Chicago Hot Dogs in San Antonio
When Chicago native Jerry Cahue moved to San Antonio, the aircraft mechanic would use his airfare discount to fly back to the Windy City once a month for hot dogs. In 2004, he opened
Jerry's Chicago Style Hot Dogs, where he assembles every dog using Chi-Town ingredients: Vienna Beef franks, poppy-seed buns, neon-green relish, celery salt, dill pickles, yellow mustard and giardiniera hot peppers, which he also puts on Italian beef sandwiches. "I once saw someone here serving an Italian beef with jalapeno peppers!" he says, shocked. "A lot of people wouldn't know the difference, but I do."
