Wiener's Circle: "Stand Up Eating at Its Finest!" Wiener's Circle Tip by threegoofs

Wiener's Circle, Chicago: 7 reviews and 7 photos

One of the best hotdog stands in the city - if you are in the Lincoln Park neighborhood and want to grab a hot dog - or better yet, a Char Cheddar Burger , you cannot do better than this place. No real seating except for some picnic tables outside, but my kids love the place.

This place is legendary as a late, late night hangout after the bars close, but dont let that deter you from bringing the kids here during reasonable hours. The workers here abuse the drunks and give quite a show later in the night.
Just dont order a chocolate milkshake after midnight unless you know what you are doing....

Favorite Dish: Char Cheddar Burger for me , and the kids love the Cheddar Fries. I'm not sure if its real chese, but they have this, um, vat of orange stuff they ladle out on your grilled burger, fries, cheddar dog etc. Its a little glop of heaven.
