OK, I'll play - I put it to you, Dear Farker, that hot dogs as a culinary dish are overrated, and that the actual hot dog itself never measures up to the  idea of a hot dog, or the memory of what you were doing when you consumed said hot dog. And I say this as someone who has partaken of Nathan's on Coney Island, Ted's of Buffalo and Tempe, Falls View in NJ, various Detroit and Chicago establishments, and the Varsity across the street from Georgia Tech.

Stick some ketchup on a hot dog and it's great.

I've eaten hot dogs at a frightening number of those places.

Rutt's Hut at number 2?  Really?  Sure they have that weird New Jersey style relish, but come ON.

The wonders of modern technology.

Just make sure it's not too much ketchup.

Any list that includes Pink's is already admitting they don't actually bother tasting the hot dogs.  Pink's is shiat.  If you're in L.A. and want a dog, go down the street from there and eat at Carney's.

Lafayette Coney Island should be #1 but glad it's on the list.

Ah.  That's a shame.  Two weeks short of its one year anniversary.  Two weeks, one day short of its first run through Fark.

Gray's Papaya is the only one of those I've had. Fast, cheap, not bad, but not any better than Oscar Meyer. Plus they've got that weird relish-like sauerkraut instead of real sauerkraut.

Hey, who looks at silly things like details??

\Heinz & decent mustard on regular dogs, peppers and onions or sauerkraut on brats, the rest is just culinary masturbation.

Jesus once said "It's better to be a soulless ginger, than to be one  who puts ketchup on a hot dog"

/Actually he didn't say that

Yes, can't have the delicious hog lips, anuses, and bug parts covered up with ketchup!
 
2014-04-09 06:34:55 PM  
People, people! Can't we all just agree that no matter what you put on top of it, no matter where you buy it, a hot dog is simply a delicious sandwich?
 
2014-04-09 06:38:12 PM  
I've had a few of those. King Davids in Indy is decent. But frankly I don't go out of my way for a dog.
 
2014-04-09 06:41:08 PM  
New York sucks.

Also, ask your mom.

There is a place outside of DC called Greatest American Hot Dogs:
http://greatestamericanhotdogs.com/

Really tasty. They do one with bulgogi and kimchee; another hawaiian style with fried spam, homemade pineapple relish, fried onions; another with coleslaw and corned beef and pastrami and fried pickles. It's nuts.
 
2014-04-09 06:47:10 PM  
Rutts Hut is the best hotdog I've ever had.

As far as the actual quality of the hot dog itself I was going to say Katz's.  I buy them to grill at home.

So I am satisfied enough with the list to not fly into one of my patented Intwerwebby some intern done farked up compiling their list rage.
 
2014-04-09 06:47:17 PM  
Give me a yellow dog with onions or kraut, or a full-on Carolina dog with chili, cheese, mustard, onions and slaw.

I might even go full redneck and put ketchup on a naked dog if I'm in a hurry and not in the mood for mustard.

huh, I wasn't aware they even made pizza in Chicago.  I had this weird round casserole thingy there once, though, and it was pretty good.
 
2014-04-09 06:49:25 PM  
After posting, I just realized that I actually have Kielbasas on the stove simmering with kraut and apples.  Those will get a good hot mustard.

Olneyville N.Y. System, North Providence, R.I.: NY System Dog

Dear God, nothing like it. I can taste these things in the dreams of my childhood. So good. Sooooo gooood.
 
2014-04-09 06:50:07 PM  
yes, mustard is superior to ketchup, but ketchup is more than welcome on a hotdog. A hotdog is an excellent vehicle for nearly any topping.

A Natickite on fark? it's more likely than you think(I guess).

/Caseys is farkin pissah though.

Store bought nacho cheese, a crispy slice of bacon and some pico on any store bought dog.  Yum.

Well there's your first problem right there, you're paying $6 for a farking hot dog.  The best hot dogs are made at home on the grill, a frying pan will do if necessary, just never ever ever ever ever BOIL them. If they don't have a little char on the outer skin, they're cooked wrong.
 
2014-04-09 06:52:05 PM  
It's not about the dog. It's about the experience. Sitting under an oak tree with a dog off a cart and a cold beer while watching motorcycles haul ass through the corkscrew on a Sunday afternoon? Perfect. Or at a ball game. Or tailgating. BBQ with some friends, whatever. Really, the byproduct sausage is the least important element.

mayonnaise is key whenever you dress a dog.

"15) Walter's, Mamaroneck, N.Y.: With Homemade Mustard "

No. Entire list now suspect. Just "no"
 
2014-04-09 06:53:52 PM  
TFA says sauerkraut is an unpopular topping. This is correct, because if you are having kraut in a bun there had better be a bratwurst in there with it, not a hot dog.

My bucket list includes going to Chavez Ravine to catch a game and eat a Dodger Dog.  Unfortunately I never seem to have any time or reason to go to LA.
 
2014-04-09 06:54:21 PM  
As with so many things, homemade hot dogs can be pretty good also - they're very easy and you can control what goes in them.  You could also do the snob thing and claim to only eat hot dogs that no one else has ever heard of, made by a small charcuterie that only makes them on odd-numbered full moons.

The list has Bob's Drive-In in LeMars, Iowa at #34.  The whole loosemeat thing seems to be endemic in Iowa and criminally over-rated.  For something truly disgusting, have a wet Taylor's Maid-rite in Marshalltown.  If you're ever stuck in LeMars, spend your time at the Wells Dairy eating Blue Bunny Ice Cream.  You won't regret it.

I like a hot dog with a lot of garlic, so it's Nathans for me. Ball Park franks plump when you grill them, explode if you boil them.
 
2014-04-09 06:56:54 PM  
Glad to see that Flo's hot dogs is on that list.  I've eaten there many a time that i've vacationed in York Beach.  My vote though has to go to Gus's Hotdogs in Watervliet, NY.

/When I was younger (and thinner) I used to be able to slam down a plate of those things fully loaded, along with a Greek burger.

Mel's Hot Dogs in Tampa is one of a very few things I will miss about Florida when I escape.
 
2014-04-09 06:57:37 PM  
There is no debate to be had.

There are Sabretts, Hebew Nationals, and if you're having a dire emergency those Nathans things will do in a pinch.

Then there's a bunch of shiat in hot dog casings.

I definitely agree with Casey's.. also George's in Worcester, not because they're great but because they're so comfortingly familiar.
 
2014-04-09 07:01:15 PM  
Nothing wrong with hot dogs.  Everyone gets a craving for snouts and assholes from time to time, don't they?
 
2014-04-09 07:01:56 PM  
It's a hot dog.

Put whatever you want on it.

Extra points if you piss off a food snob.
