Duck Inn Dogs Pop-Up at Revivial Food Hall Until End of September

Combining The Duck Inn’s familiar flavors and gourmet ingredients, the Duck Inn Dog pop-up at Revival Food Hall, 125 S. Clark, offers playful variations of our famed Duck Fat Hot Dog (Top Dog by Food Network, Best Hot Dogs in Chicago by Food & Wine), made with all-natural beef and duck fat.

“There are few things more quintessential to Chicago than a hot dog in the summer, so we are really excited to have some of the best dogs in the city at Revival,” says Bruce Finkelman, managing partner at 16” on Center. “Our team has been a big fan of Kevin and The Duck Inn for years now and we can’t wait bring a taste of the South Side to The Loop.”
