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.

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

Poor Little Piggy @ Frontier

Delicious DIRT was among the lucky few to sample oysters galore + mac + cheese (5 cheese) at Frontier Chicago‘s opening night last winter. The boys, our friends, behind Lotties Pub and The Pony really brought it when they opened this newbie!

Frontier is a chill restaurant / sports bar (24 flat screens) with a SWEET menu + extensive drink list. The crowd is usually pretty low key and unpretentious. Atmosphere is casual, wooden, rustic and calming. Don’t forget to head upstairs as well…

Frontier's Mac by MBK

Frontier is an eatery that will most likely end up in your regular rotation – it’s def in ours – kitchen OPEN TIL 1AM FOLKS. On MBK’s palate most nights she’s there –> red wine, oysters and 5 cheese Mac & Cheese… all of which SHINE brightly!

Frontier's Oysters by MBK
