After Demon Dogs closed, Gold Coast became king of the Chicago-style dog.

Char dog is what I would request as my last meal

They do the Chicago dog right.

Best grilled hot dog in the city.

Dogs are on the small side. Fries are mediocre at best.

Tell your mom to get her own basket of french fries. You're not going to want to share.

Pretty decent burger :-)
Serious Eats
The char dog at Gold Coast Dogs is an excellent introduction to the world of Chicago-style hot dogs. The ends are sliced, so that when tossed on the hot grill they flare out wildly.

Cheese fries suck.
Time Out Chicago
GCD dogs are natural-casing Vienna Beef, you can get them char-grilled, and they have the weird splayed-ends thing, setting these Chicago-style dogs apart.

Greatest Char-dog Ever. Extra for extra sport peppers.

...grab a Beer Bratwurst with Sauerkraut. It's really good... Also visit their site at and read up on the History of the Hot Dog.

Gold Coast Dogs splits the ends of their hot dogs before char-grilling them to crispy perfection, giving a unique blooming flower-petal look to their otherwise classic Chicago style dog.

While a steam-simmered (not boiled) hot dog is preferred among connoisseurs of the Chicago-style dog, grilling is also an acceptable cooking method.

The bratwurst usually takes a few minutes longer, but it's well worth it!
