    “Obviously, the decision has nothing to do with our success, but my fiancee and I are tired of cooking,” said Plonka at the time. He planned to take some time off, travel, then maybe find a less demanding restaurant concept to put in the space.

    Turns out, Plonka had a change of heart. In an Instagram post, he announced that U.B. Dogs will be reopening: “After doing both extensive research about various new concepts, as well as some soul searching, we’ve come to the conclusion that we just really want to keep serving the good people of Chicago good Chicago food.”
