Poochie's is one hot dog stand that loves to pat itself on the back. Lots of press clippings, but does Poochie's live up to the hype? Well, the hot dogs were fine for a pseudo-Chicago style (pickles, tomatoes, & celery salt). The home-cut fries were decent. However, I think the cheddar-burger with everything is the stand-out item that is worth driving a long distance for. Prices were slightly pricey. Above average quality but overrated considering all of the press they get. Better hot dogs exist.
Pros: cheddar burger, home-cut fries, decent dogs
Cons: Overhyped, Overrated, pseudo-Chicago style
