Best stimmés/steamies?

Did a search on this board but did not come up with a definitive thread. So, presently (no resting on past laurels), who makes the best steamed dog in town. For that matter who makes the best toasties and michigans?

  1. Normand Patate on Verdun Avenue in Verdun get my vote. They use Schnieder weiners which to me are the best you can get at a cassecroute.

      I love Orange Julep hot dogs, and fries and of course the Julep. My favourites used to be from Pic Nic when they made Shopsie's - man were those good dogs. I also grew up one street away from Mr. Hot Dog, and they weren't bad either - but that could just be a sweet childhood connotation.

      1. Victoire on Beaver Hill near Square Vic metro. On the East (right) side as you are walking up the hill. Not opened on weekends. Not even sure if they are opened in the evenings. Make sure to get some fries with that.
        PS: There is usually a 30-person line up.

        1. There will likely be as many answers as there are hot doggeries. OJ on Decarie is definitely right up there, as are all the others mentioned so far. I'd also add the one on St. Laurent next to Baggio Cycles up near Mozart. I forget the name.

          Of course the best ever the old Forum.

          1. Chien Chaud Victoire on Beaver Hall Hill gets my vote too, it's just below la Gauchetiere.
