Baseball, Hot Dogs...
Hot Dogs are certainly one of America's favorite foods and has a long-lasting association with Baseball. Who doesn't remember going to a Baseball game as a kid and eating a Hot Dog.
Not long ago, we wanted to take our kids to a Chicago Cubs game, but the summer ran away from us. Although we never did make it to the friendly confines of Wrigley Field, we did go to an Arizona DiamondBacks game while on vacation. Since this was the kid's first major league baseball game, we decided to give them the true baseball experience and hand over the the "big-bucks" for over-priced Hot Dogs. I am not so sure they remember much about the game, but they will always remember the "colorful" vendors and certainly never forget their first time eating a Hot Dog in a real baseball stadium.
As Good as it Gets!
A good Hot Dog can be a thing of beauty and a stupendous culinary experience, but the Chicago Style Hot Dog has been described as the quintessential Hot Dog. Years ago, Sinead O'Connor had the hit song, "Nothing compares to you". We like to believe that she was singing about her love for the Chicago Dog.
We are often asked why we created a website dedicated to the Chicago Dog. The answer is simple, we are passionate about our Hot Dogs and want to share that passion with you. After browsing through our site, we sincerely hope that you too will agree that nothing compares to a Chicago Style Hot Dog.
As transplants from the Chicago area, we truly miss the plethora of Hot Dog places.

We are locating and reviewing every place in the Madison area that serves Chicago's best. We also plan on reviewing places in Chicago. If you think you know where you can get the quintessential Chicago Dog, please let us know and we will try to do a review.
