Lola’s is a hot dog stand that serves Detroit-style coney dogs - pork-and-beef sausages covered in chili. The dogs here have a great snap, and the chili is a fun change of pace from the typical Chicago fixings (although they offer those, too). To drink, there’s Faygo, Vernors, and a few milkshake options, the most exciting of which is the Sanders Bumpy Cake Shake, made with a Detroit delicacy involving devil’s food cake, buttercream frosting, and fudge icing.
