Chris has got it right! Steamed hot dog bun, griddled (usually, around here) hot dog, yellow "ball park" mustard, chilli sauce, coleslaw, and finely chopped onions, that makes it "all the way." You can order "no onions" if you want, but why would anyone want to do that?
For those of us that want to upscale our Southern style dog, you could make your own chilli sauce and slaw. On my homemade dog, I put the onions on top of the mustard, then add the chilli, then the slaw on top. This order contains the onions and prevents onion spillage, which would ruin the sum of the parts.....IMO. Some of us take our hot dog construction very seriously! ;o)
