The standard Chicago dog is very good here and cheap. The game and special sausages are noteworthy and kind of spendy. The duck fat fries are very noteworthy. You have to be a crazed hot dog and sausage lover to spend time in line for one of Doug's gourmet speciality sausages or the standard Chicago Dogs. Also, not having a lot else to do with your time helps. If somehow you are able to get through the line in under 30 minutes then count yourself one of the lucky ones. Otherwise, you must bring someone to talk to about the current state of the Cubs, bring a book, talk incessantly on your Iphone (most likely the people that come here all have an iphone), do your hour yoga routine or just meditate while gazing at the head in front of you.
