The Wiener's Circle
Where we've featured it
The Wiener's Circle tastes great when you're sober, but like most things in life, it's infinitely better when you're not. Is there a more iconic late-night spot? The answer is no. Order a char dog and cheese fries. If it's a particularly rowdy night, you'll probably be encouraged to yell expletives at the staff (or don't, because peer pressure has nothing on you). Either way, definitely give them a high five and a tip on your way out because it's all in good fun.
What To Get: Char Dog, Cheddar Fries.
What To Know: Late-night antics aside The Wieners Circle has good food, picnic benches out front, open until 4am during week and 5am weekends.
Like flying a kite at night, there’s something that feels a little strange about going to The Wiener’s Circle in Lakeview when it’s not 4am. But the hot dogs are very good, and stopping here in the afternoon is allowed. Sober or not.
Beautiful weather, boats, beaches, and a Chicago hot dog. Welcome to the U.S. of A. Cheese fries are very American too - just saying.
