Celebrating 65 Years of Mickey’s Drive-In: A Tribute to Chicago’s Culinary Heritage

Here at Mickey’s Drive-In, we’re thrilled to celebrate 65 years of serving the Bellwood community and beyond with the best of Chicago’s classic culinary offerings. Founded in 1959 by Ann Sangiacomo, our little hot dog stand has grown into a beloved staple where generations have gathered to enjoy authentic Chicago style hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, and more.

From humble beginnings with just a few hundred dollars, Ann and Mickey transformed a roadside ice cream spot into the go-to place for Chicago-style delights. Our menu slowly grew from hot dogs to include Italian beef, Italian sausage, and meatball sandwiches, each made with love and the fresh ingredients right in front of our customers.

🎉 In celebration, add a drink to any sandwich for just 65 cents!🎉

All through May!

Our commitment to quality and family tradition has never wavered. We take pride in making food as you order, ensuring it’s fresh and exactly to your liking. Seeing our customers return day after day, year after year, tells us we’ve kept true to our mission.

Celebrating this milestone, we remember the early days when a hot dog, fries, and a drink cost just 37 cents with tax. Today, while prices may have changed, our dedication to quality and customer care remains the same.

As we mark 65 years, we invite you to join us in celebrating this special anniversary. Whether you’re a longtime fan or new to Mickey’s, we’re excited to share our story and our food with you. Come by, say hello to Mickey Jr. and Frank, and enjoy a meal that’s been a part of Chicago’s history for over six decades.

Thank you for being a part of our journey. Here’s to many more years of delicious memories at Mickey’s Drive-In!

Temporary Change in Hours for Fall

Saying Goodbye to the Old Mickey’s Sign

Due to a rough storm earlier in the month, we will sadly have to take down the iconic “Mickey’s” hot dog sign that has hung over Mannheim road for over 50 years.

Here’s a video of a heartfelt Frank saying goodbye to the bright lights.

Sad to see it go 🙁
