Serve Hot Dogs with Style at Your Special Event

The hot dog is truly an American treasure. The tasty treat has been a staple at baseball games and backyard barbeques for years, with it’s convenient shape for topping with condiments and munching down. A food with a history as rich as the hot dog is bound to find some variations in different parts of the country, and many cities and regions have put their stamp on the old favorite. Here are a few classic takes on the hot dog:

The Classic

Three squirts—ketchup, mustard, and relish—are all an old-fashioned dog really needs to tantalize the taste buds. This isn’t much of a specialty item. In fact, you can find it at just about every sporting event on the planet. That doesn’t take away from how delicious it is each and every time. The only thing to customize is how much of each condiment to put on.

The Coney

This one’s simple, but delicious: chili, mustard, and onions, and sometimes even cheddar cheese!

The Chicago

The Chicago style hot dog is often referred to as being “dragged through the garden”. That’s because it includes just about everything you’d find in a garden and more, including white onions, fresh tomatoes, sport peppers, as well as mustard, relish, a dill pickle, and a dash of celery salt to top it all off. One thing you won’t find on a Chicago dog is ketchup, and you may get laughed out of the building if you ask for it. Use a poppy seed bun for a truly authentic Chicago hot dog.

The Sonoran

There are many possible toppings for this Arizona favorite, including beans, onions, tomatoes, mayo, mustard, salsa, and even guacamole. But one thing remains consistent. It’s always wrapped in delicious, mesquite smoked bacon, then grilled to perfection.

The Slaw Dog

In the south, many liven up their hot dogs with a dressing of sweet, mayo-based coleslaw that will never disappoint, no matter where you are in the country.

Of course, the variations don’t end there—not even close.
