THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rubin's Red Hot Restaurant Review

: This spot was founded by studio exec Norm Rubin, a native Chicagoan who was having a hard time finding an authentic Chicago dog in L.A. What makes this establishment truly unique is the fact that its sidewalk tables lie beneath a massive steel support salvaged from an abandoned El-Train station in Chi-Town. The signature Big Red is an all-beef frank on an onion-poppyseed bun, dressed with mustard, relish, red onions, tomatoes, pepperoncini and a pickle. The surprisingly extensive menu also includes a spicy Polish dog loaded with sauerkraut, a somewhat wimpy turkey dog, spicy hot wings, ribs, even fajitas. For a side dish, go for the cheddar cheese fries.
