Best hot dogs ever at this neighborhood joint. Just don't ask for ketchup on your hot dog. Tamales, onion rings and fries also noteworthy.

Whenever I am in the Chicago area, the one thing I have on my agenda is to get a good grilled polish sausage....and I know just where to get it. Herm's!! The menu is go-normous, the service is friendly and fast. It was delicious!

My granddaughter's love to go to Herm's. If you are not looking for a hot dog or burger you can get a great salad. They have the best fries in town! We enjoy the friendly staff and easy atmosphere.

We came to Herm's Hot Dog Palace for lunch. Located just west of McCormick Blvd., there is plenty of parking. When you come inside, the menu is on the wall behind the ordering counter and it is not a short menu. A large variety of sandwiches, as well as entrees. Once you order, you grab a table and a few...

I've been coming to Chicago for three years and always make sure I have time to stop here at least once. The guys are always friendly and they always greet the customers as you walk in. So many regulars waking in you'd think only family ate here. Today we had a regular hot dog and a polish sausage with pastrami.....as... More

Had been coming here for years and moved away for awhile. Moved back to the area and decided to see if things were the same. Given that this is a family-owned business the menu board is all new but the atmosphere is the same! This place serves up all of the Chicago favorites-hot dogs, Italian Beef, burgers and fries. My...

When we need a quick tasty meal we stop in at "The Palace". We get the Herms special which is their version of a hamburger. Rye bread for the bun with two kinds of cheese along with the beef. Always the same fellows behind the counter so there is always a sense of familiarity when you walk in the door.... More

Been coming here for decades. Hamburgers, hot dogs, subs, chicken, and a bunch more. Good fries too. I like the food, the atmosphere and the prices.
