After a little discussion on Facebook we found that our Chicago Dogs are not totally authentic. I think I can live with that, though, because they were damned good!
Here’s what we have inside… First, a squiggle of French’s yellow mustard on each side of the toasted bun. Yes, kids, yellow mustard. Bright yellow. Then some dill relish smeared on one side. We didn’t have the shockingly unnatural green stuff. I guess I’ll be shopping for that now. Can you even buy it around here? Nathan’s dog is nestled in with some sliced tomatoes. Topped with sliced pepperoncini, some celery salt and grilled onions. Damn good.
This is a far cry from our regular chili covered, grated cheddar melted under the broiler dog topped with minced onion. I would say the Chicago dog was just as tasty, only in a different way.
Your go-to dog?
