(CBS) — For Jason Marzullo, hot dogs are his life. Oh, and burgers, Italian beef, gyros and thin crust pizza. As owner of Hot Dog Richie’s in Palatine, his latest item he can add to his menu-the restaurant is the newest inductee into the Vienna Beef Hall of Fame.
“When they called me, I was like Hall of Fame, What? I just thought of football and thought the were going to make a bust of me holding a hot dog,” Marzullo laughed.
The key to making the perfect hot dog? He says it starts with Vienna Beef and a perfectly steamed bun but the toppings are key.
“You gotta chop the onions nice, the pickle, the onion, the tomato.”
