The legend of “Jim’s Original” started over 70 years ago, when a young, bright-eyed European immigrant named “Jimmy” arrived in America. Once in Chicago, Jimmy began working at a small hot dog stand on the bustling corners of Maxwell and Halsted Street. Jimmy worked hard, bought the stand from his aunt, and then made it literally “World Famous.” He piled succulent polish sausages high on the grill and created the first Maxwell St. Polish Sausage sandwich, with sweet grilled onions and a smear of mustard.
