At last count, Zack's menu offered 15--count 'em, 15--different kinds of hot dog, and we feel compelled to break it down for you in case you were possibly thinking about how many days in a row you could eat a hot dog: Classic (aka "snap" hot dog with natural casing), Chicago-Style Classic, Baltimore Dog, Chili Dog, Southern Style Classic, New York Classic, Southwestern Chipotle Dog, Jumbo Polish Dog, Italian, Footlong Dog, Super Footlong Dog, Pulled Pork BBQ Dog, Corn Dog, Griller Dog, and Reuben Dog, which is a hot dog topped with corned beef, sauerkraut, melted Swiss cheese, and Thousand Island dressing. If that's not enough, Zack's provides a fixings bar that features, among other things, salsa, olives, jalapeño and banana peppers, pickles, more than one kind of mustard, and real bacon bits. Yeah, you can buy a hot dog with corned beef and sauerkraut and cheese on it and then walk over to the fixings bar and cover it with bacon bits. Or you could buy a Chicago-style hot dog stuffed into a bun with tomato, onion, tangy peppers, neon green relish, and a pickle wedge and cover that with bacon bits. We'll take one of each for starters, urp!
