It's been 20 LONG years since we moved away from the BEST hot dogs in the World. Can still taste them!! Also the Polish, and don't forget the famous fries!! Used to have them at least twice a week. After a few cocktails at "Hook's Hut"!!

Jimmy's is the best. Nothin' fancy, but you aint going there for the details, you're going for the dog. Get used to the fast pace: Get in, order quick, and get out. Once you have that steaming hot bag of dogs and fries in your hands, you can't wait to get to your car and taste a little heaven. I grew up and lived in the neighborhood for 40 years. I still go there every time I'm back in Chi-town. A true Chicago landmark.

I have been eating there for 40 years, my grandmother used to take me there on the bus just for the fries. The owners are good people and a good family friends, just don't ask for catsup!!!!!! If you've never been there you don't know what your missing.

The Chicago classic hot dog is the standard for the world. Jimmy's is the creator of the best. Of course, he bans ketshup. Ketshup on a Chicago Dog is like salsa on ice cream. If you insist, the guys at Jimmy's will begrugingly give you packets of the red stuff...and tell you to refrain from putting it on the dog until you leave the premises. I have been a Jimmy dog guy since the opened some 50 years ago. If yoiu come to Chicago and skip Jimmy's, you have missed a lot. But, don' expect some fancy tourist place. This is the legit thing -- no Disney re-creation. As far as the neighborhood, it is fine. Maybe small town or small minded folks have never seen big city blue-collar neighborhood. Mostly a bunch of friendly Hispanic folks. It s great. So fear not.

Someone below wrote 47 years at Jimmy's. I may have that beat. I can't remember what year Jimmy's in the '50's was built but I was there when it was and before that. I lived a block and half south on Pulaski as 1231. The dogs have always been great, the fries super greasy and just as great. That's where we went for a dog. There's nothing anyway ever that can beat a Jimmy's dog. The neighborhood and that corner are really scary these days. The dogs still taste the same, the fries still greasy, the service .. well Jimmy isn't there anymore. Everything but the pepper!

I live in Minnesota- but any time the family and I would go to Chicago to visit Grandma we would stop at Jimmy's. The greasy fries wrapped around one of the best hot dogs I have ever had. Their Supreme tamales to top it off- nothing better. It's been several years since I've been back to the city- but Jimmy's will always be on the list of places to stop while I'm their. It's the Chicago of my youth... on a bun. No mustard!

I've been eating Jimmy's for nearly 20 years and I love it! ALthough in the last few years their are more panhandlers outside, all in all, Jimmy's is bar far original with thier Chicago Style and Fries....Love them fries. Highly recommend, a bit of a dive but the best fast foods.

i have tried hundreds of hotdogs in chicago and i can honestly say that jimmy's is the best in chicago. the hot dogs and polish sausages are perfectly boiled/steamed in porcelain containers at the right temperature, and the buns are steamed just right as to not be too soggy. the combination of the bun, vienna beef dog create the perfect hotdog. when you bite into it you get the snap of the hot dog which releases the wonderful flavors each and every bite. jimmy's does it right...all the time.

When I moved back into the city after many years in the Western suburbs, I was all set to make at least monthly treks to Gene's & Jude's, THE premier hot dog stand of all suburban hot dog stands. A friend took me to Jimmy's one day and waddayaknow!!! The snappy weinies, the soggy buns...the greasy fries...the don't even dare ask for ketchup on your dog...it was all the same! While I would never abandon G&J's completely, it is a comfort to know that I can get the same great taste just 15 minutes away!

45+ years of eating these, my wife can smell the scent in the car the next morning "You went to Jimmy's!" Taste is out of this world, real Vienna Beef dogs and polish, Supreme Tamales are also great. It's worth the 40 mile drive for us to go there. Proud to say my son is a 4th-generation Jimmy's customer! Don't be worried about security, there are Chicago cops in the place eating almost every minute the place is open, and anyone who REALLY knows Chicago knows that Chicago cops NEVER eat in bad restaurants, even if the food is free!

I have great memories of walking hand-in-hand with my big brother to this special little hot dog stand. It's been around since before yours truly was even born so this place has been a big part of our lives. No dining area, just a counter space so walk-in and get those puppies some wings to carry out and enjoy at home or in the car. Good ol Chicago style hot dogs, beef sandwiches and fries. Lots of loyal customers like me think Jimmy's dogs are the best around!

Jimmy's has simply the best hot dogs we've ever tasted. Even though we live in the western suburbs of the Chicago metropolitan area, in Du Page county, we regularly make the one-hour long drive to the city to have hot dogs at Jimmy's.

I think the Viena beef hot dogs and Polish sausages are that good because the way they are steamed in ceramic containers. Jimmy's fries are delicious and plentiful.

While the area around Jimmy's is not great anymore, we've never had any problems eating inside or in the car. Definitely worth it.

Jimmy's Red Hots are the best not only in Chicago but , in the world .
The taste and smell once you have had one will never leave your memory . Don't know if they still use the same ones but , years ago my father made all the french fry baskets that Jimmy's used back then . Just wanted to say I love Jimmy's and anyone who hasn't tried one is missing out on one of the most special things to eat in our life time . Also when I grew up and when ever a date would ask where I would like to go ? Yes , I had two dates drive me from Lake Geneva , Wi to Jimmy's Red hots stand in Chicago !! They were my best dates ever !! Thanks Jimmy !!

Been going there since they opened in 1954. Hot dog and a ton of fries were .25 The family of 7 ate for around $2.00 The're the best. When they burned down several years ago we cried, that was our friend. Needless to say we were thrilled when they reopened. Worth the trip.

As a lifelong Gene & Jude's fan, I must acknowledge that Jimmy's is equally as sincere and authentic, for finding a true Chicago-Style hot dog. The true Chicago dog has mustard, onions, relish, sport pepper & home-cut french fries on top of the dog! (NOT celery-salt, pickles or cucumbers!) Jimmy's even edges Gene and Jude's in two categories: 1. An aluminum-foil bag to keep your dogs warm and 2. They also offer an excellent polish sausage. Jimmy's only liability may be its rough location. Comparing Jimmy's with Gene and Jude's is truly a tossup! Jimmy's is a 1st rate Chicago hot dog stand.
