Dogzilla at Byron's

Byron's They had me at Dogzilla. With a name like that, and the promise of a half-pound Vienna Beef frank, the Dogzilla ($4) was meant to be mine.

Shredded iceberg lettuce?) were not only Chicago-style sacrilege but also a messy distraction from the delicious frank.—Laura Baginski
