One of the most beloved foods in America, that truly captures what it means to be American is the hot dog. Here in Michigan, the Coney dog has been called Michigan’s hotdog. There’s something inherently unique about the beanless chili sauce, mustard, onions, and personally, the shredded cheese, that makes the hotdog iconic in our state.

But one of the most debatable topics amongst hotdog lovers is which state has the best hotdog. There are so many different hotdogs you can make better synonymous with different states, but one above the rest has always stood out, and that is the Chicago-style dog. A typical Chicago-style dog is served on a poppyseed bun and normally contains yellow mustard, chopped white onions, green sweet pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, tomato slices or wedges, pickled peppers, and celery salt.
