The Mean Wiener // Hang Outs

Late last year Maddie and my mom and I finally tried out The Mean Wiener in Highwood, IL. My mom has been wanting to try it for years, but since our area has so many hot dog places around (and a lot of ones closer to us) we just didn't get around to it... until October, that is.

This is - by far - one of my favorite hot dog places around! $2 for a hot dog + bucket load of fries, and one of the best milk shakes I've ever had for $1.95. I've taken both my mom and Molly to lunch on two separate occasions and both times it was under $11 for both of us including drinks. What!? Not even McDonald's is that cheap! And the food is delicious!

It also has a really cute, semi-vintage inspired atmosphere, with old prints/photographs decorating the walls.

I know most of my readers are from scattered across the country, but if any of you are in the Highland Park/Highwood area I highly suggest you check this place out! ♥

  1. What a random little place! Looks like something my family would love. I love places that put those little cookeis on the starws of milkshakes like that.

  2. Yup. It's official. I'm coming to Illinois.

  3. Oh man I can't imagine they are that cheap! Wish McDonnalds would make cute cheap stuff for a student like me!
    I could go for a juicy hot dog right now! I also love the cookie on the straw, that is super adorable ^_^.
    Have fun with your outfits and good luck with life!
