So many stories about hot dogs have gone up this month, you may wonder whether we eat anything else in Chicago. But some of my favorite hot dog stands serve items that are just as good, and in some cases, even better than the dogs.

Though it feels like an establishment that could have been around since the Eisenhower administration, Devil Dawgs actually opened in 2009. Located just steps away from DePaul's campus in Lincoln Park, it is a nearly flawless Chicago stand.
