I give you, the Big Dogs.
From left to right, here are the gory details:
Chicago Dog: Served Chicago-style with a cucumber and pickle spears, tomato wedges, green relish, mustard, white onion, sport peppers and celery salt.You might be saying to yourself, I ain't payin' no nine dollars for no hot dog, but really, when compared to the $8 paid for a 20oz. beer, a Big Dog is an absolute steal.
Wisconsin Dog?: note - this is a new one, and I'm not familiar with it, but it looks to have sauerkraut and fries on it.
Cincinnati Dog: Served with diced onions, jalapeño cheese, spicy chili and green jalapeños.
Arizona Dog: Served with nacho cheese sauce, chorizo sausage, and fresh corn tortilla strips.
Texas Dog: (TOP) Served with cheddar cheese, chopped bacon, signature barbeque sauce and crispy onion rings.
It's a whole lot of weenie. So much, a fork and knife are necessary.
Being that it's covered with your choice of unhealthy goodness, it's the most bang for you buck at Chase Field. I can't speak for the Arizona, Cincy, Wisconsin or Chicago dogs, but trust me when I say the Texas Dog is the real deal. Dare I say it shouldn't be messed with?
Drenched with both BBQ and cheese sauce and then topped with bacon (BACON!) and at least four giant onion rings, it's all I could ever ask for and more from an artery clogging casing of various meats.
If you're ever at Chase Field, be sure and make your way over to the Big Dog stand in the main concourse. It'll be the best $9 you'll ever spend at a ball game. You won't regret it.
That part comes later.
