Hot Dog of the Day: Susie's Drive-Thru

It's National Hot Dog Month! Today's dog of the day is from Susie's Drive-Thru.
Susie's Drive-Thru

Susie’s Drive Thru This Northwest Side stand is best known for its milkshakes—more than 40 flavors from Banana Rum to Green River—rather than its hot dogs, and for good reason: The dogs here are average at best. The traditional Chicago dog ($2.24) is sassed up with cucumber and green pepper slices, but it’s boiled, bland and otherwise pretty lifeless. You'd be better off getting your caloric overload from a shake and Susie’s beloved cheese fries—served inside an edible taco shell bowl and, if you need more, topped with gyros, bacon and even Philly cheese steak ($4.24–$7.81).—Judy Sutton Taylor
