Thanks for all your years of Great Service and quality Also want to acknowledge Jerry he has always been a friendly and professional man Great asset to Jimmys
A Chicago staple, grew up on these red hots and polishes so I’m a bit bias. Other hot dog joints might compete but none can compare to Jimmy’s!
The polishes were really good and the fries would be good if they were hotter I might give it another try
Three stars, A-OK, means I like this place and try to stop by when I’m in the area. I like the dogs with mustard and onions, and maybe one sport pepper, and I dig the fries. I have to wonder about some of the reviews. People love this place or hate it. The dogs are great, the dogs are too small. The fries are old, the fries are hot and fresh. If you’re a suburbanite searching for the perfect “garden on a bun Chicago Style hot dog” and an immaculate eat-in area Jimmy’s isn’t for you. Hey, I’d like that too but realize that isn’t the case. I’d like to see larger hot dogs myself, not just at Jimmy’s but across the city. One last thing…f**k you all with that goofy ketchup rule. If you’re going to give me the dog for free then put whatever you want on it. If I have to pay, and that’s always the case, put what I want on it. Now, I don’t use ketchup on anything, but I think this is one dumb-ass rule. At least offer packets. And help us stop being accosted by beggars.
Just try it, it’s just a great spot to grab a quick lunch. Stop in! The price can’t be beat either. Cash only
When in the area of Grand Avenue & Pulaski Road, Jimmy’s is the place to be. Neighborhood is a little rough around the edges, but it was that same when I was a kid. Remember they only take cash and no Ketchup!!! ATM available if you have no coin. Ordered Hot Dog with Everything On comes with Fries ordered a tamale as well. Just as good as I remembered last time stopping by. Always a favorite and price point is good! Cheers!
Love this place! The fries are the best. The price is right and the Chicago dog is my favorite. Totally a Chicago staple!
Dogs are good here. Not gene and Jude’s, but still solid. The hot pepper on the dog is pretty hot so be careful. Definitely worth a stop in.
If you’re wasted and happen to be right near by than yeah it’ll be sick. If you’re sober and can cook a box of kraft macroni and cheese…. well than you might better appreciate that. I however happen to usually be totally tanked on a Friday night.
You really can’t go wrong with Jimmys Red Hots. Located on the corner of Grand and Pulaski, this hot dog joint has a simple menu. Hot dogs and Polish sausage. It’s cash only, and you’re in and out in less than a minute. You should already know what you’re going to want before you step foot in there, because these guys are nice and all, but they don’t have patience for ignorance! This isn’t your typical Chicago style hot dog. Jimmy’s rivals Gene & Judes with the hot dog covered in mustard, relish, onions and sport peppers. No tomatoes or pickles here. They also serve the hot dog wrapped next to fries. The fries are also freshly cut in house. In my opinion, Gene & Judes serves a better hot dog. Only reason, because Gene & Judes puts the greasy fries on top of the head dog instead of next to the hot dog. When you do this, the grease from the fries drips down to the hot dog giving every bite some extra flavor. One thing Jimmy’s has that Gene & Judes doesn’t is a Polish. The Polish here is excellent and comes with the same onions, mustard, sport pepper and relish. The Polish sausage has a nice snap to it and perfectly cooked. Jimmy’s still serves an excellent hot dog and I will be coming here every time I’m in the mood for a quick and cheap bite.
