Grilling Joshua Bousel 20 comments

Ketchup, mustard, relish...boring. There are so many more ways to top hot dogs than with just those condiments. Here are eight great topping ideas to try the next time you grill up some dogs. More

Excellent Tiny Wieners at Hot Dog Charlie's in Cohoes, NY

J. Kenji López-Alt 13 comments

I don't often make the trip way the heck upstate to my sister's place in the Keene Valley, but when I do decide to make the trek, hot dogs figure largely into the math. See, the drive up neatly bisects the heart of the New York-Connecticut-Pennsylvania-Michigan hot dog trail, with several important stops along Route 87. You did know that such a trail exists, right? And there are some mighty interesting dogs to be found along the way... More

Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs with Avocado, Tomato, Onion, Mayonnaise, and Potato Chips

J. Kenji López-Alt 4 comments

I started a Talk thread a couple weeks back in honor of National Hot Dog Day asking you guys what your favorite topping combinations are. To be frank, I didn't realize Serious Eats was populated by so many weirdos amazingly interesting people, but I relish every chance I get to ketchup with you guys, so it's nice to give our conversations that little kick in the buns every once in a while. This here post is about one of my favorite hot dog toppings. I hope it cuts the mustard.

Ack, I 'm terribly sorry for all that, I don't know what came over me. Jokes about sausages are the wurst.

Hot Slaw Dogs

J. Kenji López-Alt 13 comments

They always say living in the summertime is easy. Same goes for recipe development. Summer recipes tend to fall into two buckets: fresh produce very simply prepared, and backyard classics. So what makes recipe writing easy? Because pick any two things from within the same buckets, and chances are the flavors and the spirit are going to go well together. Case in point: cole slaw and hot dogs. More

Hot Slaw Dogs

Though not quite as iconic or popular as its sister the kraut-dog, the slaw dog tempers some of that tart flavor with a cool, creamy, and tangy slaw. More

Taste Test: Pepperidge Farms vs. Arnold/Oroweat Hot Dog Buns

Taste Tests J. Kenji López-Alt 26 comments

In the past, we've published taste test results for all-beef hot dogs and our favorite natural casing pork and beef hot dogs from Michigan, but we've never really addressed their partner in crime, the hot dog bun. Today we rectify that oversight by pitting the two biggest, baddest hot dog bun bakeries in the world against each other in a head-to-head, one-on-one cage match. Only one bun can emerge victorious. Unless, you know, it's a tie. Which it wasn't. More

Standing Room Only: Prepare for Delicious Confusion at Johnny O's

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 5 comments

I walked up to Johnny O's with the intent to fall in love. I have a serious weakness for old school Chicago stands, especially ones with faded signs and walkup windows. Added to this, Johnny O's specializes in two hard to find Chicago classics: the breaded steak sandwich and the mother-in-law. Very few places serve either, and I've never been anywhere that served both. More

It was clear from the moment I moved here that Chicago cared about its hot dogs more than any other place I'd ever been. And after five years of searching, here are my ten favorite Chicago-style hot dogs. More

Beyond the Chicago Dog: 8 Haute Hot Dogs We Love in Chicago

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 3 comments

While Chicago is associated with one particular style of hot dog, in practice we're more of an equal opportunity hot dog admirer. Honestly, we'll try pretty much anything on top of a sausage—just so long as it's good. That's especially true now, as chefs around town have decided to experiment with the hot dog, topping it with ingredients we'd never even consider as possibilities. More

A Sandwich a Day: The Sea Dog at Dat Dog in New Orleans

A Sandwich a Day Abby McCartney 4 comments

The "dog" is a long strip of tempura-battered cod, lightly fried and served on a sweet and buttery hot dog bun. Top it with slaw, sweet relish, and tartar sauce for just the right combination of crunchy, tangy, and creamy. And don't forget a side of crawfish fries! More

When it comes to hot dogs, Chicagoans have opinions. We care where they are made, who serves them, and what tops them. We will drive all over the city to satisfy a craving, passing lesser stands that just aren't quite good enough. More

Standing Room Only: Pick Up the Polish at Parse's Red Hots

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

In a city where most stands serve the exact same brands in exactly the same way, Parse's deserves a visit. The northwestern stand serves an incredible Polish sausage from nearby Harczak's Sausage shop. More

Hot Dog Of The Week: David's Kosher Taste Test

Hot Dog of the Week Hawk Krall 9 comments

David's Kosher is an interesting new hot dog brand that seems to be pushing the "healthy"—or at least "gluten free, uncured, natural"—angle, along with the kosher and regional Chicago angle. These all-beef franks basically taste like a fusion between a New York-style Hebrew National and a milder Chicago Vienna Beef dog. I tested them out with a couple different methods and various levels of toppings. More

Standing Room Only: Rand Red Hots is Ready for Spotlight

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 3 comments

Rand Red Hots is not a copy of Gene & Jude's, Redhot Ranch, or any other minimalist hot dog stand in the area. It's actually unique, which is about as big of a compliment as I could give it. More
