What’s your favorite Chicago dog?
John, I cannot tell you how much time I have spent pondering that question. At the moment, I like Poochie’s char dog best, but that’s partly because I like Poochie’s fries so much, too. For years, Superdawg was at the top of my list, and maybe still ought to be. And before that I was a Byron’s fan (love their motto: "Thee Hot Dog"). As a teenager on the North Shore, I must’ve gone to Big Herm’s three or four times a week. Last time I ate at the Wiener’s Circle, I thought, This is the greatest … and Gold Coast, when it was on State Street, was unsurpassed. So you see how indecisive I am? Honestly, I don’t know if there’s a clear hierarchy among the best of the best.
I do agree that I am one lucky son-of-a-gun, having spent nearly all my life in Chicago and Connecticut, which are, with New Jersey, the Triumverate of Tube Steaks.[:D]
