Chicago Style Hot Dog In Boston

StacyTheGreat | Feb 14, 2006 10:46 PM

I'm a BU student originally from the Chicago area. Back home, I feel like there are hot dog places on every corner and everyone has their favorite. I've found my favorite deli, thai place, burger, dimsum, north end pasta etc but I'm still desperately searching for even a decent dog in Boston. If one more person tells me Spikes is "awesome" I may get violent. I know hoping for an authentic Chicago Style hot dog (poppyseed bun, boiled vienna dog, celery salt, blissfully unnatural relish, and so on) may be overly optimistic but I'm hoping someone can at least suggest a decent place where a good hot dog costs less than five dollars. I'm not looking for gourmet, hot dogs are one of those things that shouldnt get gussied up. I'd settle for the location of a hot dog cart. Also, I dont have a car, so it needs to be T accesible.
Hot dogs are maybe the one thing from home I really miss, I can't even find the right things to buy. Help!
