"4 1/2 out of 5 bottles of ketchup"

That's the rating that a student of 826 Chicago gave to Hot Doug's on a recent review visit. Several students had to wait in line, in the rain, choose an encased meat product with duck fat fries and write a review about it. And these reviews are quite possibly some of the best and most entertaining food reviews you've read all year. Overall, the reviewers loved Hot Doug's and they loved The Doug Factor.

Thank you for catching that. :) Even among stalwart hot-dog lovers, ketchup is acceptable for children to put on hot dogs. I give the kid credit for using that as a rating system.

I you like that, then I'd urge you to check out the book 'A Sunday Afternoon Hotdog Meal' from the 826 Chicago kids. It's a totally precious read. http://www.amazon.com/Sunday-Afternoon-Hotdog-Meal-featuring/dp/0979007399
