about us


When you visit Chicago, there are a few things you simply must do. You’ve got to see the Bean. You’ve got to take a tour on the Chicago River. And most importantly, you enjoy a Chicago style Hot dog.

Downtown Dogs is just what you are looking for when it comes to Chicago street cuisine. Friendly service, delicious dogs and sausages, everything you want. Except for ketchup. Never ketchup.

A Quick and Memorable Visit

Downtown Dogs has the ideal location for busy Chicago professionals or for shoppers exhausted after trekking the Magnificent Mile. Just a few steps away from Michigan Avenue, our restaurant is cozy and quick. Decide what you want between our menu of Chicago classics (the best char dog in the city) and other fun fare. Want a beer to wash it down? Take your dog over to our favorite neighborhood bar, Pippin’s Tavern, and grab your favorite adult beverage to enjoy at a table.

Chicagoans know their hot dogs and sausages, and we have serious opinions about our Italian beef. Sample them all right here at Downtown Dogs, and realize what all the fuss is about. You will find yourself coming back a few times before you leave town.

Catering Too

Are you a local? Then you already know that our food is the best taste of Chicago in the downtown area. But, did you know that we cater? You’ll be the hit of your next office party or client meeting if you allow us to serve up platters of our best dishes. Let’s make you the office hero with a bit of Downtown Dogs.

So, what will it be? A Downtown Dog or a Char Cheddar Dog? Italian Beef or Sausage or a Combination? Get down here already, your stomach is growling.
