Hot dogs may be considered the most American food around. But which frankfurter is the “Most-Life Changing Hot Dog” in the United States?
Last week, Esquire Magazine posed the question on its website. And according to the article, the quintessential food of our nation was invented in Brooklyn. In 1870, German immigrant Charles Feltman invented the hot dog while selling food on the Coney Island boardwalk. One day, Feltman “had the genius idea of sticking frankfurters in rolls” and boom—the hot dog was born.
To find the best of the best dogs in America is a tough question, and the contest will pit Americans against each other to win the hot dog crown. However, Esquire is looking for answers.
