The Hot Dog Guy opens at Chicago French Market

The Chicago French Market (131 N Clinton, 312-575-0306) welcomes The Hot Dog Guy, a new vendor set to open in July.   The unmistakable sights, sounds, smells and tastes of a traditional Chicago hot dog stand will soon infuse the downtown French Market with a bit of traditional Chicago flavor.

The Hot Dog Guy, Chicago’s own Grant Greenberg, is serving up hot dogs and Polish the way Chicagoans prefer: all Vienna Beef products on a poppy seed bun, tomato, onion, hot peppers, mustard, relish, celery salt, and a big pickle spear. He is committed to preserving the authentic Chicago atmosphere and food that goes along with it.

Greenberg is the grandson of a Superdawg drive-in employee, who later opened a Chicago-area family deli of his own.  He left a career in the corporate world to carry on the family's long-standing passion of Chicago comfort food.  Delivering high-quality products and personality is the recipe for success that was passed down to Greenberg from his grandfather.

Greenberg, a master of the “Art of the Cart” and graduate of Hot Dog University, is eager to line up alongside the Chicago French Market’s wonderful vendors and restaurants. The Hot Dog Guy’s grand opening is set for early July in the Metra-Market at Ogilvie Transportation Center.

“What’s better than a Chicago style hot dog?” Greenberg asks. “Happiness is in the hot dog.”
