I love a good chilidog.....I live in South OC (San Clemente), and I don't mind driving, so anyone know of a great place to get a chilidog n fries? Only place Ive been to is Der Weinerschnitzel. And you know, they're good in a pinch, but I'm looking for GREAT!!.....Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
Andrew in OC

Portillo's, two blocks east of Knott's Berry Farm has very good Chicago style chili dogs and great Italian beef sandwiches.
Also closer to you The Original Tommy's has a location in Lake Forest at
24310 Swartz Dr.
The Hat also has a location in Lake Forest at
23641 Rockfield Blvd. and you can try their Pastrami Chili Cheese Fries.
Portillo's Hot Dogs

Up here in the LA area I find Carney's to be one of the best due to a couple of factors. Superior chili and a dog that snaps so hard you jump back to avoid its jaws (g). Another place that is a must try is The Infield in Sherman Oaks. They have a broad assortment of high end dog brands (including Sabrett's, Hebrew National and Vienna Beef - among others) and know their stuff. I'm someone who enjoys steamed over grilled. So if you like grilled best you can take my recommendations with a grain of mustard.
