Took the wife out to eat. Just to get out of the house.

The food was a good (and messy) as I expected.

I had the Chili Cheese Dog,
Wife had the Polish Dog with Grilled onions.

Surprise to me they had RC Cola and Squirt on fountain.

Jimmy took our orders. Sounded like a Chicago accent, suitably surly.

I recommend it.

BTW they had "Go Greek once a week" sign for their Pitas.
My wife rolled her eyes at when I pointed it out to her.

hmm. that freaks me out.
Our Wrigleyville doesn't really exist any more..
It's now an official, glossy, shitshow.

It used to be a functioning, accessible was
THE coolest thing...ballpark, people living across the street..paying rent, owning, whatever..working class folks.

Now it's glossed, developed, filled with inauthentic bars catering to a bunch of morons. I don't go anywhere near it..i avoid it because i hate seeing it. i used to love taking the cruise through it...up Clark..over and through on Addison.
Folks see a place, love it for what it actually is..go there...and then decide to basically destroy everything that made it what it was..that's how it works..the heart was cut out of that hood

And here I thought you went to the real place. Only "old" spot left around the ballpark is about 1/2 block North. Friend of mine lives a block away from the park at Clark & Grace, park at his place, and I walk here before a game.

Google Maps of Wrigleyville

Or, drive 1.5 miles South of Wrigley to The Wiener's Circle.

Or go out near O'Hare to Gene & Judes, which is better than both of these ;)

Good Luck!

I miss Hot Doug's.

Goodness that Wrigleyville Dogs sign brings back some memories!

Took my partner to Poundtown this weekend.

Would like to head south to Brownsville soon.
