Ahhh, Chicago style hot dogs. What could be better? Most of my friends in LA are native Chicagoans, including EVERY LAQP except myself, and it seems they are always on the search for the perfect hot dog. Of course, there’s Portillo’s and it’s wonderful. But it’s also all the way in Buena Park. So if you’re looking for something more in the LA area, I suggest to you The Slaw Dogs in Pasadena.
BlackboardEats had a 30% off lunch or dinner deal going on and Andy and Jess ate there and thought it was delicious. Andy declared it the closest thing to a Chicago style dog he had found thus far. In all actuality, I didn’t even need convincing after scoping out the MENU.
We got the mac and cheese dog, the special pineapple express, sweet potato fries, and of course some tots. And they had our FAVORITE Bundaberg ginger beer! SOLD.
If you’re on that hunt for the perfect hot dog, check out The Slaw Dogs. And if you’re dissappointed… Well, you may want to get your head checked out because you’re plain crazy! Just kidding… But seriously.
