Readers' Choice: Who's Got Palatine's Best Hot Dogs?

Chicagoland is world-famous for its hot dogs. So where do you go in Palatine when you just gotta have one?

With temperatures soaring into the ’90s over the weekend, summer can’t be far behind.

And what says summer better than a plump, juicy hot dog on a bun, jam-packed with all the trimmings: ­from mustard to kraut, relish, onions, tomatoes and … well, you get the picture.

This week, we're asking readers to give us their pick for the best place in Palatine to get a great hot dog.

It’s simple to nominate your favorite place for a hot dog: All you need to do is sign into our site and then comment below with your vote. Feel free to elaborate on why this spot is so fantastic. You can also review the business in Patch's Directory.

If you own or represent one of these businesses, find and claim your listing. It's completely free, and it will help you get the word to the community about what you do!

We will take nominations for best place to get a hot dog through the end of the day Sunday, June 3 and we'll have a poll with the top nominees Monday, June 4. Voting will take place until Friday at noon.

The winner will be revealed the morning of Saturday, June 9.

Best place for hotdogs is Gene and Judes in Franklin Park. All the places in Palatine are either over priced or serve a stale bun and dog.

Billy's Hot Dogs! Illinois and Plum Grove Road. Not only great hot dogs, but everything else there is awesome. The best soup around and fresh salads and daily specials that beat most restaurants :) And of course, great owners and workers.

Billy's is really good. I haven't had a bad experience there yet and I've been going a long time. The guys who work there are really nice, too, so that makes a difference!

Fratillo's in Rolling Meadows is the best near Palatine. If you're staying IN Palatine, it's gotta be Chiggy's.
