Time Out says

The Hot Dog Box started as a pop-up suasage stand inside a shipping container in Bronzeville, but it's quickly grown into a beloved Chicago institution. Building on their success, local musician Bobby Morelli and his daughter Brooklyn have opened a second location in Portage Park, serving their signature creations out of a kitchen that dressed up to look like a shipping container. With indoor seating, this location can operate year-round, serving everything from Chicago-style dogs to fancy filet mingon steak dogs dressed up with toppings. There's even a smoked alligator hot dog named after the street (Milwaukee Avenue) where this outpost is located.
