Mike's Chicago Dogs was founded in 2017 by Mike Harjung. After growing up and living in Chicago, Illinois most of his life, Mike and his family headed west for warmer weather to the beautiful town of Cave Creek, Arizona. Mike and his family fell in love with Arizona, however their passion and desire for Chicago cuisine remained.
In 2017, Mike decided to bring his dream of operating his own Chicago style hot dog cart to fruition and Mike's Chicago's Dogs was born. Mike was offering perfectly cooked Vienna Beef franks to the people of Cave Creek, Carefree, North Scottsdale and North Phoenix. Chicago Dogs, Jumbo Dogs, Chili Dogs and Frito Pies were among his specialties. It wasn't long before the word got out and Mike's Chicago Dogs became the huge success that it is today. Recognized as the premier Hot Dog cart in Arizona, Mike brings his passion for Arizona, his love of Chicago and his never ending desire to serve the perfect hot dog to thousands of happy customers every day.
