This is one of the best coney sauces I've ever tried! My whole family loved this recipe! I omitted the celery. Instead I topped the coney sauce with shredded sharp cheese and ladled it over hot dogs.

As delicious as what the root beer stands has to offer. I did make a some changes in the recipe and was surprisingly good. One change I made was due to not having any lemon juice so I substituted white vinegar instead. The other change was actually a mistake and it was when I doubled the recipe and I doubled the 15 oz can of tomato sauce instead of the doubling the recipe's amount of an 8 oz can. Fortunately, the sauce cooked down to a nice consistency and thickened after being refrigerated. Will be making this again in the future and with my serendipitous mistake.

Very good! Made a quadruple batch for a meeting.....one batch doesn't make much at all!

I thought this tasted really good on my hot dog. I will keep this recipe and make it again.

I made this for a baked potato buffet fundraiser, they licked the pot clean and asked for more! Just enough spice to keep everyone happy.

I wondered about the celery, but this was the best hot dog chili I've eaten.
