35 Best Hot Dogs In America. And Not One From Buffalo?

Buffalo is a hot dog loving city.  From restaurants like Ted's to Old Man River, to makers like Sahlen's and Wardynski's, people grab packages of hot dogs to take them back home when they visit, because they can't get anything even close out of town.  And with all that, The Daily Meal has not listed one Buffalo dog in their top 35!  Good for Rochester that they hit #4, but you gotta think there's at least one Buffalo dog that should be on this list.  Which Buffalo hot dog do you think belongs on here?
