This little establishment is a must stop for Chicago dog lovers and cheeseburger fiends. Uncle Franky’s, the original establishment, offers a legit Chicago style menu at a reasonable price. The food itself is absolutely on point. Whether it’s a Chicago dog, a Juicy Lucy, Italian Beef, Philly Cheese Steak, or some freshly cut fries; Uncle Franky’s does it right. The tiny building is located smack dab in the neighborhoods of NE, and can easily be missed. Next time you are cruising down Broadway, keep yours eyes peeled, you might want to make the stop.

Although Pappy’s is no secret, we had to put em on. The place claims to be a Chicago style restaurant specializing in Chicago style dogs and Italian beef sandwiches. Even though these may be some of their specialty foods, they have an endless menu including catfish, omelets, cheesesteaks, and a variety of chicken wings. They don’t have a website for us to link them to, so hear me out when I say this place is legit. Expect to spend anywhere from $2-7 at Pappy’s, and you will get a damn good meal in return. Also, check out their $2.99 breakfast special which includes eggs, hash-browns and one of a kind toast.
