George's looks like your standard hot dog/hamburger/gyro shop, and to an extent it is. There is absolutely no pretense to the place. But the food is remarkable.

Yes, it is a cheap, greasy griller guaranteed to clog some arteries. So what? Just don't eat here every day.

Easier said that done.

The burgers, I think, are the best I've ever had in Chicago. Thinking of the grilled onions he puts in them makes my mouth water as I write this, and there's something cocaine-like to the addictiveness they cause.

And to top it all off, George is charming and just a really nice guy. This is the ultimate mom n' pop local business. Go support them!

Maybe when they clean the place up, even then they could use to increase the size of the product. I dined there just this past weekend, 5/07 and found the dining area and restroom filthy. Its one thing to be a "hole in the wall joint" its another to make a concerted effort! Frightening to think what it looks like on the other side of the counter!

In terms of the product, the hot dogs are small. Heck, make the trip 3/4 of mile north on Damen to Costco where you can enjoy a 1/4 Vienna beef hotdog and soda for $1.50.

As a long time Chicago native, I cherish the Mom and Pop hotdog stand but I don't cherish eating out of a garbage can.
