"The world's largest hot dog chain," Weinerschnitzel, is bringing the Chicago-style hot dog to the West. Their press release lists that as "'sensory taste explosion' featuring a seven inch all-beef hot dog topped with mustard, emerald green relish, chopped onions, tomato, a pickle spear and sport peppers. The bun is sprinkled with poppy seeds." The chain's marketing director notes that the bright-green relish is a trademark of our home-town dog; someone should tell him that the relish most of stands here these days is dye free.
