to our hotdog stand!
Sometimes the place you ate at as a kid is still the best
treat in town. Madvek's Doghouse has been a Calumet Region dining favorite for 50 years.
Madvek's is a tradition to locals who remember eating at Madvek's as children, only to return years
later with families of their own. We enjoy hearing our customer's stories about eating at Madvek's
years ago. They understand it's more than just the food, it's the Madvek's experience.
years ago we added the "Chicago Style" hot dog to our menu. Stop in and try this delicious Vienna all
beef hot dog served with mustard, relish, onion, tomato, pickle spear, sport pepper and celery salt. We also offer our
famous polish sausage served "Chicago Style".
December 2012, our cozy diner was featured on Chicago's entertainment and foodie program, 190
North. Madvek's was highlighted on 190 North for our interesting take on our highly-popular
loose meat burger.
We are located at
the corner of Calumet Avenue and 169th Place in Hammond, Indiana. In October 2010
Madvek's received an honorary street renaming of 169th Place as "Madvek's Place".
This recognition was in honor of George & Vi Madvek, the original owners of Madvek's.
On Wednesday, October 27, 2010, Madvek's Doghouse was inducted into the
Vienna Beef Hot Dog Hall of Fame.
Madvek's consistent quality and fresh ingredients are
the secret to our diner's never ending appeal. Generation of diners have savored Madvek's menu
items including Vienna all beef hot dogs and polish sausage, loose meat burgers, tacos and homemade
chili. Madvek's Doghouse is open for business Monday thru Friday 10:30 am to 6:00 pm and Saturdays 11:00 am to 6:00
pm. Dine in or call ahead for take-out orders at 219-932-1060.
