After painting some pretty fancy food, I started craving one of my Chicago favorites. Everybody's got a favorite red hot joint & it's usually the one they went to as a kid. I still miss Sammy's Upsidedown when it was on Division between LaSalle & Clark. I was raised in S. California where the the hot dog is not treated with the appropriate reverence, so I never really tasted a good one till I over here in 1973.
And for those who insist on ketchup, Wisconsin's right next door.
