TASTE TEST: H. Dog rocks dollar dogs on Wednesdays

Schererville's H. Dog sells Chicago dogs for 99 cents on Wednesdays.

One of the best deals in Northwest Indiana is dollar dog Wednesdays at H. Dog in Schererville.

Every Wednesday, the fast-food restaurant at 36 U.S. 41 in the Town Square Shopping Center sells Chicago dogs for just 99 cents all day Wednesday and from 3 to 4 p.m. every day. H. Dog calls the promotion Weenie Wednesday.

The steaming hot dogs come "dragged through the garden," with chopped onions, bright green relish, tomato slices, sport peppers, a dill pickle spear, yellow mustard and celery salt. And of course, no ketchup, never ketchup, get that measly tomato paste out of here.

Intended to draw a family crowd to the neighborhood restaurant, the dollar dogs are of course pure Vienna beef tucked into a steamed poppy seed bun topped with fresh, crisp veggies. It's a timeless Chicago classic. Though the price is cheap, H. Dog doesn't skimp on the quality of ingredients, so it's a great place to stop by for lunch on Wednesdays.
