    Only Chicago could convince me that the New York hot dog was not, in fact, anywhere near the apex of the hot dog arts. (The Chicago Red Hot deserves that honor). – Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations Read more

    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
