Top 10 Hot Dogs in Chicago

So I've started posting for this website called Menuism. It's going to be a way for me to get the word out on some of my favorite places. Check out the post I did this month. Below is a somewhat more JEC version for those native Chicagoans out there. Hope you like it.

I had some trouble with the inspiration for this months Top 10 list. In all fairness, I haven't eaten out in like 2 weeks between passover and a busy surgical rotation. Then, when I came home to see the Cubs take care of business in their first game of the season, I thought it would good timing to go over my favorite hot dogs. I would like to preface this post by saying that I haven't written about everywhere on this list. I've been eating hot dogs for as long as my dad could sneak me food behind my mom's back, and I can remember which of these are my favorites. It's also worthwhile to mention that there are a ton of hot dogs in this city and only so many arteries to go around. Finally, Ron, before you voice your inevitable disagreement with this list, please take a deep breath.

10. Wiener Take All
- You might have your favorite neighborhood spot growing up, and this one is mine. Ask for Drew and you'll get the V.I.P. treatment (that everyone else in Buffalo Grove gets for knowing Drew). Bring your little league jersey and try to score some free stuff.

9. Mustard's Last Stand
- Before watching a college football team in a high school stadium, gorge yourself on one of these bad boys (but only if you don't want Buff Joe's).

8. Jim's Original
- Stronger with the Polish than the dog, but I'm going to count all encased meats with this list.

7. Portillos

6. The Wieners Circle

5. Chicago's Dog House

4. Franks N' Dawgs

The Brunch Dog

3. Phil's Last Stand
- Just try and get Phil to stand up!

2. Hot Doug's

The Boar Sausage

1. Superdawg

Least Favorite (just to rub some salt in the wound): Odges
