There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but the deal at one Chicago hot dog stand comes awfully close. Customers waited in long lines outside Jim's Original on South Union for a chance to buy a sandwich and fries for 70 cents.

The restaurant is offering the deal until 8:00 p.m. tonight to celebrate its 70th anniversary.

The cooks are busy trying to keep up with the orders and customers seem quite happy to find such a bargain.
