Monday On A Mission:) Looking For a Chicago Hot Dog in McKinney and My Montage Monday

25 Oct

“Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it” ― Gautama Buddha


Another fun afternoon with Linda, joined by Julie, on a very important mission. Linda and I are both from Chicago, and while we were watching the Cubs game at Dempsey’s Saturday night, she suggested that we go on a mission or quest to find the best Chicago hot dog in McKinney, TX. A few places boasted Chicago dogs, but they were either closed on Monday or not open until dinner. 

We thought we’d try One & Only Burger on 380 and Hwy 5. They have burgers and hot dogs made to order. The thing about Chicago dogs is there are certain things you need. Poppy seed bun, all beef dog, mustard, tomato wedge, fluorescent relish, diced onion (I like grilled) a long kosher pickle slice, sport peppers, and a generous sprinkle of celery salt.

Chrys and Gabriele, owners of the place tried to accommodate us, but didn’t have the sport peppers or celery salt. The rest came pretty close. And, oh man, their fries are amazing.

This is what they should look like.

Tomorrow night, we will see how good the Chicago dogs are at Dempsey’s when we go watch the Cubs win. Linda said she would bring the sport peppers and I’ve already got the celery salt in my purse. GO CUBS!!!

This was only DAY 1. We will keep taste testing and reporting until we find the best Chicago dog. Wish us luck. We’re on a MISSION!

Montage Monday.
