    This weathered looking stand on the South Side is famous for the mother-in-law, a corn meal tamale in a hot dog bun with chili on top.

    Featured on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations. Get the Mighty Dog. It's a hot dog with a tamale, chili, and cheese all on the same bun. Get all the fixings on it as well
