Product: Pickle Dog

Why you might want it: You don't particularly like the taste of most veggie dogs. You loooooooove pickles.
How it works: ChiDogO's, the brand new Chicago-style hot dog counter from Bob Hisaoka, describes its pickle dog as a fried pickle spear that "fills the bun," plus all the toppings. Those toppings include mustard, relish, chopped onions, tomatoes, peppers, and, yes, another, non-fried pickle spear. This dog is certifiably pickle-plus.
The bottom line: Not for pickle skeptics! All you're gonna taste is pickle (the frying doesn't really seem to change anything about the taste, that I could tell). But if that sounds like it's right up your alley, a quick snack at 14th & U for under $3 is a decent deal.
