I have been visiting Byron's since 1983 and I still love the place. This is the first place I visit when I get off the plane form Shanghai. The Hotdogs and Polish are second to none. I will drive four hours one way to have one of each in

I used to favor another dog shack until Byron's moved into my neighborhood, in Forest Park. I visit Byron's Madison Ave. location at least once a month now, because they make a perfect Chi-Town dog and the service is outstanding. I've enjoyed jumbo dogs dragged through the garden and topped with celery salt, served by people who treat me extremely well - they pay attention to every customer. Best of all, I can go in there, tie on my feed bag and eat inexpensively. I'm not a fat person, but I could be if I tried hard. They even give away free balloons to little kids. Many dog shacks use Vienna hot dogs but without the best condiments of good quality, no one can be like Byron's. I LOVE the nuclear-green relish. Visually, it's a real kick, and the tomatoes and pickles are a-plenty. Don't miss a perfect dog, served up by mid-westerners who actually like people. Go there. Thank me later.

Pros: Delicious, fresh food, generous sizes, excellent varierty on the menu

Cons: I wish I could go there every day but I can't. That is the only downside.

I am a hotdog connoisseur! I have eaten at almost every hotdog stand in Chicago and the Burbs and the best hotdog is Chicago is Byron?s. The place is small and could best be described as a ?dumpy shack,? with a lot of character. Enough about the ambiance. The hotdog is loaded with every kind of condiment you can put on a Chicago dog. And I am not talking about heaps of chili, or slices of bacon, or gooey cheese, or any other crazy west coast nonsensical idea of good hotdog (Pinks). I am talking about a Chicago dog that is stretched to the max.with tomatoes, cucumbers, pickles, relish, mustard, onions and sport peppers

No question that this is the place for hot dogs... but they have the best burger around as well! Toppings are always fresh and these guys really know what they're doing. Also, for a dive, it is clean and friendly. A must-visit for Chicagoans.

Pros: Great food, fast service, location.

Cons: No place to sit down unless it is summer.

"North Wrigleyville" is a real stretch for this "unsavory" location on Irving and Sheridan. Classic Chicago Greek guy and what might be his wife run the show. You inevitably ask yourself " I wonder if they live together after slinging dogs all day" could you imagine? Can't answer that one, did not want to ask. Their hook is Green Peppers and a mountain of chopped iceberg lettuce on top of the usual fixings ( electric green relish, sport peppers, celery salt...) Fresh thin cut fries were above average but flat soft drink was no good! Dirty beady-eyed pigeons starred me down on one of two grimmy red picnic tables as I tried to dine Alfresco-style outside. Thought I was in a Alfred Hitchcock movie from 1950 something, not pleasent. No way do you take out-of-town company here to experience a Chicago-style dog. Face the facts, it's all about the schtick, and the two super-dawg characters or the foul-mouthed "gangsters" at wiener circle are far more memorable. Sorry Byron, tasty dog, but your overrated.

What can I say...... WOW! What a dog...... nothing better than stumpling over to Byrons after a Cubs game and throwing a dog down my throat! Perfect example of shit-hole having the best food! If they sold Oldstyle, I would sleep in the back! Tickler strikes again...

The greatest institution ever created. Best hot dog I ve ever had! Nothing better than after tying one on at the cubs game and stuffing my face w/ a dog while I wander aimlessly to my apt.

Pros: Real chicago dogs

Byron's is only challenged by Bill's Hot Dog Stand, an Evanston legend just north of Howard St. on Asbury (Western) and Home Depot/North Avenue. Dog Lovers can't beat these 3 locations for the best in the city...unless you're in Wrigley and the Cubs are winning!

That was, may still be, their motto. Byron's is the place I dream of whenever I consider having a hot dog. I live in the burbs now and Byron's is one of the joints I miss the most!

Byron's has one of the best hamburgers in the Chicago area! Great service at a "no-frills" joint.

the only true chicago dog can be found here!!!! right down to outside seating, salads, celery salt, and hot peppers on the dog. Will be the only place you will yearn to eat a hot dog.

Pros: only true chicago dog, al fresco seating, pigeons

If you are visiting Wrigley Field this should be a stop, before or after a game. This place is for anyone who has never had a "Chicago dog". The hot dog is grilled to perfection and then they add a salad on top of the hot dog. Not a place for the dainty eaters! Fries are a bit greasy, but worth it with the dog! Definetly a place I would go again and tell friends!!

This makes a nice stop on the way to or from Wrigley Field. The location is just far enough away from Wrigley that it won't be packed with fans pre- or post-game. Take the Red Line and get off at Sheridan and enjoy a dog, then hike back down to Wrigley. The Chicago Dog here is packed high with extras, but the dog is meaty, hot and fresh once you find your way to it.

Byron's is one of the more revered hot dog stands around. The menu ranges far and wide through all that Chicago fast food stands are known for: Vienna hot dogs, Polish sausage, hamburgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, et al. The hot…
