I’ve never been to Chicago but a few years ago, I had a Chicago-style hot dog. It may have not been completely authentic but it was unlike anything I’d ever had before—hellacious an wunnerful.
Of course, I grew up loving the Sabrett dirty water dogs that you get on the streets of New York–mustard, occasionally onions, and that nasty green relish when it was available.
When I was growing up, the old man would take my brother, sister and me out to Nathan’s in Brooklyn every so often to get what he claimed to be the best dog in New York.
I don’t eat hot dogs too tough anymore–an unfortunate incident at Shea Stadium a few years ago saw to that–but every so often, I’ll get a craving. So, here’s my question to you: what’s the best hot dog you’ve ever had? And where.
