It’s a great day to be a hot dog in suburban Chicago.
According to a press release, hot dog shop Luke’s of Lake Bluff receives the high honor of being inducted into the “National Vienna Beef Hot Dog Hall of Fame” on Wednesday.
The store, located in Chicago’s northern suburb of Lake Bluff, is recognized for its “longstanding commitment to customers and the community of Lake Bluff” and will receive a banner and plaque to commemorate such a celebration.
The induction ceremony is at 10:30 a.m. at Luke’s, located at 203 N. Waukegan Rd., with $1 hot dogs and other goodies.
According to the restaurant’s website, the restaurant opened in 1963 and serves homemade Italian beef, Italian sausages, burgers, tacos, pizza, pasta, and of course hot dogs. A five-star review on Luke’s Yelp page reads, “What a special local business! In Chicago, there seems to be a greasy spoon on every corner (hell, Scooters is two blocks from Luke), but finding the right ones is harder.”
The Vienna Beef Hot Dog Hall of Fame was established in 2006, according to the release. Luke’s will be the 142nd lucky seller nationwide to join the other famous spots.
