Query: What have been the most effective canine in Peoria through the years? Hunter’s Sizzling Canines was at all times the most effective place, for my part. I believe it was on Perry. My aunt, who lived in Indiana, would purchase their chili canine toppings in bulk so her household might take pleasure in after visiting city. Others: Velvet Freeze, in fact, “Dwelling of the Marvel Canine.” A number of places round right here at one level, together with North Prospect within the Heights, Forrest Hill and Gale, and East Peoria. There is a restaurant now in East Peoria referred to as The Unique Wonderdog. I have never tried it, however my mother-in-law loves it. Duffy’s, initially on Sheridan, then on Prospect, bought its Chicago Canine. There have been extra toppings than there was a sizzling canine. Most likely others that I am not pondering of. — mike miller
