    Nathans in NY, Super Dawg in Chicago but nothing I have ever had beats Coney Island of Fort Wayne Indiana. They are to die for. I ate them every day for lunch as a kid growing up

    When I was a kid there was a local packing house (long gone now) that made the best. They were great big fat ones and they would just pop when you would bite.

    Wrigley Field has great dogs, the old Westward Ho casino in Vegas had great foot long dogs. I like mine with mustard and kraut or onions.

    The best store dogs are made by Oscar Mayer.

    Due to diet restrictions I only eat a couple of dogs a year and that is usually at a ballpark somewhere.

    Dam I wish I could have one now.

    This is the easiest question ever. Zweigles. Only available in Western New York. The White ones are the best.

    Home made hot dogs from any small town butcher shop. Go across the street to the bakery for some fresh baked buns. Slow cook on a grill. mmm mmmm

    SuperDawg dogs are good, but Flukys (since gone, I think, were some of the best. Also in Chi-town, the Portillos chain also makes a good dog.

    PS - NO Ketchup!

    Sir Missalot I saw a bumper sticker on a white Lumina the other day " I LOVE MY WIENER" it did have a outline of a Dacshound on it. Not sure if I spelled that right. LOL Bill

    Since moving to the Chicago area I have become accustomed to Portillo's Hot Dogs. ...made the true Chicago way. Poppyseed bun, all beef dog, mustard, relish, tomatoes, two hot peppers, and a pickle. Sounds really good right now since all I had for dinner was a piece of cake!

    About ten years ago there was a vendor at the "GRAND" that made the best Chicago style dogs I ever ate. Mike

    I like polish dogs with mustard and sauerkraut. And beef hot dogs with mustard and sweet or dill relish.<br>
    <br>
    And the best hot dogs are grilled.<br>
    <br>
    I DO NOT like chicken or turkey dogs, or extra-lean hot dogs. The extra lean ones burn on the grill.

    famil00, you're killing me!! I lived outside Chicago for nine years, and the only things I miss from up there are Gino's East pizza and hot dogs & Italian beef from Portillo's. Closest I've come here in Austin is a place called Lucky Dog's (owner is from Chicago).

    You know, a Hebrew National kosher dog from COSTCO for a buck and a half is one of the best bargains on the planet. The bun is good and fresh and the condiments are fine. You can make it how you like. Even comes with a refillable coke. Jake
