Even though this Evanston stalwart has been going strong for more than 35 years on the strength of its “Dippin' Dog,” an ownership change in 2005 showed that the Champ still has some tricks up his sleeve. If bacon isn't enough to whet your appetite for salt and fat, get it served up in country-fried bites—or try the pickle chips and gyros, also lovingly deep-fried. And while the hand-cut fries are fantastic naked, the ever-changing lineup of dipping sauces (choices like miso mayo, spicy olive and tomato basil feta will give you some idea of what's in store) will leave no doubt in your mind that this humble hot dog joint still reigns large.
