They never claim to serve healthy food, but they do serve good food. The staff is so friendly and the hot dogs, corn dogs, cheese fries and loose meat hamburgers are excellent! The cheese fries are, by far, the best in the area and it's nice quick diner service. You order at the counter, have a seat in a booth... More

I can't lie, I was raised eating Madvek's hot dogs and I still, over 40 years later, stop by whenever I am remotely in the area. I love the polish sausage and my husband loves just about anything they have. It's a small place but it's SO GOOD STILL!!!

If you have not visited, you must try it if your palate is craving a Polish or Hamburger. Pretty good and will try again. A bit pricey but keep in mind it's not McDonald's.

Found this place thanks to Trip Advisor during my return trip to home. Met my daughter and her husband for their trip to Chicago. We met Mary the owner and she did a great job of making us feel at home and that our business was appreciated. We can tell you that the chili, coneys and hot dogs were very... More

Stopped for a quick lunch, first time there. We had a Chicago Dog and a Cheeseburger. The burgers are not really a burger, they are loose ground beef, kind of like a sloppy joe, but without the red sauce or gravy. Both sandwiches came with fries. It is a small diner type place, but family run and the people were... More

Great hamburger, hot dogs, loose meat sandwiches, and they have a taco dog! This place is small but packs a big punch.

Love this diner, fast, friendly and great food. Their hamburgers are better than the old Maid Rite but are similar since they are steamed and scramble. Wonderful and generous amount of fries are included with the hot dogs and many other sandwiches which are also great.

From the outside this place looks like any other south side hot dog place. Go inside for a family run diner that is spotlessly clean and with waitress or counter service that makes sure you are appreciated. I love going here for their genuinely friendly service and a reasonable meal. A real gem.

I love their polish sausage. I'm thinking about getting one now. They have loose burgers, hot dogs, chili dogs, pizza puffs, corn dogs. I love this place.
