Photo by MBK

Returning to our roots at Wieners Circle felt so damn good!! For those of you who are unfamiliar, this is the joint to hit up for supreme late night dining…open til 5am folks. We’d literally tackle those Wieners on the daily if we could. #OldSchool

CHEDDAR FRIES = PURE DELICIOUS DIRT by MBK

The Circle is a hot dog / hamburger stand in the heart of Lincoln Park that actually lives up to the hype. You’ll get yelled at by the lady we love behind the counter and, if you’re lucky, (#eyeofthebeholder), you’ll get flashed while sitting at the wood community table benches we love.  You’ll laugh out loud while witnessing verbal abuse beyond belief, but you’ll soon be quickly calmed by the mouth watering char-dogs + char-burgers you’ll devour.

Counter Action by MBK

It’s all an experience you’ll savor because the food is pure Delicious DIRTyou won’t regret taking down. EVER. In fact, you’ll devour those calories and most definitely go back for more.

Fave We Crave = Char Cheddar Burger + Cheddar Fries by MBK

The char cheddar burger at Wieners Circle is our fave simply because it’s insanely delicious. The burger itself is always perfectly well done, hot, juicy, and loaded with that fake cheddar sauce we want to down by the gallon. #theworks

Char Cheddar Burger by MBK

The cheddar fries are to die for. The potatoes are not too small and not too large – just right in size and oh so smothered in fake cheddar + doused in ketchup. HEAVEN.  You don’t even have to ask for extra cheddar if you’re a cheese addict like MBK, you actually get enough. Hot damn, we’re making ourselves hungry writing this. #HotTip: if you’re not into using your hands, bring a fork.

More Cheddar Fries by MBK

Sadly we forgot to swallow Wieners’ famous chocolate shake…
Coulda Woulda Shoulda.  #NextTime.

Delicious DIRT. Art Smith Exclusive

“The Gov. of Florida, taught me that in order to get ahead you had to understand politics and diplomacy. Oprah taught me to honor your word and always give people your best. Life taught me to always have a parachute,” Art Smith. CLICK PHOTOS TO ENLARGE

Deviled Eggs @ Table Fifty-two

Yes, Oprah gave her whole studio audience cars… However, the most meaningful gift she gave Chicago and food nerds across America was opening our eyes to the one and only wonderful Chef Art Smith. The TV star and head chef behind President Obama favorite Table Fifty-two and Art & Soul, (plus future restaurants in California and Atlanta) has a heart made of gold.  What you may NOT know is this fantastic chef has become a recent marathoner and runs a remarkable charity, Common Threads.

None of the above should be surprising to anyone who has met Chef Art Smith.  His Southern roots and upbringing shine not just in his cooking, but also in his overall demeanor.  The way Art treats everyone he meets is with pure kindness. We are sincerely proud to call him our friend.  Art cooks the food we love, the food we crave, and the food we devour!! Even better, he serves it with panache.  We, at Delicious DIRT, adore Chef Art Smith – as a mentor, a chef and a friend. Below, get to know Art Smith, up close and personal. We hope you’ll enjoy reading his interview as much as we loved giving it.
