Game Day’s owners turned what was once a dank, depressing former Taco Bell slopping enchiritos into a mini-sports shrine, complete with pictures of the greats (Ali, Jordan, Ruth), pennants, license plates—all that’s missing is a kegger, and you’d have the type of sports pub they have in Ann Arbor or Chapel Hill. There’s no liquor license, alas, but more than making up for this is hot dogs taken from the many American regional traditions of the foodstuff—and great takes, too, not Chicago dogs deemed as such because there’s a pathetic sprinkling of celery salt. Here, those dogs have the requisite green relish, the sport peppers, the overall complexity of a great Chicago dog’s tang and spice.
