There's no better hot dog than a "Chicago style" hot dog... no ketchup. Ever. Ketchup is for fries.  ^_^

When you say Chicago Style are you saying piled with a bunch of junk so you can not taste the dog?

Could be, it's one of the few Chicago things I've never picked up on in the 35 of my 37 years I've lived here.

I remember back in the 50's & 60's when there were hot dog carts in Chicago, and boy were the dogs ever good!

I don't know why but only two times I will touch a hot dog those are at a baseball game or a hockey game and it has to be smothered in onions and mustard

Born in Chicago, lived there and surrounding areas for my first 27 years. I always then and now put ketchup on my dogs. And yes, I have gotten a lot of BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH about doing that !  I like what I like.

Ketchup on a hot dog is like pineapple on a pizza. Not to be done.

My wife grew up by Jimmy's Hot Dog Stand and insists on no ketchup, EVER. We don't even have it in the house.

 

Andy - As long as it's a Vienna dog you'll taste it!

 

We have a place here on the west side called Glaziers. They sell the Vienna dogs, peppers, buns you name it. MrsG raids the place once a week now.

 

Oh and tamales too!

Eh, so long as it's hanging from the spool, or at least within reach of the seat, I'm happy!

I totally agree that mustard belongs on a Hot Dog, and Ketchup belongs on a Burger and fries.  I have to admit, to my mind though, pickles, peppers and tomatoes just don't seem to go on a Hot Dog.  Relish, spicy mustard, onions, saurkraut OK......        Guess that maybe if I actually ever tried a Chicago Dog I might feel differently about it.  

 

I also agree that pineapple (or any fruit) does NOT belong on a pizza.  Cheese, pepperoni, sausage, meatball, tomatoes OK......  I've also never had a Chicago style deep dish pizza... they sound good, but I've never had one.  Having been a New Yorker most of my life I like a thin crust pizza with extra cheese and meat toppings, and Hot Dogs with spicy mustard and onions in the red sauce.

 

......and my toilet paper comes over the top.  :lol:

 

Why am I suddenly hungry???

Wayne, I remember Jimmy's Hot Dog stand very well on the corners of Grand and Pulaski Aves. A good friend of mine lived just down the street from Jimmy's, so I was there often.  Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge was close by that area as well. Those days were great times.
