- Fab Hot dog - Not for chili dogs but the street dog, rippers are fantastic, Street dog
- Carney's chili dog
- Pinks jalapeno chili cheese dog, though I also like to get this with just mustard
- The Stand Big Red 1/4-lb Chili Dog
- Costco with Kraut
- Pastrami Burrito Dog at Pinks (i like it better than Oki's)
My favorite place to get dogs is Fab Hot Dog. Great variety, you can get anything in a footlong version and the tots are great!
These are by far my favorite take-home. I find the dogs with pork have a tendency to be not as juicy and the Boar's Head seem to lack enough seasoning. Nathans all-beef have a stronger taste that stands out even buried under kraut or onions. I still see them in the casing at Smart & Final and Sprouts, Gelson's. Albertson's used to carry them but haven't been in a while.
Also, love Vienna beef.
My favorite used to be Best Kosher out of Chicago. I had them send me cases and they had a special natural casing version they only sold to butcher shops. Picture the Costco dog with a casing.
