I really hate hot dogs, unless they're from a Coney Island. Then you know it's not just lips and assholes, but [i]also[i] cow hearts. I'm saying that unironically. I'll let interested readers Google that.

That's, uh, unusual. In fact, ham is kind of unusual in Mexico. The only place I can remember having it is a restaurant in Valenciana, Guanajuato.

On the other hand, many years ago, there was a restaurant in Manzanillo, Colima, Mexico that was named "Hamburguesas sin Microbios" (hamburgers without microbes) that made pretty damned good hamburgers. I didn't get sick, so I guess their name was accurate.

I'm always conscientious when I review pizza places on Yelp, because not every place serves perfect, Detroit-style pizza. Therefore I always point out, I'm not a fan of this style of pizza, and it's awesome anyway (Chicago, but not Chicago-style), or I'm not a fan of this pizza, and it sucks (Chicago style), or I'm not of fan of this pizza, and I don't see the big deal (NYC), or I'm not a fan of this style but it was freaking awesome (local brick oven place), and try to detail the experience will have aside from the pizza.

The Chicago style at Pizza Uno sucks, plain and simple. It was a fantastic restaurant, though, and as long as you order something besides Chicago style, you'll have a great time.
If you want to discuss cannibalizing black people, probably the best place for that is the BBQ Pit.
