Boomer's Sweet Home Chicago
Was looking for a place with good Chicago dogs AND friendly staff; decided to make the trip (Queen Creek to Glendale) and was not disappointed. The jumbo ChiDog was great, along with a generous side of fried zucchini. Though I arrived shortly before closing, the owner and staff were very welcoming. Will definitely stop in again.
What does a chili dog have to do with a Chicago hotdog? We do not cover up the greatness of a Chicago dog with chili. Chicago hotdog--boiled or steamed (sometimes grilled-a chardog). Mustard, neon green relish, raw chopped onion, tomato, "sport" peppers, celery salt and pickle inside or on the side. A steamed poppy seed bun--usually from Rosen's.
No ketchup! No chili! Why cover up its gloriousness with red slop?
Is this place a Jekyll and Hyde? We live nearby and had seen it recommended awhile back, and went for lunch one Saturday. The hot dogs were not especially great, and I think I had a brat which wasn't either. My husband had a side of limp french fries. I had the fried zucchini, which was straight out of the freezer to the fryer, rather limp and greasy. What are we missing? I have to admit, though, the staff was indeed friendly.
