THE MAC-AND-CHEESE DOG: The hot dog is a staple item at any baseball game. So, how do you improve it? You add macaroni and cheese with bacon bits, of course. The green onions are just for color, obviously. 

THE CHICAGO BURGER: As it was described to us, "everything you'll find on a 'Chicago Dog', on a burger." The Chicago Burger features relish, white onions, pickled sport peppers and a Dill pickle spear.

THE PIZZA DOG: A majority of people cannot get enough pizza. When it comes to Chicagoans, there is a constant debate about who has the best pizza, thin-crust, deep-dish or otherwise. In February, Travel & Leisure's readers named Phoenix as the best pizza town in the United States. In 2016, Giordano's and Lou Malnati's opened pizzerias in Arizona. Gino's East's location opened in Arcadia in March. What's in the pizza dog? Italian sausage, Provolone cheese, house-made marinara sauce and pepperoni served on a homemade baguette.
