Devil Dawg's

It was getting pretty late on Friday night. Noam and I were on our way to join some friends at Kelly's Pub. Some of you may recall that my summary of Kelly's Pub was cheap appetizers. I was looking forward to a plate of overly cheesy nachos, but the kitchen was closed when we got there. The friendly owner came over and bought us all a round of drinks, making the trip to Kelly's worthwhile. However, when 1:30AM rolled around, the lights came on (basically telling us to get the hell out). Still a little early to call it a night, Noam and I decided to grab some late night eats. Luckily for us, on the walk home we came across Devil Dawg's (no website, on the corner of Sheffield and Webster).

Logistics
There's not much to Devil Dawg's. They've got a few fryers and a grill. The whole building is one small room. You walk in at one end of the counter, order, pay, and step outside to wait for your food (I could see this being annoying in the winter). They've got a few picnic tables outside if you want to eat there, but all the food is served to go as far as I can tell. From ordering to eating it took about 8 minutes. When we got there, there wasn't any line, but as we left it was maybe 10 people deep.


The menu is mostly hot dogs with slight variations, french fries, and steak burgers. They often run specials for students, but even without a deal, a hot dog is $2.25 which is pretty cheap. If you want one of their fancier dogs (i.e. chili cheese) it might run you $3. At Gene and Jude's, the dog's are cheap but small. Here I got a pretty cheap, normal sized dog.

The Food
Noam and I kept it simple and just ordered two Chicago style hot dogs. It had all the right components in the right proportions. The dog didn't have any charring, but it did have a very nice snap when you bit through the casing. One issue was that the bun was a little soggy. I think what happened was that when they spooned out the relish, they got a lot of the liquid.

The Chicago Style Hot Dog

Overall
Devil Dawg's is very simple. I liked that we were served pretty quickly late at night and that we didn't have to fight any major crowd (especially considering the bars had just closed). The dog was very standard plus a few points for the snap and minus a few points for the soggy bun. I'm giving Devil Dawg's 2.5 out of 5 Pearls.
