Editorial Review of Huey's Hotdogs

In case having "hotdog" in its name didn't lend enough insight into this restaurant's bun-filler of choice, the space's ketchup-red and mustard-yellow walls scream frankfurter a thousand times over. This Andersonville joint dishes up some of the best dogs around. Served charred or steamed, these Vienna-Beef beauties can be ordered any way you desire—from plain Jane to dragged-through-the-garden Chicago-style to bib-worthy double chili-cheese. The menu also includes hamburgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, polish sausages and salads. Weekdays feature daily specials like the popular bleu-cheese burger with fries and a drink for $6 on Monday.

Huey’s dogs more than hold their own against other great spots in the city, but the restaurant trounces the competition when it comes to ample seating. During the winter, grab your dog and head to the adjacent dining room (complete with a kiddie table). If you’re lucky, you might even snag the coveted window seat. During the summer, mosey outside and plunk down at one of the half-dozen tables that line the patio. The restaurant’s location, tucked just off Clark Street on Balmoral, lets you people watch while you munch on crispy fries, but if you happen to spill ketchup down the front of your shirt, no one will notice. An intercom system outdoors calls out orders as they’re ready.

For dessert, grab a Rockstar Milkshake. Made the old-fashioned way with plenty of ice cream and crushed candies, this slurpable treat lives up to its name.

Average cost: <$10
