  1. I like Vienna beef also I was getting them from my local Walmart here in Ohio now I can’t find them they’re delicious however I would like to warn you about bone chips at first we never had a problem with them and then it was almost a common thing to find rather large bone chips in them be careful eating them

  2. I don’t know what’s better the freshness of the ingredients or you falling in love with dogs!! You rock…

  3. We call that threw the garden… I'm happy you didn't add Ketchup big no no for the people that didn't knw. Good job Sir now I want

  4. I visited Chicago this last weekend and had Portillios. The Italian steak and Sasuage was incredible. I didnt get to have the famous Chicago dog so i was a little upset. The chicago lifestyle is really something of its own

  5. in detroit the "coney dog" ( BEANLESS spiced chili, mustard, diced onions on a vienna) are expensive to buy sometimes but if you look at how much vienna hot dogs are you can understand why its best to go on monday because traditionally theyd sell you coney dogs to prepare for lent or fat tuesday

  6. I did my best with condiments I could find (beef vienas because frankfurters are bloody hard to find and normal relish because it's the only on sale here) and fuck me this is what I call a hotdog! Let's call it chicago-ish hotdog and I give it 6 stars out of 5.

  7. Lived in Asheville NC for six years and there was an awesome hot dog place in downtown. Owner was a Chicago resident and the Chicago dog was her signature dog (and there was a great selection of famous regional hot dogs). Incredible. Never had anything quite like it since. Oh, like the other commenters are saying, this is the real deal.

  8. I moved to the south years ago……….man i miss them!!!!!!!! THE BEST HOTDOG EVER! Oh theres some great food in the south too but nothing like my CHICAGO, if you ever goto Chicagao goto to the Taste of Chicago Festival or the Jazz or Blues Fests, they used to have Smoke(pot) Ins in the 1980s-90s. Oh the Piano bars are the funniest thing, very classy expensive Piano bar Restuarants. Over the years the city goes back in forth in corruption from Al Capone up to Mayor Daily and the Irish mob and the Gangs…to very progressive protests of the 1960s , even now, the whole city gets involved because they get sick in tired of both sides of corruption(street and politics) AND THEY GET SERIOUS and just like New York are the originartors of the neighbor watches, not the suburban version.

  9. As someone born in Chicago, I can confirm that this is how it's done. If anyone's wondering, Ketchup is not recommended, it ruins the overall flavor.

  10. For ever we couldn't get Vienna sport peppers or the neon relish, well low and behold I went into one of our local grocery store the other day and there they were, I'll be making Chicago dogs this weekend.

  11. You nailed it. I grew up in Chicago on the south side in the 50's and 60's. Our neighbor had an auto parts store on about 75th and commercial avenue and I built my engine for my 1941 Willys coupe in his fathers shop in 1967. I would stop at Carl's Red Hots and get two Vienna Chicago dogs with fries for 25 cents each.The only drinks they had were coffee and Nedlog rootbeer. Those were the days !!!

  12. Nicely done. You take me back to my childhood in Chicago. I still can’t put catsup on a dog. Just weird! 😆

    FYI, Plochman’s is pronounced Plock-man’s (if you want to sound truly “in the know”).

  13. I live on the west coast and went to a place that made chicago style dogs, probably the best type out there no doubt.

  14. I drive home from Indy and get a Chicago dog and Maxwell polish. "You gonna wait on your wife?" You ate one without her. jk Lol

  15. Wally's used to be on Central and Diversey in Chicago and used David Berg hot dogs and they had some delicious dogs.

  16. I really enjoyed that. A lot of my family's in Chicago, and you just made me homesick. Can you do Cincinnati chili?

  17. My husband loves hot dogs I make them once a week I will be adding this recipe. He builds a lot of toppings on his and fancy mustards pickles relishes crunchy onions I actually make a board of all the topping ( kinda like a little buffet for him). I also cook German bratwurst for foot ball season. He told me he thanked God for sending me to him because I get his hot dog foodie obsession. I have never made the Chicago dog but now I’m confident to do it! 🙏🏾Thank You 😊

  18. Working in the Chicago area for the last 23 years they do grow on ya but still not fond of that neon relish but they are great
