TORONTO’S TOP TAKEOUT: Sucking on chili dogs at the back of Fancy Franks…

Today is Opening Day for the Blue Jays…although they were in New York today, and will play their “home games” in Florida until at least the end of May. Since it looks like we won’t be heading down to the ballpark anytime soon, we’re bringing the ballpark home with some real-deal Coney Island chili dogs from Francy Franks.

Suck on THIS chili dog, John Bro-gar Bro-llencamp! We’ve got a 100% beef wiener topped with meaty chili, chopped onions and mustard in a warm ‘n toasty bun. And you KNOW I didn’t eat just one, bro!!!

But that’s not all, folks! We’re kicking things up another notch with some chili poutine! This dish is like Chili Cheese Fries Gone Wild — with real-deal cheese curds to top it off. There is even some gravy on here, but it mostly either absorbed into the meat or settled at the bottom. And hey, this dish actually held up OK in delivery!

Now, we won’t have the CN Tower in the background on Opening Day, so instead we’re drinking a beer with the CN Tower on it — Divercity Helles Lager from Lost Craft. And hey, the Jays actually came back in extra innings to beat the Yanks!!!! Can I get a Helles Yeah, bro????

What do you get when you cross Buffalo wings with a hot dog?

OK, so check it out. This one time, I was hanging out at Let’s Be Frank, this funky juke joint in Chinatown. I told a buddy to meet me there, but he actually went to Fancy Franks instead. But hey, it was an honest mistake—you can never have too many gourmet hot dog joints in one neighbourhood, is what I say.

Speaking of neighbourhoods, this well-dressed wiener is taking me straight down to Allentown. They call this one Frankie Goes to Buffalo, and I gotta say, it just screams “Relax” son!

OK, let’s break it down. You’ve got a lotta crunch from the panko-breaded, deep-fried wiener; a nice, buttery kick from the Buffalo sauce, balanced out by a creamy Blue cheese dressing—and some carrot sticks and celery, y’know, for that one serving of veggies. Man, I could go all Kobayashi on six or seven of these…I’d just need some extra napkins!
