Chicago Beef & Dog Company
A former Chinese take-out in Irvington was given new life as this casual neighborhood source for earnest grill-top cooking. In the great Chicago dog tradition, Vienna all-beefs are cradled in Turano Bakery buns with all the fixings you’d expect, prepared either via the traditional sear or charred. The street-cart standard gets some competition from the chili cheese–topped Belushi and an Italian beef–topped Italian sausage. A full menu of fat burgers, hand-battered chicken tenders, and an “Old Man’s Grilled Cheese” ensure that there is something for everyone at this eastside spot. Lunch and dinner daily.$
