I've had some of the nastiest-looking chili when I walk down to Pink's Hot Dogs and it's just a simple recipe of ground beef simmered in tomatoes and chipotle adobo sauce, I take it. They smother this chili onto their chili cheese fries, so much that you'll barely taste the hint of the cheese. Good stuff, but certainly not pretty.
On the other hand, I've had chili that's fancier and really well-rounded, has hints of brown sugar and cocoa in it. I don't think I've had chili with a dark ale as an ingredient, but that would sound awesome.
I drove down to Pink's a couple weeks ago. I'm in Orange County so it's kind of out of the way, but it's worth it to drive up there once in a blue moon for some good hot dogs.
Man, I'd drive to california to try a Pink's dog. I saw a special on hot dogs the other day on the travel channel and they did a whole profile of pink's.
