A family-owned hot dog joint in Andersonville will treat you like one of their own.Summer in Chicago means many things, but above all, these three: insane, sticky humidity, mediocre baseball and frequenting the neighborhood hot dog stand. Huey's Hot Dogs, in eclectic Andersonville, has the look and feel of the classic, authentic Chicago hot dog joint, right down to the Cubs bobbleheads on the wall, red-and-yellow Vienna Beef umbrellas outside and promises of the best banquet on a bun in town.
The menu at Huey's ranges from the traditional to the ambitious, including the classic Chicago-style hot dog (they insist on only using Vienna Beef), a grilled chicken sandwich made from a recipe passed down by and named for the previous owner's father and a push-your-stomach-to-the-limit turducken sausage (yes, you read that correctly) with a cranberry-horseradish sauce, all served alongside classic fresh-cut hot-dog stand fries, served warm and never too greasy. Fitting in with the progressive fabric of the neighborhood, Huey's also offers vegetarian and vegan options, including a soy-protein veggie dog topped with bold, satisfying chili stuck through with bright red beans. We know literally every dining establishment ever says this about their vegetarian options, but it's true — for about five minutes, we were absolutely sure it was a real hot dog. They say they get that a lot.
