Hot Dog of the Day: Chicago's Dog House

Today's hot dog is from Chicago's Dog House.

Mayor Daley dog at Chicago's Dog House

Chicago's Dog House I'm a sucker for anything named after a Chicago celebrity, so I was all-in for the Mayor Daley dog ($3.50). Topped with Irish cheddar, caramelized onion and a smoky Dijon mustard, our former mayor's namesake dog picks up sweetness from the onions and a good bite from the Dijon. If anything, this hot dog could do without the Irish cheddar, which is neither cold nor melted and just sort of sits on the dog without adding any real flavor. What this meal can't do without are the well-seasoned and crispy fries on the side. —Erin Delahanty
