Ketchup should never be on a coney or a Chicago style hot dog. Mustard only.

Does the dissed substance include BBQ sauce?  Some folks consider that simply ketchup with hickory flavoring!

Out of spite, I had a hot dog with hamburg relish today. I don't dislike Chicago, and I think mustard is the best condiment out there, but I find food absolutes silly.

Ketchup only belongs on fast-food burgers and fries.  Putting it on a hot dog is absolute blasphemy.  Especially an all-beef hot dog like Vienna, Nathan's, or Hebrew National.

I could never put ketchup on a Koegel's hot dog or a Vienna Beef it doesn't seem right and I don't like it on there. A Chicago style hot dog is mustard, onion, relish, pickle spear, tomato, sport peppers and celery salt.

Dearborn Sausage in Detroit makes a good hot dog too.

Ketchup is a vegetable.  If Ronald Reagan said it, it has to be true.  :)

But, fruit, vegetable, or smoothie, KETCHUP DOES NOT BELONG ON A HOT DOG!!!!!!!  In fact, it doesn't belong on most foods, other than maybe meatloaf and McDonalds burgers & fries.

I don't find it a matter of exclusivity.  I have cooked a couple of hot dogs and put ketchup on one and mustard on the other.  It's all good.

Still, when at one of those Chicago joints that are obnoxious sticklers about no ketchup, do as the Chicagoans do, I suppose.

I'm no fan of ketchup on hot dogs, but I make exception for specialty ketchups, like Tabasco ketchup and the like.

While I love a good chicago style dog, sometimes mustard and salsa is all I need.

Well, mustard is the condiment of the gods.

Ketchup is just an emulsified manmade abomination.  :)

I do not care for ketchup as a solo condiment on anything. I don't like catsup, either.

But I also do not like all those toppings (pickle, relish, onions, poppyseed bun, etc.) that go onto a Chicago-style dog.

I will eat ketchup with mustard on a burger. On a dog, it's mustard only. I will also eat mustard only on a burger. But I do not want any of that stuff on a ham sandwich, bologna sandwich, or any other lunchmeat sandwich.

And mayo is Satan's semen. Gag.

Next thing you know, they'll be posting signs about pizza crust styles.
