The Great Hot Dog Mystery

Michigan is crazy for hot dogs.

I swear there's a Coney something or other on every block. In Austin, you get hot dogs from Sonic. Hardly anyone else even sells them. Almost no one even mentions them.

In the Detroit suburbs, though, they're everywhere.

So here's my question: if you took a map of the United States, and marked Texas "NO HOT DOGS" (comparatively) and Michigan "ALL HOT DOGS", how does that interest vary in the region between Texas and Michigan?

In other words, is there a Mason-Dixon line for hot dogs, and if so, where is it located?
