Cicero >Henry's Drive-In
“Great hot dogs, gravy bread, milkshakes, breaded mushrooms and more.”
Best hot dogs in Chicagoland! Been eating here for years and always love it.
Best Hot Dog on Illinois Historic Route 66.
Long ago there were many great hot dog stands all over the Chicago area but those days are gone.
Now it you really want a traditional Chicago Dog with real Fries (traditionally fresh slammed fries come with your hot dog - you don't have to order a side or pay extra - Hear that you Chicago Style - Wannabes!) you're left with few choices.
Henry's has been open for years and maintains the Chicago Hot Dog Stand tradition well. Make it a stop on your RT 66 Tour - Relax and have a Dog - look over the nostalgic photos.
Over the 40+ years I've been going there I've had many items from the menu and not ever been disappointed.

Greasy grub on the go for discriminating hot dog lovers..
A larger-than-life, fry-topped hot dog sign beckons inside this unassuming brick building, where southwest siders snack on cost-conscious, caloric fast food staples at tiny booths. The star of the menu is the Chicago-style hot dog loaded with mustard, onions, a pickle and sport peppers. Other favorites include fish sandwiches, polish sausage, jus-soaked gravy bread and spicy tamales. Perfect for afterwards are soft serve ice cream cones, apple turnovers and fruity slushes.
Doggin It. My first encounter was in 1953. All they served was hot dogs. Expanded meun now. Fries served on the bun. Make sure you eat it that way. In current location since the 40's. Original stand at Austin and Ogden dating back to the 30's. One of my Dad's afterschool haunts. You gotta love a place that's been selling hot dogs for over 60 years.
Like it or leave it. Henry's have been serving hotdogs with fries on top for decades. Either like it, or leave it. I have enjoyed Henry's for years.
