Whether you call them Michigans, Red Hots, Coney Island or Texas dogs, hot dogs topped with a finely ground meat chili, chopped raw onions and yellow mustard are as beloved by Vermonters as if they came from the Green Mountain State. At Handy’s Lunch — a third-generation Burlington icon in its own right — they call it a Texas dog. The bun is griddled buttery-crisp on the outside, the hot dog snaps under your teeth and the chili recipe is a family secret.
