Sam's Red Hots Calls It Quits After More Than 70 Years In Bucktown

Located at 2345 W. Armitage Ave., just east of Western Avenue, the stand is believed to have opened in the 1940s, according to Fischer.

    Sam's Red Hots Calls It Quits After More Than 70 Years In Bucktown
    BUCKTOWN - Sam's Red Hots, a popular family-owned hot dog stand that spanned four generations and two owners in Bucktown, has closed. Ruth Fischer, 86, of Highland Park, said her son who ran the stand for years is ill. "We told [the workers] on Monday not to order anything anymore.

    this is very sad news for me.

    Sam's was, literally, one of the last old-time hot dog stands in Chicago.

    yeah, there are new places to get a hot dog ... but they are not the same. not the same ambiance. not the same yummy steamed dogs and tamales. i have never been into "gourmet" goose pate and truffle sausages on a bun or dogs from places that sell everything from italian beefs to gyros and salads. they are not for me. they have no character, no history, no pedigree.

    they are not hot dog stands. they are just fast food joints that list hot dogs along with 30 other things on their menus.

    i like old fashioned steamed hot dogs, with fries, from places that specialize in steamed hot dogs, with fries, wrapped in paper and stuffed in a brown paper bag.

    hot dogs stands where you can smell that steamy goodness a block away. and have to stand shoulder-to-shoulder at the window with other customers.

    and YES!, Sam's would put ketchup on the dogs if asked to! no back talk. no attitude.

    in the early 60's my parents owned two restaurants within a block of Sam's. one is gone, the other, which they actually built out of an old butcher shop, is now Arturo's. and we lived a block away, so i knew this hot dog joint quite well and went there all the time. simple fare. cheap. quick.

    Chicago used to be full of these traditional hot dog stands. they were everywhere. everywhere. there must have been a million of them. in fact, back in the 60's there were 2 more within a block of Sam's.

    it's sad to hear the owner had to close it down after becoming ill. best wishes to him and his family, and to the ladies that worked the service window.

    ... and thanks to all the different owners over the years for all those hot dogs.

    g'bye, Sam's. i already miss you.
