About Jay’s Chicago


1105 042

Maybe you’re from Chicago and miss a real Vienna Beef Hotdog. Perhaps you visited Chicago and crave the best hotdogs on the planet. Or, you heard about Chicago hotdogs and would like to try one for the first time.That’s why I created Jay’s Chicago. I grew up on the South Side, 2 blocks west of Midway, in the Clearing neighborhood, in the St, Symphorosa parish. Later, we moved to Tinley Park and attended Carl Sandburg HS and graduated from Andrew HS. Eventually graduated from SIU in Carbondale after two years at Moraine Valley CC. My Mom was from Cicero, and Dad from the Near West Side. I then moved to the south 26 years ago and still craved the Chicago food I grew up on.

So, half of my life I have tried to get the real, authentic Chicago food that I grew up on.

Unable to find it, I decided to start my own.

Check out where my Jay’s Chicago cart will be located on my calender, Facebook and Twitter. If you would like to book Jay’s Chicago for private or community events, give me a call [615-878-0264]. Thanks, I look forward to serving you a Taste of the Windy City soon.
