Fluky's is a Chicago-area fast food restaurant known for hot dogs.


Fluky's began in Chicago in 1929 on Maxwell and Halsted Streets. Founded by Abe Drexler, this stand is widely acknowledged as the originator of the Chicago-style hot dog. Still owned by the Drexler family, Fluky's maintains a restaurant in the Chicago suburb of Buffalo Grove and stands in some Wal-Mart stores.

The one-time chain had dwindled by the time the last city-of-Chicago Fluky's, 6821 N. Western Ave., changed its name to U Lucky Dawg on February 14, 2006; that site had been owned by a licensee for the previous eight years.
