Wiener and Still Champion

wiener and still championIf you want a hot dog that packs a punch, head to Wiener and Still Champion in Evanston, where the cartoon wiener over the door is sporting a pair of boxing gloves. Anyone who's been here will be sure to tell you that these franks are champs indeed.

Inside this simple storefront, patrons of all ages come to enjoy the Chicago-style dogs, along with fresh-cut fries that have been raved about since the place opened in 1975. Wiener also offers honest-to-goodness corndogs. It's amazing how something so simple can hit the spot so perfectly. And they're only a buck with any combo meal! Vegetarians aren't left out either, as they're offered a deep-fried falafel burger on a hand-formed sesame 'knot roll.' And if you're really hungry, try the double dog or triple cheeseburger combo.

These winning wieners will have you looking forward to 'dog' days.

    A good classic Chicago dog, not to far from where I went to undergrad.
