If you've eaten in Chicago, you've heard of Vienna Beef dogs. And if you love bargains, you've heard of Mile High Vienna Stand: It's the place that has a hot dog happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. every day, when two bucks gets you a true-blue Vienna Beef dog and fries. As it turns out, though, Mile High has more than just Chicago-style dogs at good prices (and served with really good fries) going for it. Italian beef, for example, another favorite Chicago dish. Mile High isn't really a stand -- even if this homey storefront on Santa Fe is almost as small as one; your grandma would say it's like eating on top of a postage stamp. Come at lunchtime and you'll see people lined up shoulder to shoulder around the edge of the room, waiting for their order and chatting with neighbors. Go, Cubs!
