McDowell’s is Brought to Life By Popular Chicago Hot Dog Spot

http://www.vladtv.com – McDonald’s may be a fast-food favorite for most, but since they don’t carry seedless buns, it’s pretty hard to compare them to the beloved McDowell’s.

Though the Coming To America restaurant is purely fictional, a popular hot dog eatery in Chicago, Illinois decided to bring it to life for this year’s Halloween festivities – it’s not Queens, New York, but hey, close enough. We spoke to The Wiener’s Circle manager, Yolanda Smiley about the revamp, who says the idea was originated by the new store owners in less than a day. Naturally, the Big Mick was their best seller this past Saturday (Oct. 31) as onlookers and fans of the movie sat underneath the Golden Arcs while being served by workers in classic plaid McDowell’s attire.

This is the first time in 33 years The Wiener’s Circle has decided to try and rival the McDonald’s across the street from them for some good, ‘ol fashioned Halloween fun. Watch on as Miss Smiley chops it up with us about the Wiener’s Circle, their plans for next Halloween and what “very special” treat Chicagoan’s can expect at the hot dog joint on Valentine’s Day.
