Just a quick note about Downtown Dogs. They make a good, representative Chicago dog.
I had the char dog (the only way to go, IN MY HUMBLE OPINION), and it’s got all the stuff on it. It tastes just like it should. The fries are good. I even don’t mind that damn sweet relish but I did take off the tomato which was obviously not in season and looked like something they make astronauts eat in space. The main problem is that all those toppings are wet and make the bun mealy by halftime.
Whatever. It’s good. It’s part of the meat wave.
