That place sucked so bad. I wrote a review about it after they first opened. Someone on here blasted me and told me to go back and try it again... so I did. I ended up leaving the entire meal on the table and walking out.

Lazy Dogs had the same problem...using the lowest grade garbage ingredients and charging standard prices

Oh well, at least we will have a Portillos soon enough. Groundbreaking 1st week of April

I just stopped into Wynder's and the owner said they are not closing. There is a sign on the front door that says they will be *temporarily* closing earlier than normal because of an issue not related to the restaurant.

That's a shame, because they ought to close for good! That place is absolutly horrible. As for portilo's, I heard the same thing that they were coming to. It's supposed to be built up by the hospital. Can anyone confirm that?
thank god

Wynders business partner is pulling out. its a black hole for them. terry the guy running it thinks another investor will take over..just like he thought disney wanted his product...right. Besides what hot dog restaurant is closed after 4 on the weekends and closes at 6 during the week. bad business and i understand why the business partner is pulling out

Well here it is on the patch: Wynder's Spiral Cut Hot Dogs in New Lenox closed last week, but owner Terry Johnson is hopeful for future opportunities to market his trademark franks.

I hate it when any place (Wynder's does this), has that Vienna sign of a "real" Chicago Style Hot Dog (Poppyseed bun, steamed bun & steam cooked Viena dog, Mustard, Onion, Relish), you've see this poster (AJ's has the same pic). You order the Chicago Dog and it's nothing like the picture at all. Wynders deep fry's & grills the dog? WTF is that? I say FALSE ADVERTYISING!

But their Fresh Cut Fries are old school & I love them. Irish Pig makes Fresh Cut Fries too.
