According to a report published yesterday by DNAInfo Chicago, UnderDog is re-opening this year in the basement of the Flash Taco space 1570 N. Damen Avenue in Wicker Park.

Underdogg to Heat to Underdog Once Again

For those who may not know, UnderDogg (with 2 g's) was a late night hot dog spot that closed its doors to greasy fries and veggie dogs in 2009. The owners re-concepted and the space became Heat; a gourmet hot dog shop with an emphasis on game and other unique fare like duck and elk hot dogs and boar sausage. 

But now it seems the space is heading back to its former UnderDogg roots. The new concept is not only losing the extra "g", however. It's losing the gourmet spin and game hot dogs.This casual eatery is featuring a new menu including Mexican-style hot dogs, Vienna beef hot dogs and will eventually add an ice cream parlor and coffee. They will also be adding veggie dogs back onto the menu. 

Prices for the dogs will be $3 and that includes fries. Gyros and burgers will stay on the menu.

Sounds like the newer version of the original concept may just be a better fit for the late night crowd at North, Damen and Milwaukee Avenue in Wicker Park. UnderDog is in the middle of renovations but is looking to reopen in November of this year and will, once again, be open until 5am.
