Hey Subby, do you realize that in spite of their hotdog peculiarities and their absurdly thick pizza that Chicago is one of the premier food destinations in the world?
 
2014-07-12 06:14:06 PM
Hot dogs shouldn't have ketchup on them. That's just gross.
 
2014-07-12 06:14:46 PM
Why? Why would you do such a thing?
 
2014-07-12 06:17:29 PM
For some reason, the thought of Chicago pizza always brings Sweeny Todd to mind.
 
2014-07-12 06:29:19 PM
A hot dog without ketchup is like a cheesesteak without the cheese.

Mustard and relish.  Mustard and sauerkraut for a Polish sausage.  Ketchup is evil.

Hmm, yet they couldn't rain out the crappy Northside baseball team.

Everyone knows you put mayo on hot dogs. Also, Chicago pizza is the best pizza.

There ain't no friggin catsup in my garden.

You can't even go to the Taste of Chicago anymore, it's too crowded.
 
2014-07-12 07:29:10 PM
Sauerkraut and BBQ sauce from Top Dog in Rockport is mighty tasty
 
2014-07-12 07:30:52 PM
Eh, just puts off target practice.
 
2014-07-12 07:31:00 PM
Anyone over the age of 10 who puts catsup on a hotdog is a cretin.

The rain also spared those people from getting shot in Chicago.

Deep dish pizza is tasty, but it takes too damn long to make.

fark your ketchup on hotdogs. That's just disgusting. I'm not even going to get into it with you mayo sickos.

Chicago pizza is fine. It's really in a category all its own.
 
2014-07-12 07:33:36 PM
Sadly, Chicagoans are so foolish as to think the souce on a pizza goes over the cheese.

New Yorkers can't make a good pizza, either, so it's kind of a wash.
 
2014-07-12 07:35:02 PM
I'm finding these replies amusing as I'm about to dig into a Lou Malnati's Butter Crust Deep Dish Pizza.

snocone: Why? Why would you do such a thing?


I had this horrible notion.

Take one of those angel food cup things that you're supposed to use to make desserts (and DAMN i cannot think of what they are called) but, instead of thickly sliced strawberries and whipped cream, you put on chunks of hot dog, ketchup, and Cheez-Wiz.  It's like the most failuriffic pizza that ever failed.

This, is pointless.  It's like arguing over which order you put the ingredients onto a burger.  It eats and tastes the same.

Ketchup on hotdogs is disgusting. I only tolerate it out of kids (who I hope will eventually grow out of it).

"Greatest" can mean "largest" and it can mean "best", but this does not mean that largest and best are the same thing.

How does ketchup change anything? You're still eating everything except the moo or oink.

Chicago is so terrible we have only 40 million visitors each year.

You know, Yogi Berra didn't actually say half of the things that he said.

1. put ketchup on fries
2. put fries on hot dog
3. eat

Is this a sin? Gene & Jude's seems to think so...

/go there anyway

I stopped going to Taste of Chicago years ago when I saw McDonald's and Harold's Chicken Shack were there.
 
2014-07-12 07:40:35 PM
We just had this 'what goes on a hot dog' thread a few days ago.

Also, Subs McKensie, 'try and' is grammatically incorrect. 'Try to' is the proper form.
 
2014-07-12 07:41:39 PM
...sparing thousands from gun powder, smog, muggings, getting shot, dysentery, diarrhea, getting groped, pickpockets, and the hours and hours waiting in line to try western family hot dogs boiled in lake water.

ginandbacon: Hot dogs shouldn't have ketchup on them. That's just gross.


and it shouldn't have more condiments by volume than the dog itself.

Seriously, Chicago has good meat, so why do they hide it so much??? If the dogs are so good, shoulnt the additions be minimal?

"Try" and "stomach" can be two separate actions.  Try to stomach is a single action, "try and stomach" means that they will try AND they will stomach.  While awkward, It's grammatically correct if that was the point of view of the writer.

not really. cheese on top allows it to caramelize.

Chicago dogs are frickin' awesome.

Chicago meat/cheese casserole is horrible.

Hot dogs should really not have ketchup on them.

But Chicago "pizza" is an abomination.

Not to mention a barf-inducing food when it's 90 degrees and humid out.

see comment in previous thread regarding the hot dog being just a vehicle for shoveling crap down their throats, and if they were fully self-actualized and accepting of themselves, they'd just get out the soup ladle and spoon all of that ketchup/mayo/whatever right from the 5 pound tub to their frontal face hole.  The hot dog is not a thing to be enjoyed, it is an EXCUSE, nay, a MOCKERY of their own inability to think freely!  Every bite is an indictment of self-loathing!

Don't get me STARTED on what the fetishization of deep dish pizza so thick and cheesy that it is impossible to eat without a backhoe.  But if the day comes when you can go to CHicago and just buy a 44oz cup of melted cheeze with a 1/2" diameter straw to glurp it down with, I will be be completely unsurprised.
 
2014-07-12 07:51:20 PM
Their hotdogs are fine.  So far New York hotdogs.  Same as their pizza.  Oh my god I like both, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria.

/but Santa Maria BBQ is the only good BBQ
 
2014-07-12 07:51:43 PM
wow.  so much sentence fail.  forgot to put in words and stuff.  it's like you can SEE the bourbon going to work

Why do you people care so goddamn much what other people put on their hotdogs?  Everyone can put on their own choice of condiments without affecting your dog.

They won't let me adopt a hot dog so I have to live vicariously through others :( :( :(
