AAA Inspector Notes
Northerners may argue and hanker for hot dogs like back home, but in these parts locals have been devouring Bill's hot dogs since 1928. Here are the facts: They serve the bright red version—they snap when you bite into them—on a steamed bun after they've been simmered in grease and topped with their house secret sauce, a special spicy yellowish white-bean chili that you can only find here. Onions and mustard are standard, or you can go without. It's stand-up only, so order quickly from the nice ladies and take your hot dogs (and get out of the way—don't you see that line forming out the door?) for a short stroll and eat by the riverfront. And bring cash, credit cards are not accepted.
