In Chicago, where there are more hot dog vendors per capita than fast food joints, newcomers might be surprised by what they end up with when they order a simple hot dog from a street vendor. That’s because the standard hot dog in the "Windy City" is more than a mesh of mystery meat by-products, and it comes with a whole lot more than just mustard and ketchup.

Thanks to Cone Brothers Ice Cream & Candy (www.conebrothers.com) at Penn Avenue & 66th Street in Richfield, Minneapolis-St. Paul area hot dog lovers can taste the Chicago difference without leaving the Twin Cities as of today (Tuesday, Aug. 20).

So what is an authentic ‘Chicago dog?’
It starts with premium-quality, Vienna-brand, all beef sausage. The Chicago-based Vienna company actually invented what later became known as the “Chicago Dog” during the great depression of the 1930s. Budgets were tight, so the enterprising sausage purveyors pimped out the hot dog with two fresh tomato wedges, fresh chopped onions, a pickle wedge, two optional sport peppers, yellow mustard and a dash of celery salt. 

It's the one-and-only, authentic Chicago-style hot dog–same as you would get on Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago! Cone Brothers will be serving them throughout the summer and fall seasons.
