Editorial Review of Wolfy's

It would be impossible to miss Wolfy's, given the restaurant's giant red hot sign. Go ahead; just try driving by the place without doing a double take.

The funny thing is, Wolfy's doesn't need the screaming, attention-grabbing signage, because it's already got a faithful crowd thanks to its mouth-watering Chicago-style dogs, crispy fries and polish sausages. But the kitsch doesn't stop at the sign. Upon entering the tiny eatery you'll notice a very hungry Mona Lisa, stuffing her face with what is decidedly a Wolfy's dog.

When you manage to avert your eyes toward the menu, you'll notice something on it called a regular dog. But really, this thing is out-of-the-ordinary with its bun-length link wedged between fresh bread and topped with pickle spears, raw onions, tomatoes and peppers. Polish sausages get served up traditionally and are just as filling, if not more, than the regular dogs.

If you've got room, order up a side of crispy fries or giant onion rings. Other items include gyros and burgers, big enough to feed you for days.

Average cost: <$10
