There's a pretty large swath of space available along that block now, as The Flower Shop (which was right next door) closed earlier in the spring.
This restaurant seemed to get pretty good reviews & ratings. One thing that did surprise me is that they weren't open at night, but maybe they did well enough as just a lunchtime destination.
I'm probably too critical about this, because I grew up on Chicago hot dog stands.....but, I didn't think this place every really got it right. Don't get me wrong, the food wasn't terrible or anything like that, but it was never anything like an authentic Chicago hot dog/italian beef/gyro place.
I wonder if they're moving elsewhere, the place has a history of moving around.....they originally started out on 24th or 25th St by Drake, in an old fire station building (I think that's what it was). Then they were in a strip mall by Toys R Us in WDM, then on Ingersoll, near the old Tech High School, and finally to their Euclid location.
