I've always been after the perfect tubesteak. Had em in Cincy, New Yawk and Europe. Here are some my favorites, what's yours?
Hebrew National, Nathan's or Boarshead, finely and I MEAN finely diced white onion, Ba-Tampte mustard (get at delis- it rocks) on a buttered, griddle toasted brat-sized bun. You can also add some not too sweet creamy coleslaw on top of the 'dogs, optional, but excellent! Throw in a couple Ba-Tampte half sour kosher dills and I'm in Heaven.
Go Figure- I'm Lutheran!






Good Lord, I have another hotdog experience.
While in Reykjavik, there were "pylsa" stands everywhere. The most famous one faces the harbor. It's always busy, especially after bar time. Clinton even ate there!
Their 'dogs are made of pork and lamb. It's the mildest lamb I've ever eaten, almost like Kobe beef in it's tenderness; why the grind it too, I don't know...but I digress.
They are put on a steamed bun, topped with mustard, remoulade sauce, the "K" word, chopped white onions and deep fried onion bits- kinda like the ones you use on green bean casserole.
Holy Crap!! These things are unbelieveable!!

I've wanted to try all the places named in Rick Sebak's A Hot Dog Program on PBS.

And, then some.

Thanks for the review of the Icelandic version of "the dog".

I used to hit a joint in Overland Park , Kansas called Franks Alot. Good Chicago style dog , squeaky snappy bark when bit, Day-Glo blue relish, celery salt, cabbage, tomatoes, spicy mustuhd and a poppy seed bun.

I love hot dogs.

All beef, kosher franks on a fresh steamed bun with the following (Chicago style): yellow mustard, chopped raw onions, bright green "deli" relish (not the regular sweet pickle relish you find in grocery stores), a couple of sport peppers, a mild dill pickle spear, and if you happen to be in the Bridgeport neighborhood (White Sox territory), a dash of celery salt.

I like most all-beef kosher franks I've had, but would loosely rank them as follows, Vienna Beef, Hebrew National, Klement's (Milwaukee-area meat company), Best's Kosher, David Berg, Nathan's. Just tried Nathan's for the first time a few weeks ago - good, but a bit too much garlic for my tastes.

Another variation, of which I partake about once a month or so: Maxwell Street style - Vienna beef, natural casing wiener with naught but yellow mustard, sport peppers, and LOADS of grilled onions.

When I was in NYC in March, I tried both Gray's Papaya and those carts . . . Sabrett's or something like that. Neither one did it for me (although the Papaya drink kicked a**).

Hey Droog, no offense but that sounds terrible. Not the type of hotdog you like, but all that dribble that you put on it. If that is what Chicago style hot dogs are I will take a pass. How do you even taste the hot dog with all those condiments. A great New York Hot Dog consists of a quality hot dog (Hebrew National, Sabrets, Nathans) on a bun with spicey brown mustard. Thats it, pure perfection. The only other thing that will ever find it's way on my hot dog would be sour kraut.

This is the way hot dogs are supposed to be made. It's in the Bible.

Skins Hot Dogs from the upstate of S.C.
My wife has perfected the chili recipe. 3 dogs, chips and Coke is all I need.

This is one of those places mentioned in that PBS show, right?

One of these days I'll get out of my Left Coast locale (still have yet to even make it 30 miles north to Pink's) and make it to great places like this...and Nu-Way...and eventually Papaya King & Nathan's, too.

I love hot dogs, but a good one is hard to find in South Florida. I enjoy this website (HollyEats). This guy knows his hot dogs and he rates the places in grease stains instead of stars!

To me, when you look for the origin of the American Hot Dog, you look to Coney Island.
Nathan's famous



They are no longer a nickel, more like $2.75, but still good.

the best hot dog experience in the world is the weiners circle on clark street in chicago. the joint is open all night and about 1am is prime time. the chicks that work there are in your face, vulgar, abusive comedians that will attack you the minute you walk in. the more you give back to em the better it gets. believe me this place is not for the faint hearted or meek. this dog joint was a favorite of mine the whole time i lived in chicago and has only gotten better thru the years. weve taken the whole abb there a couple times, once after a chicago theatre run on our way out of town and again this summer after the rosemont show. haynes even takes the mule bus there after chitown shows. the place is an absolute hoot and the meat is spectacular. but the show is the dealio. dont even enter the kitchen if ya cant stand the heat.
the meat is as good as the show too. vienna all beef dogs sliced and grilled over open flame or hot grill or steamed. served up chicago style or with chili or cheese or any way you want it. on soft steamed buns and served to you with more sarchasm than an ex-wife will dish out to ya. great burgers, polish sausages or smokin vienna redhots. its all great with killer fries --skins on and fried right. but the show is the reason to stand in line for 20 minutes waiting to order with the food the bonus at the end of the line.
dont miss it if youre in chicago.

Thanks for sharing, verbal! I don't do the hot dog thing anymore, and I can't find a good veggie one anyplace, but when I lived near Chicago I was always tempted to try that place.

Crif Dogs in the Lower East Side of Manhattan has my vote. Maybe not for everyone, but damn good none the less.

They have alot of variations on their dogs, but my favorite was either the Chihuahua or the Good Morning.

Chihuahua: Bacon wrapped dog that is fried and topped w/ avocado, s. cream and salsa
Good Morning: Bacon wrapped dog that is fried and topped w/ cheese and a fried egg.

They may not be traditional, plain dogs, but they are killer.

Check it out if you want a dog that is different.

It ain't. Not a whole lot of any of that stuff. Part of the appeal is "hot on bottom, cold on top." Give it a try.
