Wolfy's | Rogers Park/West Rogers Park | American | Restaurant
Iconic West Rogers Park hot dog stand.

Our Review

Fronted by a Paul Bunyan-size hot dog speared on a 35-foot-tall two-tine serving fork, Wolfy’s has been pleasing West Rogers Park residents, Mather High School students, and those in the know for five generations. A steamed poppy-seed bun cushions a natural-casing Vienna Beef hot dog and well-balanced array of traditional Chicago dog accompaniments: tomato, relish, chopped onion, mustard, and a pickle spear dusted with celery salt. Tasty as the dog may be, it’s hard to resist the smoky seduction of a char-grilled all-beef Polish, caramelized onion lending a note of sweetness to the aggressively spiced sausage. Thin, crisp fries, burgers, gyros, and a nice representation of hot-dog-stand usual suspects round out the offerings, though I stick with the Polishes and dogs. Parking, plentiful seating, and friendly, efficient service are all bonuses.
