The Chicago hot dog is held dear by many who think they know what makes a Chicago hot dog. But is there consensus?
There’s the stripped down Gene and Jude’s hot dog, just onions and mustard.
And there’s the fully loaded Portillo’s, a poppy seed bun, onions, relish, long dill pickle and sports pepper, which is a type of Chicago hot dog, too.
And then there’s the even more fully loaded dog with sliced cucumbers and tomatoes, impossible to eat without prior disassembly.
Anyway, do you have a favorite dog? Do you consider your favorite a “Chicago hot dog”?
