G&J is an absolute to die for hot dog. I’ve taken out of town friends for years telling them it’s amazing. My last two trips were major let downs and I fear they changed their buns. One time the bac...k end of the buns were super soggy causing the hot dogs to fall apart. Aside from the dogs being very light on toppings, I figured the buns were steamed too long and chalked it up to a rare bad experience.

This time the buns on my hot dog seemed rough - almost as if the bun was toasted. My friends bun was soggy and her hot dog was falling apart. I’m not sure what the deal is but I hope it gets figured out.

This place is the real Chicago!! I fell in love with this place at first sight!!! For starters the food is excellent!! Small menu which makes it easy to decide!! In my opinion is dedicated the the blu...e collar working man and woman!! A real bang for your buck!! I can't say enough good things about this place!! The staff is excellent and your food is quick. I recommend this place to anyone looking for the real, authentic taste of Chicago!!! Thank you so much for the experience!! I will be back for more tasty food!! See More

My parents took me there when I was a kid and their parents took them their when they were kids. I mean it’s so good every time I am near O”hare airport I just have to stop by Gene & Jude’s. They have... the best Chicago style hotdogs and also fries to match! I love the way the smell lingers in my car for a day or 2! It gets everyone jealous that I went there without them. See More

I had them for the first time late night at work. Hot dog had a nice snap and fries were delicious. I have to go when I can eat them right away fresh and hot! They were good warmed up in the microwave... I can only imagine them fresh. Extra crispy for my fries! See More

Good old hot dog and fries. Depending on time one can stand a bit in a fast moving line. Know your order before you are up to the counter. Enjoy a great dog and fries no frills. Want ketchup move to Canada.

True Chicago style hotdog.
I love it when my Vienna hotdog snaps when I bite into it. Please don’t ask for Ketchup but do leave some fries inside the bun.
I’ve been going there since I was a little ...kid and now passed down the tradition. See More

G&J is the best hot dog and fries anyonecould ever eat, ever. I recently moved from Chicago to Nevada. I miss G&J more than anything else in Illinois. It will be the first thing I do when I go back. E...veryone knew my order and it was perfect every time. Do yourself a favor, no matter where you are, go. Go and get hot dogs and cherry coke. Your life will just be better! See More

I love this place! I’ve been coming here for over 30 years. You cannot beat this place or price for a hot dog and fresh fries! If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!

Last night was my second time there. Both times wee awesome. Everything is prepared in front of you. And is fresh and hot. I highly recommend Gene & Jude’s as a must to visit and see for yourself.

Best hotdogs I have ever had. French fries were out of this world! Would have given them a 5 but if I WANT ketchup for my fries, I want the dang ketchup, not a sermon on how there has been no ketchup... in your restaurant for over 70 years. See More

Thought the hot dog was small and not snappy. Bun was soggy from greasy fries on top. Sorry but I do not get the hype. So many better dogs in this city.

A classic Chicago dog “institution “.
The only thing better than eating here is eating someone who has never had a Chicago dog. The looks on their faces is priceless when they take their first bite.

Still the best hotdogs around. You can't say you've eaten Chicago style until you come here.
