With 50 years of experience in the business, Ed Kis learned from his Dad (Ed Sr.) how to build an iconic hot dog stand. Today, the leadership team of Owner Jeanne Hoyle and General Manager Ed Kis has led Top Dog Restaurant to earn several awards including the Lt. Governors Indiana Hospitality Award and the LaPorte County People's Choice Award. "I'm proud to carry on the tradition of quality work ethic that my Dad taught me." says Ed."Top Dog offers a home away from home for our customers and we try to extend that feeling to every customer passing through our doors."
Top Dog Restaurant is famous as the "Best Chicago Dog East of Chicago". "We feature Vienna Beef hot dogs, and we have added our own special touch to create the unique Maxwell Street Polish and Italian Beef Sandwich specialties that our customers have come to expect and crave." says Ed.
