Bannockburn, IL

Tucked away in a medieval-looking strip mall, The Dogout slings hot dogs and burgers like a '50s diner, right down to its black-and-white tiling and made-to-order menu. A couple spare bucks will get your multiple fully-loaded dogs with all the staple toppings or a juicy burger. What's not to be missed here, though, are the crinkle0cut french fries, always serves with thick and creamy cheese dipping sauce instead of ketchup.
