Hot Doug’s owner, Dough Sohn, announced he will be closing the gourmet hot dog stand this fall. Customers standing in line reflect on the announcement and what the restaurant meant to them. The small Avondale restaurant took the Chicago hot dog stand to the pages of the New York Times Food Section. Customers lined up around the corner and would wait hours for the tasty cased meats. Louisa Chu, co-host of the podcast Chewing the Fat, joins us from outside Hot Doug’s in Avondale.
