Tom Lohr has eaten a hot dog at all 30 MLB ballparks and is the author of "Gone to the Dogs: In Search of the Best Ballpark Hot Dog."

Who doesn't love Italian food? And what person didn't dig spaghettiOs when they were a kid. Now you can satisfy that Italian craving and relive your childhood with the Hill dog. It gets its name from The Hill, a district in St. Louis with a strong Italian heritage. Yogi Berra grew up in The Hill, and we are certain he would approve of this awesome dog. It's quick, easy, and a crowd-pleaser.

      I'm deeply sad this place closed but Hot Dougs in Chicago was amazing! They had all sorts of interesting options and you make me think of them when you post hot dog articles, lol :( I'll eat this one but I prefer charred with grilled onion.
