Airport hotdogs are not something I would recommend to anyone, yet I found myself waiting online ordering the Chicago Special hotdog they offer. And I was not sorry. Not even a little bit.

If you want something besides McDonald's or Starbucks this isn't to bad. Quick service prices are average for the airport. I think all the vendors at the airport rip you off. And of course you need to have a Chicago dog if you're in Chicago

Always busy. Fast service. Fast delivery.Pleasant staff. Not my preferred Chicago Hot Dog...but when in O'Hare Airport it is worth the stop. Terminal 3 Concourse L (gate L4). Jumbo Chardog deal (dog, fries and drink 9.98 total) with everything. Get your order and find a place to sit. They do have Italian beef and sausage, gyros and turkey burgers to... More

Beef sandwich was excellent if not unconventional. Only the best know that the beef is kept aside and warmed in its hot jus just before serving in on an Italian roll. Giar dinar was perfect. But they can't make a hit dog on leaving it is slathered in neon green relish, Ycch!

Haven't been to Chicago in a while so for my layover wanted something traditionally Chicago. So I opted for the hot dog as the popcorn cost about the same. I had the Jumbo Char Dog with pickle spear, mustard, onions, green peppers and I opted out of the special sport peppers. I asked for my french fires extra crispy and... More

Wife and I split a Itillan beef sandwich with everything as well as a grilled dog. Both were surprisingly good. Not sure if it was because we spent what felt like hours in a non moving security checkpoint line but I would eat there again. Has to be better than the McDonald's next to it.

I truly enjoyed this Chicago hot dog! The last time I had one it tasted awful over twenty years ago. Being I was hungry after a flight, I decided to try one from Gold Coast. The price is, like usual at an airport, expensive, but it was very tasty, as were the French fries. They got my dog to me... More

Menu ranged from breakfast and lunch items. A bit pricey but thats typical in an Airport. If your hungry and need a bit before your flight, try it.

The hot dot was terrible! Any Chicagoan knows the order in which the ingredient are assembled are critical? In this case the relish was on the bottom making the bun extremely soggy! Under ripe tomatoes. And the worse insult to the Chicago hot dog was the ketchup! Disgusting.nif you are going to represent yourself as a vendor of the Chicago... More
