A little walk-up shack on the UIC Campus with no seating, Jim's Original doesn't look like much. But a solid rendition of a Vienna beef Chicago-style dog with fries sets you back just $2.85, and the grilled onions are a nice touch. Open 24 hours a day, Jim's Original is just as good for lunch as late night munchies.

Jim's is tucked right next to the Dan Ryan expressway, and is a late night mecca for college students and drunk folk alike. They haven't closed in decades, and constantly have a huge, steaming pile of onions on the grill. You can get a burger for around $3 (which kind of resembles a hockey puck), but it's astonishingly tasty when you've had a few too many at the bar.
