Murphy's Red Hots This unimposing hot dog stand could be easily missed if you aren't paying attention, but you'll want to pop in for a no-fuss Chicago dog and fries. Opt for the foot-long dog ($5) and you'll find it split in half and chargrilled before taking a walk through the garden. The addition of cucumbers is a strange twist on the Chicago dog and adds way too much crunch to the already hard-to-manage dog, which takes two hands to eat. Instead, stick with the regular-sized dog and skip the cucumbers for a winning Chicago-style hot dog.—Erin Delahanty
