This seems to be a pretty controversial topic. What say you?

I'm very anti-catsup on hot dogs. On a regular hot dog, I'll add mustard, relish, and chopped onion if available.

Around here, you can get physically hurt for even asking for ketchup.

Yep. Chicago dogs are serious business. And delicious as hell.

I have used mustard and ketchup (catsup) but usually go with just mustard.  If I get a hot dog out, like at Senate in Cinci......no ketchup.

Not for me, but don't quite understand the "purists" who don't think others should.

Ketchup/mustard or sauce (meat similar to like a sloppy joe)

I don't really do ketchup on anything except maybe the more bland forms of restaurant fries. Mustard, onion and maybe a bit of hot sauce for me.

Southern Ohio rules:

West of Rt 23....it’s a coney, East of Rt 23....it’s a hot dog w/sauce

IMHO: Packo's makes the best "sauce"

I’ve never had a better sauce/ cheese/ onion dog in my life than the Hot Dog Shoppe in Warren, Oh

Ketchup and mustard. If it has coney/chili sauce on it, then it gets cheese, onions and hot sauce.

Absolutely. I much prefer a coney with cheese or something similar. But if those aren’t options (like at a family cookout), ketchup makes its way on along with the other condiments.

Ketchup for me.

I think Heinz or someone did a blind taste test in Chicago a few years ago, calling their ketchup "special dog sauce" and people loved it.  Although I'm not sure how people wouldn't know it's ketchup.

The snobbery about ketchup on a hot dog - something that is, technically, about the worst processed meat on the planet - has always amused me.  But I guess there is a scientific argument that a Chicago-style dog hits a similar, more mild, taste profile as ketchup but with wholly natural ingredients.
