ROSCOE VILLAGE — What does success taste like?

A hot dog, if you're Blackhawks left winger Bryan Bickell.

Meatheads is introducing the "Bickell Dog" as a special item on its spring menu, and the man himself will be on hand Saturday at the restaurant chain's Roscoe Village location to sample his namesake frank while meeting and greeting fans.

Bickell will be available for autographs and photos from 3:30-5 p.m. at 3304 N. Western Ave. Fans will be allowed to line up outside the restaurant beginning at 2 p.m.

Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children 10 and under, the price of which includes a voucher for a Bickell Dog (a $5 value).

The foot-long Vienna Beef hot dog is topped with chili and Fritos and served on a cheddar cheese bun. No need to feel guilty about the Bickell's nutritional implications — Meatheads is donating 10 percent of the dog's sales to the Bryan and Amanda Bickell Foundation.

The Bickells established their charity in 2012. The foundation's mission is to create awareness for pit bulls. Some of "Bick's Pits" — dogs available for adoption — will be at the event.

The Bickell Dog will be on Meatheads' menu through May 3.
