Ed Sheeran Dodges Insults As He Serves Up Hot Dogs At Iconic Chicago Restaurant

The Wieners Circle, an establishment known for its food and harsh language, said Sheeran was "too proper and friendly" at the famed hot dog stand.

Ed Sheeran dropped by an iconic Chicago restaurant known for its foul-mouthed staff and served up hot dogs amid a sea of insults on Saturday.

In a video shared to his Instagram, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter stepped behind the counter of The Wieners Circle, where he served fans before his concert at Soldier Field.

The video shows one worker hurling a string of expletives at the restaurant’s patrons while Sheeran laughs his way through the experience.

“This place is legendary [in] Chicago for serving hot dogs and insulting their customers. I loved it,” Sheeran wrote in the caption.

In its own social media post, the restaurant referred to Sheeran as its “favorite bloke” and insulted the hitmaker over his job performance.

“Our newest trainee [Ed Sheeran] has a lot to learn, he’s way too proper and friendly,” the restaurant wrote.

The famed hot dog stand also posted a message on its sign in seeming reference to the “Eyes Closed” singer’s red hair.

“Do you want Edchup with that,” the sign read.

Sheeran, who said he prefers English hot dogs to those in America, served fans in the Windy City prior to an apparently record-breaking show on his +–=÷× (Mathematics) Tour.

His stop at Soldier Field marked the “largest concert that’s ever been” held at the stadium, with 73,000 people in attendance, the venue said in a tweet quoting the singer.

Sheeran also played for what he called a “pin drop silence crowd” at a supplemental “Subtract” show at the Chicago Theatre on Friday.
