This is the famous Milwaukee avenue hot dog joynt down on the outskirts of the city that's now opened another place here down the road in Wheeling, the Tijuana stretch on Milwaukee avenue between Mount Prospect and Buffalo Grove..( my local readers know what that means.... as does ICE, FBI, ATF, GOV and every other WTF government agency. I think you get the picture)
Anyhow locals know this place used to attract the cool cars back in the days of drive in's which even continued through my high school days in the early eighties and continues to some extent in certain segmento's of the community if you comprende amigo...
Maurie and Flaurie the dancing hotdogs from the movie previews ....yes that's them....
