The Best Hot Dog in Evergreen Park: You Decide

Help us decide who makes the best hot dog in the Evergreen Park area.

It’s time for another Chowdown Showdown, our new weekly feature that will not only give you great ideas on where to eat, but will allow you to tell everyone why your favorite restaurant is the best. 

The Chowdown Showdown pits Palos, Evergreen Park and Oak Lawn restaurants against each other to decide who makes a particular dish best. Before the competition starts, we need your ideas on who our Evergreen Park representative should be.

This week's showdown features that all-American favorite—the hot dog! I want you to tell me who makes the best weiner in town--Wojo's, Snackville Junction, Sam's Club, the pretzel dog from Auntie Anne's Soft Pretzels, J.J. Sausage Maxwell Street, Souzy's, somewhere else? The winner then will go on to face the best of Palos and Oak Lawn.

Pappy's is the best! a good steamed dog on a soft bun, just the right amount of toppings.

Pappy's gets a lot of endorsements from readers! Thanks for weighing in Debbie.

Here's another reader's endorsement for Pappys. Just a side note, Pappys is spelled without an apostrophe. The mis-spelling drives the owner crazy.

Thank you ladies! We wanted to give other businesses a fair try, since we tried Gyros at Pappys in our last Chowdown Showdown, so we asked again on Facebook. We'll be testing out Souzy's this week, since they had more votes and 'likes,' as of 2 p.m. today. Make sure you tune in to see who won between us, Palos Patch and Oak Lawn Patch. Thanks!
