It’s Memorial Day weekend, so pull out the grill and cook up some of your summer favorites! One entree that’s guaranteed to make an appearance at your cookout? The hot dog!

But depending on where you are in the U.S., the “normal” version of a hot dog may be styled differently than the standard ketchup and mustard. Almost every region has a local variation of the American classic. Check out the variety!

New York
One of the most quintessential street foods, New Yorkers love their hot dogs. The Big Apple whips them up in a variety of ways, but the classic comes with steamed onions in a tomato-based sauce and mustard.

Chicago
Windy city residents like their hot dogs dressed to the nines: yellow mustard, relish, chopped onion, tomato slices, spicy pickled green peppers, a pickle spear with a dash of celery salt—all huddled up in a poppy-seed bun.

Detroit
Named after the place where hot dogs first arrived on the scene, Michigan’s “Coney Island” is smothered in all-beef chili, raw white onion, yellow mustard and shredded cheddar cheese.

Ohio
Known as the “Cheese Coney,” Cincinnati chili is served on a Coney-style hot dog and topped with cheese.

Kansas City
This hot dog celebrates the Rueben sandwich—topped with melted Swiss cheese and sauerkraut and is packed into a sesame-seed bun.

Atlanta
Georgia peaches order their hot dogs “dragged through the garden,” or slipped into a top-sliced bun and covered with coleslaw.

Houston
Texans like to spice their hot dogs up with chili, cheese and jalapenos!

Seattle
In this west coast city, hot dogs are served with cream cheese and grilled onions on a toasted bun.

How will you be styling your hot dog this holiday weekend? Your location will make all the difference.
