I never knew this style of hot dogs were so good. Plain ole yeller mustard, cut nearly in half and fried beef wieners, sweet pickle relish, cucumbers, dill spears, tomatoes, sport peppers, and celery salt. Wow is all I can say and we will be doing these again. Home made potato salad was good too. Wonder how many folks in north Ga have tried these?

I was in the service in 1972 on the subs of Chicago. The Old Vienna Chicago dog was a stapple of our diet back then. Egg McMuffin too, We still fix those "Dogs".

Love those sport peppers...All you need are some poppey seed buns.....And if your ever in Chicago give Portillo's a try. I stayed there for about 7 months last year and Portillo's dogs were always a treat!

Probably about the same number of people that have actually put coleslaw on a dog up here on the New Hampshire Seacoast!

Not much you can't or should not put on a dog - loved the dogs I got in Chicago and even the plain vendor-cart dogs with sauerkraut in New York and what's better then a steamed hot dog on a summer night at the ballpark with only Bertmans ballpark mustard on it in Cleveland or another baseball stadium?

Wow - summer is going fast!! FARK!

There are only 4 things that should ever be put on a hot dog...

1_ Mustard
2_ Onions
3_ Chili

and most importantly......

4_ Coleslaw

Born and rasied here, that's what you know a dog to be, I ask for the extra celery salt. That is the ingredient that makes 'em...

But, I saw this show on FoodNetwork - The Best Thing I ever Ate - Totally Fried

The lady was talking about this dog in Fairfield, CT - a deep fried dog from Rawley's Drive In. Wow! Not that I don't love my Chicago style, but man would I like to try that thing...

Those hot dogs look pretty good, I would try it twice. I love hot dogs. I like to get them at gas stations when I'm traveling, you know the ones, the leathery ones on the rotisserie. Nothing but mustard. Kind of like playing Russian roulette though.

Now if it were a sausage, anything goes. For a hot dog though, I'm pretty much in agreement with this gentleman. :-P

Nice job for a southern boy, GD :-D I'd eat that! there are a few places around here that deep fry the dogs, but most steam them or char them on the grill.

There is this old guy from Chicago that has a hotdog cart near my house. He sells those Chicago style hotdogs using only the Vienna all beef hotdogs. He also sells the Chicago/Italian style roast beef sandwiches. I stop and see him every time I am near there when he is open. You don't even want to mention Nathens Hotdogs in his presence. Chicagoans and New Yorkers have this strong rivalry in regards to their hotdogs as well as the pizza. I have yet to find a better street dog than his.

I have never been to Chicago I doubt that I ever will but I find it hard to believe anyplace has better hot dogs than what they call Chicago Style if they are representative of what is sold there...

There used to be a place here in Kansas City Kansas called "Chicago Dog", sadly they went out of business. They had the best dogs I have ever had Period.

It had a special brand of all Beef Wiener on a Poppy Seed Bun and was covered with Bright Green Relish, Tomato, Pickle Spear, Sport Pepper, Celery Salt, Onion, Mustard. I think something else but can't remember what it was...

I could eat them everyday and never get tired of them...

I don't think there is anyplace in Kansas City Area now that specializes in Hot Dogs or for that matter sells them other than Sonic and Gas Stations... So Sad...

You have two Portillos locations right down the street from you Bob:

You can go to http://www.viennabeef.com/and order the whole kit. Vienna dogs, bright green relish (a must), poppy seed buns and Plushman's mustard. Add your own celery salt, sport pepers and dill pickle. Anything less is NOT a chicago dog. The vienna beef is awesome as well. Remember it's Italian Beff NOT French dip. I did this last time Bears were in Superbowl. Also homemade deep dish pizza.

I admit the Chicago dogs have grown on me since moving here in 82, but I do miss Lafayette coney's from Detroit!

as a Chicago native I have to say that if you're ever visiting and looking for a good hotdog, you have to try Byrons on Irving Park. Don't blink if you're looking for it because you will miss it. There are no seats and the place only holds about 10 people max. I don't even think they have ketchup on site and you will probably be asked to leave if you want some on your dog!
