A hot dog is a pretty crappy piece of meat and a hot dog bun is the worst type of bread that you can have. What makes it terrible is that most hot dog vendors boil the hot dog and steam the bun instead of grilling both. The hot dog overcomes this because it is a canvas to do some awesome things.
Consider the rest of Pug's (former but similar to now) Menu:

The Fedyk Dog: - $3.25

Pug's is my daughter's favorite restaurant in Dayton. She has very sophisticated hot dog tastes for being a youngster. Her favorite hot dog has relish, ketchup, mustard, and french fries. That will be what she orders on her birthday. I can also convince her to try every hot dog on their menu (without sport peppers). The hot dog is great for the food you can put on top of it.
This restaurant has good atmosphere. It is a small shop and you order from the counter. The walls have a lot of posters about UD and their Chicago hot dog vendor. The owners were very, very nice because I think the kids and I got unlimited french fries. We'll give the atmosphere 4 out of 5 lunch hours because of the unlimited french fries.
The food is really quite spectacular. I have not tried their gyros but their hot dogs are always worth the trip. Additionally, their french fries are small, fried, and very salty. They are worth a trip of their own. Though Chicago really needs a chili cheese fries option on the menu, I give the food 4 out of 5 lunch hours.
