This is not a review of the present Parky's, just an observation. I was a kid living in Broadview during WWII when there was a gentleman selling hot dogs out of a trailer on the corner of 1st Avenue and Roosevelt Road. The name of his

Wow, a lot of 5 star reviews for this place. I just recently discovered Parky's and while I like the place a lot, I reserve 5 stars for a place like Parky's that no one knows about so there's not as many people in line! Still, with all

I love Parky's ever since I was a kid. Great hot dogs, great people & still the original building. You won't regret it, check them out.

I haven't eaten here in years, but I used to come all the time throughout high school. I love that the fries have to be double bagged because of all the grease. I'm a vegetarian now, but back in the day I would drive out there just to get two jumbo dogs and a big bag of fries. If you love hot dogs or sausage, go to Parkys!

Need a great french fry fix? then this is the place to get it! Their Fry's are made with fresh potatoes and are just the best with a hot dog with the works!!!

i've been going to parky's since i first started dating my now-ex girlfriend, Alison. She was the vision of crumbling beauty, lost hope, the American dream gone straight to hell. She first introduced me to Parky's early in our stormy and short-lived relationship together. She lived over on Maple, near Philander's, where we frequently enjoyed masochistic old jazz torch songs in their smoky barroom. I remember courting her in spring, and sitting with her on what of the outdoor benches, relishing our chilli cheese dogs and the bright, warm sunny weather. But there was a darkness beneath the facade of normalcy and contentment. At that moment at Parky's, she pulled out David Ratkoff's book Fraud, and i new she identified with every word in his troubling yet insightful distillation of self-loathing and alienation in America. I was not aware at that point that she had developed a huge habit, one that led her into marginalized communities of drunkards, prostitutes, g**g foot soldiers, and off course, dealers. A nice, suburban upbringing hid a truer, more macabre reality that pervaded her worldview, and which was at once terrifying and well as pitifully endearing. Parky's, in some way, normalized our troubled lives, which were both quite empty and misguided. A chilli cheese dog was all that mattered on that beautiful sunday afternoon- a respite from the harsh and vivid insanity that would characterize much of our time together. I know she's nine months sober now, though we have not had any contact for three years. I hope she's ok today... i hope she's found meaning and acceptance, peace and love. I still eat at Parky's today, without her... but sometimes, when the weather's just right, and i sip my fanta amidst big bites into my chilli cheese dog, i think of her...and i feel her next to me still.

Cons: Never got my t-shirt

Two favs in Chicago. Gene & Judes and Parkys. Have to give the nod to Parky's! Dog close to Gene & Judes, Parkys fries are the best of two. Also Parkys has true Chicago feel. Nothing like a seat on the picnic bench during a warm summer day, and Parkys food. Have been to Super Dog and parkys is a cut above that stand! Italian Beef at parkys is good also, but it's the dog and fries that brings me back. They have cut down the size of their order of fries. Ask for fries "crispy" if you like them that way. A tip, take Madison west, turn first right and come into Parkys from alley. Parking in alley is better. Parkys can be crowded at lunch, if you are there by 11:00am or after 1:00pm. in and out is quick and parking is easier.

I just tried Parky's again for the first time in about 12 years, (don't get to Forest Park much).

That said, I would recommend Parky's as one of the best non-Vienna (David Berg) hot dog stands to be found in the Chicago area. They get a lot of things right. (Outstanding home-cut fries in the bag, no-frills service, 'hot-dog-hut' ambience with thier funky glass building, and very good polish and hot dogs.)

Finally their resonable prices and relatively ample parking for the area make this a place worth driving out of your way. Again, probably the closest non-Vienna hot dog stand to compare with Jimmy's or Gene and Judes.

Pros: Delicious fries, Funky building, best non-Vienna HD

Cons: , just a tiny cut below, Jimmy's ,Gene n Judes

Fries are a tastey greasy glob, tasty fresh-cut with skin. Classic.

I've been going to parky's since I was young and I loved them then because they are so greasy and they clump together. I have been back there since and they are still as good.

I have been gone from the Chicago area for 10 years and Parky's is still one of the things I miss the most!! We loved them as kids and it was a special treat, and then I was lucky enough to work down the street for a long time!!! Best around!!!

Pros: Tast, Texture, Toppings

Parky's is the best. Used to be in Berwyn also and that's where my mom took us often for a special lunch, a hot dog "ou way" on top of a lunch sack full of wonderful, greasy, handcut fries. Moved away 30 yrs ago and still head to Parky's when I am in Chicago.

We've been going to Parky's since I was a kid. My parents actually went their on dates, so I was raised on their hotdogs and fries. While over the years they have changed the hotdogs the fries are AMAZING! We still go there now that we live out west more, we drive about an hour and a half every so often just for those greasy fries that seep through the bags... mmmmm...

In Short
This compact orange-and-white A-frame has just a couple of stools at the window for seating, plus outdoor picnic tables during warm weather. Folks don't mind waiting for David Berg hot dogs--shorter and plumper than…
