I meant that banana peppers aren't a substitute that is even close. They're missing a serious heat factor, and the taste is just not the same. Peppers on a chicago dog are at the heat level that makes them even hotter coming out than going in. Gross yes, but anyone that braves the peppers knows it's true.

My experience from living in Chicago all of my life, is that regardless of the toppings they are replicating to make the "Chicago dog", if its not an all beef dog I'm not going anywhere near it!

All this is on top of the dog not around and under it.
The closest to a Chicago dog that I have had outside of Chicago area is Sonic's Chicago dog and that still needs improvement.
No way is Casey's even close to a Chicago dog.

And this is similar to can you get a genuine Philly Cheesesteak at WDW?


Or a genuine Md. crabcake?

Again, no.

You get the feeling that they could do all 3 if they REALLY wanted to--but obviously for some reason they don't.
