Polish Sausage Sandwich // A Proprietary Blend of Just The Right Spices. A Juicy, Crunchy, and Sweet Smoked Polish Sausage Served the Same Way Since the 1940's, on a Hot Bun with a Layer of Yellow Salad Mustard, Topped with a Mountain of Sweet Colossal Spanish Onions Grilled to Perfection and with an Abundance of Spicy Hot Sport Peppers. A Bag of French Fries Is Included FREE.
This is the often imitated, never duplicated Maxwell Street Polish Sausage. I can literally eat this sandwich morning, noon, and night (because they are open 24/7 including holidays) but also because it's just one of my favorite sandwiches.
The simplicity of the sandwich (bun, sausage, mustard, onions) in relation to the quality and deliciousness beats just about any sandwich I know. It's also one of the cheapest, most filling sandwiches you can get anywhere. The blend of spices in the sausage pairs so well with the sweet, caramelized onions and mustard. I also enjoy the hot peppers that accompany the sandwich to give that acidic kick that I'm always looking for.
I've tried polish sausages at various establishments around the city, baseball games, etc., but nothing compares to the sausages and fries you get at Jim's. You also get the nostalgia of a true hot dog stand. Literally no where to sit. You just walk up and eat at an outdoor countertop or in your car, or take it home. Jim's Original is a true Chicago classic.
