    I don't know that I've read him, but I know I've got some interesting books on these topics. Early in college I got heavily wrapped up in Malthus and read anything I could get my hands on regarding this an related topics.

    I put ketchup on my hot dog EVERY TIME. Anyone who doesn't like it can bite me.

    I'm not particularly adverse to putting ketchup on a hot dog. But I've gotta admit, Chicago style is on a whole other level. But I'm with you... I've never understood the concept of "hot dog snobbery".

    I'm sure our friends here in Arizona can attest to the thing of wonder that is a Sonoran hot dog.

    Default chick fil-a fries

    normally i dont care for waffle fries, actually i dont consider them fries, but chick fil-a has some pretty good ones.

    we tried wendys new fries, with a single and chocolate shake, about on a par with all the others, we were never crazy about their old fries.

    the new ones are sorta like steak and shake.

    and you better believe fries cooked in beef tallow were better, and no that does not mean smart, just delicious.

    The new ones are nothing like Steak and Shake - those being of the "shoestring genus".

    Good to see the fat chicks are finally coming out of the woodwork.

    Ok, here's a test for you Jersey guys who aren't too young? Anyone remember Jimmie's Hot Dog stand on the Jersey side of the Pa./N.J. Border (on the other side of the Delaware Bridge). Easton, Pa/Phillipsberg, N.J.?

    I bet George Grand knows?

    Thanks for that... It was my original point!

    I particularily liked the thicker cut "steakhouse" fries we had at a place called the "Ground Round" up in the Twin Cities.

    Is there really hot dog snobery?

    Hot dogs are just one of those things, like pizza. Regions pride themselves on certain things. (chicao's the best for both, btw. hahaha)

    I really couldn't care less if someone eats a hotdog with ketchup. It's just funny cuz you'll get a lot of sideways looks the second you ask "have any ketchup" *record screech*

    Has to be of a thicker variety, but with beans. That way you can create just the right aroma for others to enjoy later.

    Has anyone had those smiley fries Buffalo Wild Wings used to have? Those were way good, if a little bit childish.

    Yeah, I mean, if I had some kinda gourmet "Chicago" hot dog it might be different, but the standard ballpark pig lips and *******s? Who cares what you put on it? It's a bunch of processed meat in tube form.

    You sure it was Jimmy's? I used to stop at a Hot Dog Johnny's (it's still there) up in that area. The line stretches almost a 1/4 mile on real nice days. They are on Rt 46 just north of Phillipsburg.

    If that's the one you're talking about then yes, I have patronized that establishment a few times. However, this Jimmy's...I know not what you speak of.

    By the time I was old enough, it was turned into HotDog Johnny's. Jimmy died, of a heart attack...

    Check out Hot Doug's specials: http://www.hotdougs.com/specials.htm

    They've had some crazy cased meats through there including rattlesnake, moose, and antelope. He makes them all the night before and when he runs out he's out. They open at 10a and by 10:30 the lines around the block. Only room for about 20 people inside, too

    Dude, Hot Dog Johnny's has been in business since 1944. Maybe Jimmy's was the one in Butzville that Johnny's took over? Johnny's started out as a shack at a gas station on the corner of Rt 46 and Rt 31 owned by John Kovalsky. They moved the stand to the larger Rt 46 site in like 1946. Been there ever since.

    Jimmie's may or may not have been around before 1944! I think it was? I'm not old enough to know and my Father is gone. But Jimmy lived to about 100 so I suspect he got started earlier--as he was among the first wave of immigrants on the Pa. side. Definitely not Johnny's, though I think I know what you're talking about. Back in the 50s....people used to drive 50, 60, 70 miles for a Jim's Dog. They weren't deep fried, but they were fried in a mixture of lard, onions, probably some salt and pepper? This guy was selling them 2 for a quarter and making thousands and thousands of dollars back then with ONE small, ONE room stand directly on the Banks of the Delaware river in Phillipsburg. The Original Jims was left to his daughter who ran it from a distance for a while when it relocated from the river's edge (after a truck backed into it and took it out) to a larger building a hundred or so feet away.

    Then after that, a couple of the workers, took the recipe and the name to a strip Mall in Easton, Pa., where until recently, it continues....at least I think it's still there? As for Buttzville...I know where that is, but I can't comment on 'any' relationship with Jimmie's. As I don't know of one.

    Well, I'll tell ya, I don't remember of any Jimmie's or Jimmy's on the Jersey side in that area. There was one called Jimmie's down in New Hope before it became hippie central. I know Hot Dog Johnny has been there for a long time. My father used to do field work in the 70's for TRW and was up that way all the time for banks, fixing ATMs. He said when he was a kid, in the boy scouts, they would stop at Hot Dog Johnny's on the way back from camping trips up in the Delaware Water Gap Park. That was in the 50's. The first time I went there, I was 5 years old and my brother was an infant. Had to be like 1982. It hasn't changed since. It's up there in God's country too. Just a beautiful area, especially with the river going right past the stand.

    When I lived up there, I was never a huge fan of the hot dog being cooked / warmed in that funky vat of water...I prefer them grilled. With that said, if you are ever in the greater ORD area, check out a chain called Portillo's. Great dogs, Italian sausage and beef, ribs to name a few. Atlanta has nothing close to a Portillos that I am aware of

    About 90 minutes north, in Merriville. I stop there every time I am up there.
