Chicagoans know our city has some of the best food in the country. But now, a new list backs that up!

Chicago dominates a new list from the Daily Meal of the 50 Best Hot Dogs in America. In all, Chicago had seven hot dogs ranked in the top 25!

Fat Johnnie's, located around 72nd and Western in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood, came in at number one on the list for the "Mighty Dog."

The Mighty Dog is a hot dog and a tamale on a bun with chili and cheese. The Daily Meal cites the dog's soft steamed bun, moist tamale, fresh snap of the dog, chili, cheese, and a slice of cucumber as some of the reasons it is the best hot dog you will ever eat.
