Day 89: A Taste of Chicago

Who masters the Chicago dog outside the Second City?

Chris and Rob's Chicago Dog
When on the hunt for the best Chicago dog outside of Chicago, one must consider the exacting list of components necessary to even merit consideration: A beef frankfurter must be slipped inside a poppy seed bun and topped with mustard (no ketchup!), then piled high with white onions, sweet pickle relish, a dill pickle wedge, tomatoes, sport peppers and—most importantly—a dash of celery salt. Who goes above and beyond the fundamentals in our fair Twin Cities? Chris and Rob’s serves up the classic precisely right. A hot tip: Get a fire Polish instead of a plain hot dog for an extra kick.
