    Do they serve hot dogs with tomatoes where you live?

    Everything includes mustard, relish, celery salt, freshly chopped onions, sliced red ripe tomatoes, kosher pickle, and sport peppers piled onto a steamed poppy seed bun.

    I like my dogs with chile. (They're called chili dogs when served that way.) Or just mustard.

    Number three should not have a comma.

    Number 3 is grammatical but makes no sense.

    Re: Can I get a hot dog, which no tomatoes please?

    To be grammatical, they need a comma before 'please'.

    Only 1 and 2 (with commas) are acceptable to me.

    You'll hear American English-speakers say 'Can I get ...' when ordering something from a vendor, or in this case, your mom, who probably likes to put tomatoes on hot dogs for you, as they're not a traditional ingredient.

    In British English, we're more likely to ask 'Can I have ...'

    Hot dogs usually come with the option of tomato ketchup (I think that might be "catsup" in AmE) but I've never seen one offered with tomatoes.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    We use both spellings for the thick, red tomato sauce. I'm pretty sure ketchup is a lot more common.
