Both the chili dog and the loose meat sandwich have historic significance in America. Each one have become part of the American diet and both as they are known today were invented in the United States.
This new series will focus on whether or not the two and good to eat when paired together. It will simply answer the question with yes or no.
Each one tested included one of each at establishments that serve both loose meat sandwiches and hot dogs/chili dogs. Only establishments that serve both will be taste tested. The testing will not be conducted until both have been tasted tested individually as outlined in each of the independent series' Corner Bar Approved? and Search for the Best Loose Meat. The chili dogs/hot dogs that will be further tested with a loose meat sandwich will only include those that are Corner Bar Approved and only the loose meat sandwiches that score 80 points or greater. The establishments who serve both will need to meet both requirements of being Corner Bar Approved and scoring 80 points or greater for their food to be taste tested together which will determine if they are good when paired together.
This currently leaves out Riverside Dairy Queen, Bob Roe's Point After and Hamilton Blvd Coney Island as they all scored below 80 points on their loose meat sandwiches.
