(C’mon…all the parents now…”We got ears, it’s time for cheers”.)

Okay, sorry for getting the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse “Hot Dog Song” stuck in your head.

¬†That is the Valentino Rossi…it’s an Italian links, Scala Sunday Gravy, romano, provolone cheese, & caramelized onions & peppers…and it’s AWESOME!

Where’d I get it?

Hot Shots – Craft Hotdoggery.

Yesterday, Mr. Allen & I had a lunch meeting scheduled, and as we were walking down Locust…we saw the sign…less than a block away from the station! We went in…and it was Hot Dog Heaven. It took us about 5 minutes to decide what we wanted…it’s a menu of maybe 12-14 hot dogs, but they all looked so tempting, that it took awhile to come to a decision.

As a native of the Chicago area, I crave hot dogs…and now I have found the place that will fill that void.

If I remember right, Mr. Allen went with the James Dean…I can’t remember everything on it…but this is it.

Oh, thoese are seasoned tots…with spicy mayo dipping sauce…and those are fantastic. I was hoping Mr. Allen was going to get up to get a refill of Coke, so I could snag a few more (I am not above that by any means).

I definitely have a new lunch destination…if anyone asks “Where should we get lunch?” I will quickly answer…Hot Shots…and I will enjoy a tasty dog. Oh, and when my lunch companion isn’t looking, I will steal his tots…no doubt about that.

Holy cow, I’m hungry right now just thinking about it…I don’t think I saw one on the menu…but there’d be nothign wrong with a breakfast hot dog, ha!

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
