Transplanted Chicagoans haven't had many options – besides Portillo's in Buena Park – if we wanted real Chicago style hot dogs...until now. Just Hot Dogs is a great new Chicago style hot dog stand that serves 'em just the way Chicagoans like 'em – poppy seed bun, bright green relish, onions, tomatoes, sport peppers and mustard...never ketchup. They even wrap them with the fries on top. They have chili dogs too, for the non-traditionalists out there, and despite the name of the place, there are also Italian style beef sandwiches on the menu as well.
It's basically a drive-thru but there are a couple of tables by the walk-up window out back. Small place but big on charm. Friendly folks that pack every order with extra smiles. They recently started a Friday night car show that attracts about 60 cars. There's room for plenty more though. Great group of people who bring their own chairs and just hang out - eating good food, enjoying each other's cars and even running a weekly raffle for gift cards and other prizes.
The Just Hot Dogs stand is right between the Pep Boys and the Ken Crane's at 15223 Beach Blvd., just north of the 405 in Westminster, across from the Toyota dealer. The car show happens Friday nights from 6-9. Stop by for a dog or two and tell them Frank sent you.
