“In conjunction with the Hawthorne Street Fair, Zach hosts his annual hot dog eating contest. 12 harrowing minutes of gut stuffing and you could be the next champ. Last year the winner ate 11 wieners, which doesn’t seem like much to me. Also, Zach’s now serves beer and wine, which helps those dogs slide down quick.”

“Zach’s Shack is a little pile of heaven shoved into a bun. While that may not sound very appetizing, I assure you this quaint Hawthorne bungalow will rock your sausage jones. I ate two dogs—the Chicago Dog and Zach’s Favorite–and found both of them outrageously delicious. Prices range from $2.50 to $3.25, offering an alternative to your daily burrito. Veggie dogs may be substituted at no extra charge in case something about the well-advertised “snap” of the 100% beef dogs rubs you the wrong way. Shack-side seating offers views of the street, the shack, and a mysterious, derelict house with electrical cords stuffed through the front door. Besides the splendor of its sausage, Zach’s is open until 3 am Tuesday-Sunday, so you can eat one when you’re totally wasted. Zach’s Shack would only be better if it had wings and could fly its sausage-crazy ass to your doorstep.”
