In case you missed it, today was National Hot Dog Day 2012. Tons of photos were uploaded online of this popular food item in America. I posted this photo of a Shake Shack Shack-cago Dog and it received many likes on both the Droolius Instagram and Facebook page. With such a good response, I figured it was worthy of a Photo of the Day here on the blog.
Interesting fact: Shake Shack’s history says it “sprouted from a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan.” I had no idea, I always assumed burgers, but Shake Shack knows hot dogs too.

Shake Shack Shack-cago Dog – A Flat-Top dog, split and griddled crisp, with Rick’s Picks Shack relish, onion, cucumber, pickle, tomato, sport pepper, celery salt and mustard.
The Shack-cago Dog is Shake Shack’s take on a classic Chicago style hot dog. It’s a good play on the Chicago style hot dog and hits all of the basic flavors with it’s toppings. Shake Shack is obviously famous for their burgers, but their “Flat-Top Dogs” are great too. With a few variations of toppings and a “Design Your Own Dog” option, it’s worth a try on any visit.
The Shack-cago Dog above was ordered at the South Beach Miami location near Lincoln Road and Shake Shack recently opened a new location in Coral Gables, FL. This popular New York eatery is expanding in various locations on the East Coast. Maybe they will even open a location in Orlando one day or in city near you. Any takers on a Shake Shack in your city? Leave a comment below and let them know where you want a Shake Shack next.
