Alligator Hot Dogs Have Bite
Tuesday, February 9, 2010 17:31 GMTCHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) If youre hunting for a hot dog in Chicago, one restaurant slangs wieners with some serious bite.
Hot Dougs, The Sausage Superstore And Encased Meat Emporium, specializes in exotic hot dogs made of various game.
Owner Doug Sohn says hot sellers include the buffalo dog and alligator dog, which has a spicy grittiness to it.
The weirdest menu items are the rattlesnake hot dog and a sausage dubbed the Mountain Man made of elk, buffalo, venison, and antelope all in one.
The locale also offers gourmet toppings including truffles, fois gras, and fancy cheeses.
Sohn says his loyal customers who line up out the door each day will try anything at this point.
Patrons are so in love with the place, they even profess their love for each other there.
Sohn says theyve had both a marriage proposal and wedding in the restaurant where he had the honor of giving away the bride.
