Howie’s Top Dog is a Chicago style Hot Dog joint with a bunch of other things to eat like Burgers, Baked Potatoes and Gyros. Yes, it’s one of those Vienna Hot Dog places with all the Vienna products. I can handle that since I was here for a Hot Dog or was I?
Three of these things don’t belong here, well at least standout. On the menu, there’s a Diet Dog that is served “1/2 For Here & 1/2 To Go”, pretty funny. Also, maybe you want to get married…that’s right you can get married while sharing a Chili Dog. It’s only $36 but restrictions do apply. The Bilge Pump, which rounds out the 3 outsiders is sandwich that is a Burger, Italian Beef and Gyro served with sides of Tzatziki & Au jus and Nacho Cheese slathered all over it. The sandwich falls into the Luther Burger (Burger with Donuts as Buns) category for me. I won’t crave it, it didn’t blow my mind with intense flavor but it is something that needs to be experienced. So, are you ready to get Bilge Pumped?
