Wiener's Circle

2622 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL - (773) 477-7444

A close up of a Wiener's Circle red hot shows just how pretty the picalilli is, and how fresh the tomatoes are. Note also the natural casing on the Vienna frank ... and the poppy seeds dotting the soft Rosen's bun.

A Wiener's Circle char dog, ordered without condiments for the picture's sake. Look at that crunchy skin!

Like all the great red hot shops in Chicago, The Wiener's Circle is a humble place.
