I have eater most of these and heard of all of these and more. I am very surprised that you did not include either the Chicago or New York style hot dogs. It seems that every part of the country has their own hot dog that is popular to the area. Some are well know whereas others are regional or local.

I have studied the history of hot hots. I have also read the ways people eat hot dogs in other countries. In Korea for example they eat hot dogs with kimchi on it. Those people who like hot foods might enjoy trying one of these.

My wife and I had a restaurant specializing in hot dogs. We also served hamburgers and many other items to include salad and soup in the winter.

There are so many different brands of honor dogs. We had customers ask about their favorite brand of hot dog. Being near a joint U.s. Army and U.S. Army so we had customers from everywhere. They frequently told us about their favorite hot dog. It was interesting. We introduced some of their favorites for a limited time. Some were fantastic and others were just ok.

We closed our restaurant after I had my stroke. I still love my hot dogs. I can only eat them occasionally due to doctor ordered diet. Did you know there is a restaurant in New York City that has a gourmet hot hog seven with toppings such as caviar and other exotic toppings.

Your article was good. Maybe I will write one some day.

Would love to be able to pin these on Pinterest but not interested in disabling my pop up blocker in order to do so. Everyone else doesn't require that in order to pin stuff.

Use the Pinterest share button on the left hand side of the page instead of the in-image pin it button. ;)
