I'm leaving for Chicago on Tuesday and find myself with an especially vexing problem: I don't know where to get the best hot dog.
I've actually been to Chicago quite a few times, but for some reason whenever I go there the people I'm with always take me for sushi. Which is weird, since I'm not really a huge sushi fan. Oh, sure, I'll eat it, but if I have any choice in the matter, I'm always going to go for cooked animal-based food over uncooked animal-based foods. I think it has something to do with being from California. People assume that if you're from California, you must want to eat sushi. Pretty much, I'd just like to have a steak. Or a hot dog.
Which brings me back to the question at hand: Where is the best hot dog in Chicago? Is it Superdawgs? I've seen that one on the Food Network several times, as well as in one of the documentaries on PBS where they go around to every state and eat junk food and film it and talk about it, which sounds to me like a great fucking job to have. People, I beg of you, give me the skinny. I need me some nitrites!
