Fat Johnnie`s Famous Red Hots, 7242 S Western Ave, Chicago, IL 60636-3637, Chicago
Yup he is still here.
Yes, cash only for the best hotdogs in chicago!!
Yes they are open yr round
No catering Just exceptional red hots at a walk-up stand Been serving since 1970 Outstanding!!
I believe they are all beef David Berg Red Hots I've been coming here for over 40 Years and there food quality has never changed once and prices are the best you'll find for the quality you get here. Definitely not overpriced bland dogs like portillos and I travel to Fat Johnie's every chance I can and I'm coming from about 15 minutes from Illinois Indiana border definitely worth the trip if you want the best Red Hots. It's the best Red Hots I ever had hope it helps you
I've been eating here all my life it's a great place for a quick bite to eat.
The staff is friendly and fun to talk with. The food was great and service even better.
I love this place to death. Great taste and over all a spot to grab a quick bite..... But I would appreciate gloves on when making my dog. I havnt gotten sick but I keep going back because they do a great job at their craft.
Best hotdogs and sausage sandwiches
Love their dogs...
Average not exciting
Best hotdog u can get
Classic Chicago hot dog joint
One of the best REAL hot dogs stands in Chicago. The dogs are great. For any hotdog fan it’s a must. I know the north siders will never step food here.
Love Johnnie's! Been there since I was a kid.
Known John since we were kids, best dogs In the city, hands down.
The best polish around.
Great hotdogs and fast service. Don't get intimidated by the look of the place. Parking is on the street and there is a picnic table outside if you want to eat there.
Been coming to this place since 1990! I'm glad to see they got some new blood in there to keep things fresh and speedy!
This is some primo chicago hotdog right here. These hot dogs are some real bangers.
I'm telling YOU!!!!! Fat Johnnie's food & people are just thee BEST!! I've moved away, but on my visits back home I always come here. I started coming as a senior in high school (1984) and now I STILL rave about it and bring my own kids now! You certainly CANNOT judge this book by its cover! Love y'all Fat Johnnie's!!
Best hot dogs nationwide. Been eating Jonnies since the 70 s.
Good hot dogs and chili dogs, but bad neighborhood, and the only seating is at a picnic table in front of a neighbor's house. If you're white, expect to get harassed by the locals for money or more. Just get it to go and all is well.
Great hot dog place 47 years,and still going
Grew up loving this place!! Things haven't changed! Lol Gotta have the chili cheese polish and iconic chicago dog
This was just ok ... but it was winter I will try it again this summer . Hot dog just ok
Fat Johnnie's is The place to go for premium Beef Hot Dogs And Beef Polish Sausage to go! Conveniently located where you get your food to go where prices are reasonable Also! Try Fat Johnnie's Today!!
I've been to FJ's about 500 times since 1972, always,always on the money. If you don't like Fat Johnnie's, you don't like food. Chili dog with onions and mustard on the bottom. I know I've had 700 of those babies! 😊❤❤
Fantastic! We ordered the chili dog with the works and every bite was bursting with complementing flavors. The peppers on top add a unique component that sets it apart from any other chili dog that we tried during our stay in Chicago. Special call out to the seasoned cucumber--I could eat a plate of those all on their own. Not only was the chili dog delicious, but Fat Johnnie was so kind and welcoming. I told him I was visiting and heard he was the best and asked what I should order. He said, "Get her the chili dog with the works!"Fat Johnnie's was such an awesome experience that we will be making another stop before we leave to go back home. And for a short four day visit, that says a lot!
Best flavor Hot Dog/Polish dressing I've ever tasted since I started going in 1987 and still in 2020 ..... NEED ONE IN THE 100s close to me
Low prices, GREAT food, fast service. The Mighty Dog is the most amazing dog in Chicago.
Probably the best hot dog in Chicago!
Amazing hot dogs. The Cheese Dog is perfect.
Still the best after all these years
Great hot dogs. Gets real busy around lunch time.
He's been there for many, many years. His drink menu changed, no more major brand soft drinks. Last time I was there, it was his birthday. He was training a young couple. He sat back while they did the work. It made me think that maybe he was retiring. The hot dog I got wasn't as good as it used to be. Tasted different, less amount of eve on it, also no more pickles. Haven't been back since, passing by quite often, not open for business all day like it used to be.
Great chili cheese dogs for a great price. Definitely recommend stopping by
Always one of my Chicago favorites. Love the tamale sundae and mighty dogs! Service is always great. Food always feesh, hot and deyond delicious!
One of the best lunches I've eaten in recent memory. We had an Italian sausage sandwich, a Bangkok sandwich and chili cheese tater tots. Enough to satisfy two very hungry guys. The Hawaiian bread hot dog buns are to die for, the portions are generous, and the shady beer garden is very comfortable. Great chili, crispy tots, delicious sausage that is amply cheesed. I enjoyed this more than the very good Wurst beer garden in the Arts District.
Always the best. I have been going there for 40 years. It doesn't look like much from the outside. But the food that comes out of there is always good. A staple of the Southside.
Awesome Chicago Style Hot Dogs. Be sure to try the Suicide drink when you are there.
Meet with with Fat Johnnie for good laugh.
Very good Hot dogs
He has great hot dogs very great hot dogs I love
Not more to say but the quintessential Hot Dog stand !!!!A childhood favorite and I still travel there for my hot dog fix.Try a $uper Fat One ....or 2 .
Great Chicago Dogs at a great price.
The best Chicago style hot dogs I’ve ever had. These hot dogs are to die for - one just isn’t enough!
Great hotdogs!! Great tamales with chili too!!
Best hot dogs in the chi, try the super fat one chili and cheese delicious.
Fat Johnny's is always a great meal never had a disappointing meal from them
Absolutely the best hot dog in America, bar none
Very slept on place in the cut between car dealerships. Very delicious and decently priced. Will be returning in the future.
The Best hot dog an polish in town been eating there since the seventh five
I highly recommend the Mighty Dog!A tamale in a bun topped with a hotdog with Chicago style fixings, topped off with chili!When I looked at it I thought "Damn, this thing is heavy; I'll never be able to finish it."But I did 😜.And wanted more!
Ignore the exterior. Yes, it looks like a semi run down shack. This is unimportant. They've got good dogs/polishes with a variety of toppings. You get cucumber instead of pickles. It was really tasty. One of the best dogs in the city.
