Hot Dog Heaven, in Henderson, needs a new sign. Or at least a sign painter.
But what it doesn’t need to improve is its classic Chicago dog on a soft, squishy bun with hot peppers, pickles and radioactive relish.
Its bigger, thicker Polish cousin — with nicely grilled, thick onions — was pretty good too, but we found ourselves wolfing down the all-beef, Vienna skinnier dog first.
It was quite an al fresco lunch on quite an al fresco day in Henderson (72 degrees, in January?), and it made us think of Al Capone, Alvin Karpus, Allan Richman, Al Gore and Al DeRogatis, while this song played in our head. Go figure.
And GO BEARS!
Our two-dog lunch came to $7.17 and we left a $1.78 tip.
