Ketchup has the tendency to make whatever you're eating taste like ketchup. It masks the true flavor of the hotdog.
That's why I like it on my hot dogs.

But it's a Chicago thing not to put it on hot dogs isn't it? I was trying to be with it so Kestra takes me on a tour.

And yeah, I haven't had any in the house for years.
Yep! Actually if you order a hot dog Chicago style you'll be getting it with mustard, onions, a pickle, celery salt, peppers, tomatoes and ... what am I forgetting? Oh, relish. I feel weird that the conversation has come this far and Timby hasn't gotten involved.

I've never had Chicago hot dogs, just Chicago-style pizza. But if they don't include any ketchup whatsoever then I like the things already.
Ahhh, you are making me want Giordano's again and I just had it! Teacake, we'll do the pizza first. So good.

Thanks. I hope I never take it for granted. Also if you do make a trip out here, I suggest avoiding the dead of winter (unless you like cold and windy) and the middle of summer (unless you like heat and humidity).

I am a Quad Citian. We exist in a bubble universe that just happens to intersect both Illinois and Iowa.

And no, I'm still from Illinois. I have only been to Iowa once in the last month.

I never lived in Chicago. I'm a suburbanite through and through.

I felt the same weirdness.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

All this talk of Chicago made me revisit the streets I grew up on in Chicago and that led to a whole rehash of all my old stomping grounds you know like forty years latter there is still that tree I had the tree house in, and the place I kissed my first real gf.. then some added things too but I suddenly realized that they don't tear down the houses I was liven in just because I moved on. What made me think that ,, Ok I know this answer ... since I lived around in jersey after high school a few of my places where I lived was arsoned out of time and space.. weird but true some how. ahhah the fires of hell were drawn there go figure. anyway I also visited grandmas and grandpas apartment. at 2113 ave 14.. and then copied and such the Google earth image

oh and that stoup was where grandpa would sit pass out on drunken binges .. by like noon time.. and yes he would just urinate on him selfmmmmmm I have just gone down memory lane too far.. hehehe reality need something out of .. you know you did not have to read all this.. but anyway

Yep that is what was on the "Chicago Style" hot dog I bought at a place the other day. Except I asked for no celery salt as I have a low tolerance for salt and never add it to anything. Mine was awful, the hot dog was totally mushy, the bun was disgusting.. the only good thing was the peppers. But this is what happens when you imitate styles from other countries.. also hot dogs are not a thing here so the chance of getting a good one is slim, if you can even find one.

The best hot dog I've had here was from Costco.

And think, that stoop looks straight out of Sesame St. And yes I know it's a different city

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Since we're on a Chicago kick, I offer these pics from 2011:

Wrigley Field



US Cellular Field



Me in the Steve Bartman seat at Wrigley



I must apologize for the lack of ivy in the Wrigley pic, and the fog in the US Cellular pic. I was there in the first week of April, and it was below freezing the whole time. (When I went down to the Cell, I got off the Red Line and I could not see the stadium because there was so much fog.) The reason why I was there so early in the year: It was, quite literally, the only time out of the entire season that the Cubs and Whitesox were in town at the same time.

When it comes to any hot dog the following mathematical rules always apply:

Mustard > Ketchup
Chili > Mustard
Chunky chili > All three
