. Feeling hungry? Haul yourself over to Weenie Wagon (910 Lee Road) and dive into a mouthwatering Chicago dog, bargain priced at $1.98.

Housed in a tiny trailer in the Sam Ash parking lot, the Weenie Wagon is a throwback to the good old days, when delightfully tacky eateries lined the highways and nobody feared the mystery ingredients of street meat. In addition to Chicago Dogs, the Weenie Wagon dispenses excellent corn dogs, fire dogs, Polish sausage, Italian sausage and salty french fries. Get 'em at the drive-through or have a seat on the patio and enjoy a top-notch view of traffic.
