The Wiener's Circle
2622 N Clark St (btwn Drummond Pl & Wrightwood Ave)
Chicago, IL 60614
Many businesses have come and gone in this neighborhood since the '80s (Blockbuster, McDonald's, a post office, numerous bars), but one thing has never changed: a famous hot dog stand called The Weiner Circle. For just a few bucks you can get a classic Vienna Red Hot served on a poppy seed bun and topped with The Magnificent Seven and grilled onions. You can also get a side of late-night profanity from the staff -- a tradition that started back in the early '90s when owner Larry Gold tried to get the attention of a drunk patron by yelling, “Hey. Asshole.” Its beloved reputation for vulgarity is still alive and well, and some customers even pay for it by tipping.
