Taste Chicago Restaurant Review

: Transplanted Chicagoans may not miss the frigid winds blowing off Lake Michigan, but they do miss their Chicago dogs. Actor and former Chicagoan Joe Mantegna decided to do something about it, opening this stand that dispenses the classic Chicago-style dog: a Vienna beef frank on a poppyseed bun topped with mustard, relish, tomatoes, onions, peppers and a dill pickle spear, then finished off with a dash of celery salt. You'll also find an Italian beef sandwich, barbecued ribs and quite respectable pizza at this loving tribute to the Windy City.
