About Us


Chicago Dogs was incorporated in 1998 under the name of CHI-DOGS, Inc. The President of CHI-DOGS, Inc. is Anne Chesin and the VP of Operations is Bruce Chesin. Our operating philosophy is as follows:

  • Have a customer-oriented operation providing fast and efficient service
  • Serve fresh quality food products
  • Provide a clean well maintained establishment
  • Have some fun!

We opened our first "Chicago Dogs" operation in 1999 at the Minnesota State Fair. We are located in "The Gardens", which is the beer gardens located on Dan Patch Ave. and Underwood St., which is about 2 blocks west of the main entrance on Snelling Ave. Due to the popularity of "Chicago Dogs" at the Minnesota State Fair, in 2004 we decided to take our show on the road. We purchased a concession trailer and started bringing "Chicago Dogs" to county fairs, art shows, special events and private office and weekend parties. We sold the concession trailer in 2011. In 2005, we started to do on-site catering to office and industrial sites around the Twin Cities. We served in office or lunch areas for different companies.

In 2006 we opened a sit down and take away hot dog shop in downtown Stillwater at 402 North Main Street. We remodeled the shop over the winter and re-opened the shop as "Chicago Dogs" in April of 2007.



About Our Food


Our signature menu items are the Chicago style hot dog and the Italian beef sandwich. We use Vienna 100% all beef hot dogs.

A Chicago style hot dog consists of a Vienna hot dog served on a poppy seed bun and topped with brown mustard, onions, sweet relish, tomatoes, cucumbers, sport peppers, dill pickle spear and celery salt.

When a Chicago Style Dog is ordered it is called "dragging it through the garden".

Our Italian beef sandwich consists of a heaping amount of Italian beef served on a fresh French roll covered with seasoned Italian gravy and smothered with grilled onions and peppers, giardinera vegetable relish and sport peppers.
