If you’ve had a hot dog in Chicago (or many places in the U.S.), chances are it was of the Vienna Beef variety. And this well-known meat supplier has its own hot dog stand in Bridgeport directly across from its main distribution plant, where you can eat classic dogs while shopping for your next cookout. Get a spicy and snappy Maxwell polish for $5, grab a seat at one of the many outdoor tables, and watch as semi-trucks play their own version of Tetris in the street.
