    Chicago hot dogs are the best. They are on a vienna roll with poppy seeds, fabulous hot dog bun. The hot dog is way fatter than NY. They put a dill pickle spear in the bun and 10 or 12 toppings, chili, kraut, green peppers, tomatoes, onions, sweet relish, on and on. You choose however many you want.
