Wiener's Circle

2622 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL - (773) 477-7444
Posted By Jason Warren on 1/29/2004 3:33:00 PM
You can't go a block in Chicago without seeing a hot dog stand and A Wiener's Cirlce is one to stop at. Unlike most stands that steam their dogs this place is different that it offers char red hots. Not much for looks or atmosphere step inside and quickly place your order. You won't get much hospitality but just focus on the coming meal. After picking your choice of condiments grab a stool at the counter with a view of Clark and enjoy the cripsy chargrilled skin of the dog, the softbun and the supporting cast of condiments. And don't forget the fresh cut fries, served in abundance. For 4ish dollars you will leave plenty full.

A close up of a Wiener's Circle red hot shows just how pretty the picalilli is, and how fresh the tomatoes are. Note also the natural casing on the Vienna frank ... and the poppy seeds dotting the soft Rosen's bun.

The char-cooked cheddar burgers are great, but we can never resist getting Wiener's Circle hot dogs.

A Wiener's Circle char dog, ordered without condiments for the picture's sake. Look at that crunchy skin!

Like all the great red hot shops in Chicago, The Wiener's Circle is a humble place.
