Only Chicago could convince me that the New York hot dog was not, in fact, anywhere near the apex of the hot dog arts. (The Chicago Red Hot deserves that honor). Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations

This weathered looking stand on the South Side is famous for the mother-in-law, a corn meal tamale in a hot dog bun with chili on top.
