Cheddar dog at U.B. Dogs

Hot Dog of the Day: U.B. Dogs

It's National Hot Dog Month! Today we're visiting U.B. Dogs in the Loop.


U.B. Dogs The problem with cheese dogs tends to be the cheese. The salty semi-liquid most stands serve too often tastes as real as its yellowy-orange color is natural. The Loop lunchers who crowd U.B. Dogs' small storefront know the cheese on their cheddar dog ($3.75) is Merkts from Little Chute, Wisconsin. Scoop up the excess cheese with some fresh-cut fries, then dig in. The sharp cheddar overwhelms the steamed Vienna dog—even when there’s two on the bun—but keep in mind this hot dog is little more than a vehicle for delicious cheese.—Jake Malooley
