Hey Coy One, If you are a Gene and Judes fan, try Delicous Redds in Lake Zurich. You wont be sorry, and it will save you the drive.

Tried Redds -- Meh. No thanks. Even though Sonic is a chain, they have great Chi-style hot dogs. Best in LZ by far.

What's wrong with you people??? Sonic,really!? You must be cheap! If you want the best go to Bellalukes in Lake Zurich; their hotdogs rule! Please note, you get what you pay for.

I walked out of Red's due to not carrying cash on me. No credit cards excepted! Bellalukes is great!
