Five fancy-pants dogs and stands, compared

Makes own sausages? No.
Gestalt With a pun-filled menu and pieced-together décor, Chicago’s Dog House has a sort of cultivated quirk.
Best Item Alligator sausage with Asian chili sauce and caramelized onions ($7.50). With a good sausage and supporting cast of toppings, this dish hits notes of sweet, smoky, spicy, and salty, but it’s grilled so long that it develops a woody crust of char. B
Worst Item French Poodle: Red Hot Chicago frank with Grey Poupon, pear, and Brie ($2.99). The toppings would be great on a crêpe, but the wiener is from a different universe. D
Yeah, But . . . Why do so many of the dogs have cilantro, cayenne, and caramelized onions?
