Wiener and Still Champion-Evanston

This is a regular stop for me since it is close to my house.

I walked in while they were being filmed for an upcoming episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. and they were making their Country Fried Bacon. Has anyone tried it? It did look good on the monitor. I have tried many of the items their, even the fried pickles but not the bacon.

Returning to Chicago this month--all my favorites are out of business

The new place that Harvey opened up was called Poochies II that later changed to the Wiener and Still Champion.

Both are good but I prefer the latter with their selections of dipping sauces.

Chili cheese fries (with REAL cheese)

I would highly recommend the Cheddar Chili fries at Wiener and Still Champion in Evanston. They make their own chili and use the Merkt's Cheddar.

Don't ask for chili cheese fries or you will get the cheese sauce. Has to be Cheddar chili fries.

Bacon Cheddar fries are good as well.

There fries are pretty good by them selves as well.

Evanston eats

Celtic Knot is a good bar choice on Church Street.

Cross Rhodes on Chicago Ave is a good greek option with decent burgers.

Wiener and Still Champion on Dempster serves a great burger with outstanding fries.

Eight Hours at Northwestern U.

yes...im not that impressed with Buffalo Joes. WIngs were small and mealy. Thought it was an off night for them. So you don't recommend the Chedder burger?

Absolute best burger in Chicago?

Yes, the Argentine fries are excellent. It is in the same vein as Cross Rhodes Greek Fries. It is garlic and herbs, tangy, salty and quite addicting. They also have a creamy argentine sauce as well so you can get a cup of that to sample, That is what i get to dip the fries in.

As for the fries, i like the cheddar fries...the reg cheese sauce is good but nothing like the real merkts cheddar.

Top 3 Hot Dogs

see, i would thing the opoposite would be true. 90% of all stands use the same brand of hotdogs so how didfferent could they be really? Fries are different since most places go frozen instead of the fresh cut.
