Best chili dogs in Phx?

So far, for myself, Teds in Tempe is the favorite.......they grill up foot long coneys, their chili is tasty, overall good place for a chilidog. I used to work for Tempe Elementary School District as an electrician, and I worked at the Brogan Center on Priest and University, basically....this was in 1999-2001. during that time, there was a cart guy right behind Brogan, right after the overpass on University going towards Phx....That dude rocked, for $2.50, you got a chili dog with homemade chili, a can of soda and a bag of chips. That chili dog could feed 2 people, and it was DELICIOUS.......any other joints anyone would recommend when I come into town? Thx.

  1. As a native Texan I am about to speak some blasphemy, since the chili in no way resembles what is acceptable in the Lone Star State, but I always enjoyed the chili cheese dog at the Chicago Hamburger Co. on Indian School (with mustard, nothing else).

    Never had a chili dog at Ted's, but the regular dogs are delicious. Mmmm....

    1. Hey AZSPARKY, we recently discovered the great "food truck" revolution. I am not sure if Short Leash Dogs has a specific "chili dog" but I know they have something close and their food is killer.

      Happy Chili Dog searching.

        I second Ted's excellent chili dog especially with raw onions and cheese. Short Leash is also an excellent dog -- 1/4 lb natural casing Schreiners on choice of naan bread or conventional roll -- with some very interesting combinations and toppings. however i do not believe that chili is among those combinations and toppings. i like Chicago Hamburger Co. for lots of reasons (especially the char cheddar cheeseburger served medium rare) but I do not particularly like the skinless Vienna Beef dog that they offer.

      2. If you are on ASU campus, the Dog House near the Coor Bldg has great dogs and the chili dog is awesome. they do them Boston style with grilled sandwich buns. Nice touch.

          Next time I'm down, might try that, the Dog House. Sounds good!!! Yeah, Ted's does rock though, I like Biga's review, a chili dog conassuer I see, much as I am. I go for good hamburgers also, but that's another thread, lol.....
