Hot Dog Hall of Fame, located across from Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food on the second level of CityWalk, will feature iconic hot dog creations from some of our nation's most famous ball parks, including the loaded Chicago dog and Boston brat.  Universal exclusively partnered with Steven Schussler, the global culinary concept creator behind the popular Rain Forest Cafe, to bring his Hot Dog Hall of Fame concept to CityWalk.
