Pudgy's will be closed for the winter season.

We will be reopening in the spring.

I will post updates on the new location and reopening date.

Thank you!

It's Saturday afternoon, why cook? Stop in and get a hot dog or beef for dinner! We're open until 8 PM tonight!

It's a beautiful Saturday afternoon, perfect time for an authentic Chicago Style Hot Dog & Italian Beef!

Hear that? It's the authentic Chicago style Hot Dogs & Pudgy Fries calling your name! The Italian Beef is a little confused so it's just muttering into the gravy.

Answer their call & come on over for lunch, or a snack, early dinner or just because!

Very cute place for a quick bite. Homemade chili, hand-cut fries, homemade potato salad. Potatoes are bought from a local grower. There Chicago hot dog was very well done. Worth to check it out.

I hope they reopen. Incredible fries and the only place for miles that you can get a Chicago style beef. When they ask hot or mild giardiniera and how you want it dipped, you know it's the real deal.

This place is great and I wish I lived in the area. We found this place after walking by all the other restaurants and looking for something that was simple. This family friendly place has great fries and hotdogs. The portions were large, employees wonderful and the prices were not out of line. A great find.
