    I grew up and currently live in the suburbs of Chicago's North Shore. It seems to me, and I will admit that i haven't given this a whole lot of thought, that the area is populated by hot dog stands that are just a little bit different than those located in our fair city's other environs. Hot Dog stands up north are a little grander and have menus that are a little more all encompassing then say a Gene & Jude's or a Jim's Original. Furthermore, some of them take the carnival-ishness to the next level, employing magicians and clowns to entertain the masses on the weekends. For better or for worse, this is where I live and eat hot dogs. I started this list in another thread, but think it deserves to be expanded and improved on here. Please submit anything that i have left out and i will edit the post. My hope is to make this list complete.

    Chicago's North Shore, for the purposes of this project, will be defined as those suburbs adjacent to Lake Michigan from Evanston to Lake Forest and those suburbs located just west of those that are adjacent to the lake.

    Evanston

    Wiener and Still Champion
    802 Dempster St
    Evanston, IL, 60202
    (847) 869-0100
    GNR award-winning favorite of this board. Excellent hot dog in the traditional chicago style. IMHO What really really shines here are the unparalleled french fries and corn dogs with homemade dipping sauce.

    The Chuck Wagon (Sams)
    1120 Central Avenue
    Wilmette, IL, 60091
    (847) 256-0120
    Im not sure they even serve hot dogs here (do you need to serve hot dogs to be a hot dog stand?) Outstanding burgers, gyros and burgers topped with gyros as well as great fries. A Wilmette institution.

    Glenview

    fRedhots & Fries [closed]

    Josh's
    873 Sanders Rd
    Northbrook, IL 60062
    (847) 272-1177
    I am going to go out on a limb and say that Josh's is the best hot dog stand on the North Shore. He does everything well and most things are done extremely well. The burgers are fantastic, the dogs are great and the char-salami, which was inspired by Poochies, is better than the original.


    Highland Park

    Michael's
    1879 2nd St
    Highland Park, IL, 60035
    (847) 432-3338
    Hot dog emporium that has grown from a small counter in the 70s to a mega-stand serving dogs, fries and everything in between. I find Michael's to be consistently good, not perfect. Clowns, balloon artists and magicians entertain the throngs on weekends. UPDATE: Michaels has been sold and is no longer using Vienna products. As far as the hot dog itself, there has been a noticeable drop off in quality. (1/14)

    Stash's [closed]
    610 Central Ave
    Highland Park, IL, 60035
    (847) 432-6550
    When Stash owned the restaurant it was much better but the fries are still pretty good. Huge menu.

    Backyard Grill
    1826 Second St.
    Highland Park, Il 60035
    (847) 681-8400
    Jack off all trades. Decent hot dogs and fries. Better homemade gyros.

    Highwood

    The Mean Wiener
    532 Sheridan Road
    Highwood, IL
    847/433-3701
    Mon-Thurs: 11 AM to 8 PM
    Fri - Sat: 11 AM to 10 PM
    Sunday: Closed
    Northshore newcomer from the folks who own Once Upon A Bagel in Highland Park. "The Mean Wiener" is a massive half pound black angus dog covered in chili, cheese and onion. My one, and only, visit yielded a product that i did not love (it was unwieldy) but found to have some potential. [Update 2018] The Mean Weiner has grown into its own and has become an excellent option. The Mexican offerings are standout.

    Buffo's
    431 Sheridan Rd.
    Highwood, IL 60040
    847-432-0301
    More of a pizza/italian sandwich shop, this highwood staple also serves up dogs, polish, etc.

    Deerfield

    Josh's On The Square
    740 Waukegan Rd.
    Deerfield, IL 60015
    (847)607-9945
    Deerfield outpost of Northbrook Hotdoggery. Josh's is my go to Hot dog Stand. He does everything well. Try the patty melt. It is named after yours truly!

    Cooker's [closed]
    469 Lake Cook Rd
    Deerfield, IL, 60015
    (847) 897-5880
    Solid dog and fries included. Lots of parking, kinda outta the way in a strip mall on Lake Cook

    Dear Franks
    843 Waukegan Rd
    Deerfield, IL, 60015
    (847) 945-6666
    At one time this stand was excellent but has declined in recent years. Notable for the fact that they serve Sherman's Ice Cream.

    Portillos
    700 Lake Cook Rd.
    Deerfield, IL 60015
    (847)597-0010
    Deerfield outpost of Chicago based chain.

    Bannockburn

    Dogout
    Bannockburn Green Shopping Plaza
    Route 22 and Waukegan Rd
    Bannockburn, IL 60015
    (847) 317-0347
    They serve hot dogs without natural casing at "North Shore" prices. Geared toward kids. No thanks. (per Ram4)

    Lake Forest

    The Left Bank
    659 N Bank Ln
    Lake Forest, IL, 60045
    (847) 234-4770

    This is not a traditional Chicago style hot dog stand. They serve Chili Dogs, Polish and Sloppy Joes. I am pretty sure the dogs are skinless which is not my favorite but the place is worth peeking into if you are hungry.

    RIP

    Mage's
    4925 Dempster

    Great post. A slight typo:
    Poochie's Hot Dogs
    3832 Dempster St
    Skokie, IL 60076
    (847) 673-0100

    Also - Hot dog Island on Dempster is closed.
    Also - another post indicated that Ira's in Northbrook is closed and will become Wolfy's.

    One of the owners of Ira's is my cousin's father-in law. I knew he sold Ira's, but I didn't know it's going to be a Wolfie's. Considering that I might be working down the street from there later this year (I hope), this will be one of my lunch places.

    Dear Franks at Pfingsten and Willow is excellent. I prefer it to the one in Deerfield. It was previously U Dawg U.

    Michael's in HP was my hot dog stand growing up. I remember it from the time it had just the counter and a couple tables along the south wall. I remember countless meals there after Little League games, for birthday parties, Bar Mitzvahs, etc. I finally introduced my wife to Michael's last year when we were back up in HP for something. I was amazed that the same photos are still on the walls! Was fun to see some of my friends, their siblings, etc. 20-25 years ago...

    To continue the sidebar, I'm guessing the correct spelling comes not from the ENGLISH rule of "i before e," but from the GERMAN word "wienerwurst," or sausage from Vienna (or Wien, as Vienna is called in Austria).

    Reminds me of my college days, when I was hitchhiking from Zagreb to Vienna. On my hitchhiking sign, I wrote "Wein," so it looked like I was asking for a ride to get some wine. That wouldn't have been bad, but Vienna was our destination. We got there anyway.

    Yes...Ronnie is Correct on the name. My aunt and uncle owned it and i would work there when I came back for college breaks, vacations, etc and then on Saturday when i graduated and had a regular corporate job. Great memories.

    The plan was/is to demolish everything to the corner and put up a strip center. Not sure what the hold up is.

    D's Haute Dogs is a welcomed addition to Winnetka. Decent dogs and friendly staff. On the east side of the tracks I hope it gets the much needed foot traffic to say afloat. Song O Sixpence around the corner closed and the new cupcake shop a few doors down does not seem busy. These are tough times.

    Not sure if it qualifies for the RIP section, but the dogs and sausages at the Best Kosher Outlet on Deerfield Road were the best around.

    Another RIP is Fine's Red Hots, which was on Skokie Valley next to New York Bagel and Bialys in the shadow of the old Strike and Spare Bowling Alley and Edens Theater. And of course, there was the Fluky's outpost at Dundee and Landwehr.

    When Little Louies relocated a few doors down, it really lost its magic.

    Isn't there a dog/gyro place on the Southwest corner of Phingsten and Dundee by the Upper Crust Bagel location?

    Many old school HP'ers still refer to Michael's as Nathan's.

    The west end of VC where Dear Franks is Niles. The east end of VC is Skokie. I'm not sure where the boundary line is within the shopping center.

    Now, what I'd really like is a spreadsheet, or a set of codes for each place:
    * Condiments: Minimal (e.g. Gene & Jude's) vs Garden
    * Notable condiments: Neon relish, sport peppers, celery salt as default, anything else notable
    * Fries: Shoestring vs thick; skin on? fresh-cut?
    * Char?
    * Casing?
    * Poppy seeds on bun?

    I don't want to go beyond dog and fries, but seeing "cG-fTSF" (condiments:Garden, fries: thick, skin-on, fresh-cut) could be valuable

    Yes...Ronnie is Correct on the name. My aunt and uncle owned it and i would work there when I came back for college breaks, vacations, etc and then on Saturday when i graduated and had a regular corporate job. Great memories.

    The plan was/is to demolish everything to the corner and put up a strip center. Not sure what the hold up is.


    OK did a little recognizance drive-by a few hours ago. I did a peek through the windows. Sadly, the place is a mess. However, I'd really kill for the Sprite/Tab sign hanging on the wall behind the counter. I would have taken photos, but the camera on my phone sucks and the sunlight glare messed everything up.

    Didn't this place go under a different name before it closed?

    If you mean Village Crossing Shopping Center then they are in Niles. Is there another in Skokie?


    The west end of VC where Dear Franks is Niles. The east end of VC is Skokie. I'm not sure where the boundary line is within the shopping center.


    Hence the name "Village Crossing".

    The Works, in Talisman Village Shopping Center in Glenview has been vending dogs since April 1976.

    Gone, but not forgotten in Niles are Tommy Tucker's and Tasty Pup, both on Milwaukee Avenue.

    Dear Franks has been a got-to for my neighborhood friends for years, even as Jeff Mages' U Dawg U. Alot of the staff is still there, too.

    I think they've got great chardogs, polish and an excellent grilled salami. Their burgers are pretty damn good, and "everything" includes kraut on the burgers and dogs.

    Plus - they have Coke now instead of Pepsi which is huge for a purist like me.

    I don't know if Lincolnwood meets the strict guidelines for the North Shore, but surely you'll make an exception for the inimitable Bunny Hutch! I believe it is already open for business this season.

    Well, the north branch of the Chicago River runs through Lincolnwood. :D

    Tasty Pup recently relocated (after being closed for years) to Park Ridge. They're in Uptown on summit, right near the train station in what used to be a Planet Smoothie. Apparently, it's the same ownership as the old Niles location, although I never tried it back then.

    and what about Irvings (for red hot lovers)?
