In Grant's later years he moved to Galena, Illinois... which is still pretty far from Chicago though.

"No ketchup" is pretty much the defining feature of a Chicago-style hot dog.

When I was in Chicago I learned about this. During some war they couldn't use one of the ingredients in ketchup, so they didn't put it on their hot dogs. Most places don't even have ketchup for visitors to use.

Moved here two years ago, and I got everything except the aquarium (which I am fairly certain I have only ever heard as simply "the aquarium"). In any case, I feel like I can start to call myself a Chicagoan. I still put ketchup on my hot dogs though...

Not really. There are many "diehard" hot dog fans who will criticize you. But plenty of local people use ketchup too. //born and raised in Chicagoland

when people get all snooty about the proper way to eat your food or drink your beer or stir your tea or whatever I can't stand that. I understand regional traditions can be fun sometimes but are you actually going to get upset by what I want to put in my mouth or how I go about getting it there? then get a life.

I credit radio station WLS with many of the answers I knew. When I was a kid in the 1960s it was the only Top 40 music station we could get after 10 pm in the Mid-south, and I fell asleep most nights listening to it. Art Roberts was great.

For someone who has lived my entire life just a couple miles outside of Chicago, I probably should have done better than 28/35. But then I don't eat hot dogs and like half the ones I missed are toppings for that. Would love to see a question about deep dish pizza on here - if we're going to be represented by a food then how about a GOOD one?
