Who's got the best hot dog anywhere? No matter the region of America, that's a tough question to answer. What is simply a sausage on a bun, can evolve into a local culinary legend. Guess what? Butte, Montana is home to the 'Best Hot Dog in Montana'.

Mr. Hot Dogs in Butte was named "The Best Hot Dog in Montana" by Food & Wine Magazine which is no small feat in a state that prides itself on some of the best beef in the world. Never been there? As of this writing, neither have I so perhaps we should plan a quick lunch road trip. (BTW, this place is a very humble lookin' joint and I'm dying to try it.)

Mr. Hot Dogs' Facebook page gives this quick, to-the-point description of what you can expect there: "Home of the Original Chicago Style Dog on a Poppy Seed Bun. 100% Montana Beef and Buffalo Hotdogs!" (1806 Cobban St Butte, MT)
