Interesting that Rhode Island never seems to come up in a hot dog discussion. I don't know if their New York System qualifies as a true hot dog since it is cut from a longer segment. is served in a hot dog roll with traditional hot dog toppings like mustard, chili, onions and celery salt. Beside, I don't like salad on my hot dog and poppy seeds get stuck in my teeth!!!

I guess this means all those hot places in Connecticut are crappy huh? LOL

Deep fried 12" hot dogs from Connecticut were always my favorite.

The main hot dog in Chicago (as most should know) is a Vienna Beef with natural casing. My pet peeve is many/most joints will proudly advertise the real thing and then serve you a skinless Vienna hot dog. The taste is still king, but without that magic snap and juiciness of the natural casing. Also you want Rosens Buns. And lastly, there are 2 kinds of Chicago style - Depression style (mustard onion relish and sport peppers with no poppy seed bun and the fries rolled into it) or the typical one 'dragged tru da garden' (mustard, onion, tomatoes, relish, sport peppers, celery salt on a Rosen's poppy seed bun).
