Although there are so many different variations of Chili Dogs, I always find myself going back and enjoying the traditional old-fashioned style...it's just better in my opinion, and if it's not broken why fix it right? Ok, so I have enjoyed a few others as well and they were pretty delightful, but nothing will ever compare to the way they were made back in the day and still are today.
