BIG GUYS SAUSAGE STAND HONORED BY PEERS WITH BUSINESS EXCELLENCE AWARD
Big Guys Sausage Stand, 7021 W Roosevelt Road, was recognized with the George W. Ashby Award for Business Excellence at the Berwyn Development Corporation’s (BDC) Annual Meeting on January 13, 2016. Owned by Brendan O’Connor, Big Guys Sausage Stand serves up the finest in Blue Collar Gourmet including homemade sausages, hand ground burgers, daily specials, soup and more.
Big Guys Sausage Stand’s puts a modern spin on the classic Chicago-style hot dog stand by offering a diverse menu that uses classic but high quality toppings. Charbroiled sausages are stuffed with thoughtful ingredients that range in composition from pork to buffalo chicken to crawfish and beyond. The menu also includes a mix of pork chop sandwiches, hot dogs and sides like fresh-cut fries and bacon-beer-cheese soup, as well as daily specials and elaborate seasonal catering packages.
Owner Brendan O’Connor also hosts an annual Sausage Fest and block party during the summer which features local music, a meat raffle, free kids games and a sausage eating contest.
Big Guys Sausage Stand is open Monday-Sunday from 11:00AM – 10:00PM.
