    In South Carolina, I got into eating "slaw dogs." That's a hot dog on a bun with chili, onions and creamy coleslaw on top, ketchup and mustard optional. I liked mine with pimento cheese instead of chile and yes, please, to the ketchup and mustard. A hamburger done up in a similar fashion is termed "all the way."

    how does this make you feel?

    It makes me think of a child’s Birthday party.

    Actually, that's a regular hot dog in WV - you order a hot dog with everything, you get chili, slaw, onions, ketchup, and mustard.

    I didn't even know hot dogs came any other way until I got out of the state! When I moved to PA and told my co-workers, they thought it sounded terrible, until I brought hot dogs in one day and convinced them to try it :)

    Just don't put beans in that chili, and if you have a little relish, especially corn relish, put that on top, too!

    How do we feel about top-sliced hot dog buns? I mean, in THEORY it makes sense...it’s much more stable and won’t tip over. But, to me, it’s just so wrong.

    I would like that because I like crunch with my foods.

    yup - that's it! :D The best hotdogs are the ones made by the parents and sold at school sporting events concession stands; they usually use homemade chili sauce; nothing in a can will compare

    These must be American? Never seen before but they look awful.

    Hot dogs? The high quality ones are just an all-beef sausage, so they can be pretty good if you like that sort of thing. Every region has their own take on how to cook it, toppings, type of bun, etc. Here in Chicago they tend to look like this....boiled or steamed sausage on a poppyseed bun. Topped with mustard, onions, pickle relish, tomato slices, sport peppers, a pickle slice, and a sprinkle of celery salt. NO KETCHUP.

    the pickle slice sounds interesting. I can do without ketchup if it has good chili sauce. Not sure about the poppy seed bun, though.

    yup, they're American. To each his own, though - I've seen a few examples brought up in this very thread from other parts of the world where they are popular, and I'm thinking "you eat that?" lol

    Yup, this is what I am used to and like. Except I prefer it without the tomatoes.

    Can't do the poppy seed bun because the company I work for does a lot of federal contracts so we get to do random pee tests, but everything else sounds good!

    You say that like it's a bad thing. Breaded and fried brain is <3

    I haven't had corn on the cob in ages but, when I did, still on the cob, using both hands, lots of butter. And I'd work my way across.

    Damn, I used to love sucking the corn remnants off the cob part.

    We had corn on the cob on Father's Day. It was so yum.
