Chicago Dog @ Hot Dog City in Coddingtown Center (Santa Rosa)

Melanie Wong | Oct 16, 2006 12:12 AM

Today's lunch was a Chicago dog, $3.95, at the mall. Previously I'd tried the location downtown, and I found my chili dog report laminated in plastic and posted outside the Coddingtown Center location.

The Chicago dog here is pretty much textbook,
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago-...
)featuring a natural casing dog, slice of dill pickle, neon green pickle relish, chopped onions, sliced tomatoes (nice and ripe!), mustard, and sport peppers. But no poppy seed bun. The fragrance of the celery salt and the freshly chopped sweet onions was amazing and tasted even better.

I had this with the Thomas Kemper rootbeer on tap, $2.25, served in a big frosty mug. The server is careful to tilt the mug, then top it off with a nice head of creamy foam. She also holds it by the handle and the bottom to not leave any fingerprints on the mug. Classy, especially for a fast food joint.
