From Hot Dog Stand To

An Authentic Chicago Style Restaurant

The Chicago Dog was born in the great depression as a way for hardworking people to have a hot meal for a nickel. Its recipe is simple: 100% all beef franks piled high with farm fresh toppings, served hot on a fresh poppy seed bun.

We’ve decided to take that nostalgic experience and transform it into a fun family restaurant where you can experience all the flavors of Chicago under one roof, including:

Authentic Chicago-Style Hot Dog

True Chicago Pizza Puffs

Fresh-Cut, Extra Crispy, Never-Frozen Fries

Real Polish and Italian Sausage

Genuine Italian Beef

The Beginning of a dream!

Chicago Dog 42 Snatches Success From A Tragic Fire

The “42” in the name of the business is the birth year of Ronald Dazzo, Sr., Katherine’s dad, who started his first hot dog stand together with his brother in Chicago in the 1950’s, relocating to Arizona some 20 years later. Together they perfected variations on the Chicago dog, which traditionally includes an all-beef frankfurter on a steamed poppy seed bun, with mustard, onions, pickles, pepper and tomato.
