Taster’s Cherce

Mustard, ketchup, relish, onions, kraut, chili…how do you like your dog? I’ve tried the Chicago-style dogs and think they’re great.

Usually, though, I’ll just go with mustard, though I can also do relish or, if I’m feeling particularly brave, onions. Ketchup, never. But The Wife always puts ketchup (and mustard) on hers, so go figure.

Sometimes I'm a ketchup guy, and I love some of the Chicago varieties - anything with bacon is always a winner.

But my favorite way to enjoy a hot dog is plain, nothing but the bun, which should always be slightly buttered and slightly toasted. If it is truly a good hot dog, it doesn't need anything else.

Bacon? That's crazy talk--or is it?

Crazy talk?

Hells no.

Dog wrapped in bacon, piled high with onions and peppers sauteed in the renderings; nothing else, unless it's some hot sauce.

Nothing finer than a couple of LA dogs after getting out late from a bar or show ...

If I'm at the Stadium, it's always mustard & onions. But anywhere in the midwest it's Chicago-style.

And if you're ever in Baltimore, Camden Yards actually has an amazing polish with sauteed onions and peppers.

5) I've never been but was planning to go this season. Duly noted, thanks.

Mustard and sauerkraut. The best.

But a good Chicago-style dog, hard to find in these parts, is fantastic. I've actually mail ordered the entire kit from the Vienna website to make them at home. Delicious!

[7] Sure thing. I also recommend the outfield bleachers if you're looking for a great spot at a good price. Even when the Bombers are in town it's only around $30 a seat and it's a great view -- not to mention prime long ball territory.
