bad dog! bad!

Ugh...If you ever walk by Steve's on Chicago and Franklin and say "Hmm, that looks like the type of place that could do a nice hot dog" think again. I made that mistake today.

Mushy dog, soggy--no, wet--bun (they obviously don't even shake the dog off when they remove it from the tepid water its been sitting in for hours), weird relish, lettuce (lettuce?), cucumbers (see lettuce?), and no mustard(!) I mean, who wants to put mustard on their own dog. You've got to take it apart, or else you just squeeze it on top and end up with a face and hands tinted turmeric yellow when you take a bite.

I know that in the grand scheme of things I shouldn't be bitching about a $3.00 lunch, but hey, sometimes you want a good hot dog...
