Will Chicago ever run out of stands to visit? I doubt it. Just when I think I've uncovered every walkup window in the metropolitan area, I come across an unsuspecting option hidden in plain sight. Check out the most popular stands of 2012.
'mustard's last stand' on Serious Eats
Mustard's Last Stand is one of a number of hot dog joints in Chicago with a questionably funny name. Though this time it also functions as a fair warning. Sure, it proudly announces our city's love of the yellow condiment over its more famous tomato-based cousin. But more importantly, this is also your last chance to fill up before catching a football or basketball game at Northwestern University in Evanston.
Though the Natural Casing Hot Dog Map showed where you can get a great hot dog in the city limits, I did have to leave some of my favorite stands off the list, and it didn't exactly seem fair. Now it's time to examine the hot dog offerings in the suburbs.
