Budacki’s is a classic, cash-only hot dog stand in Ravenswood with a few picnic tables for outdoor seating. There’s a long menu of the usual suspects (like polishes, gyros, and pizza puffs), but the most exciting thing about this place is that you can get Crisp wings. Just be sure to hit an ATM on the way over.
