: Has anyone heard this phrase?
: What does it mean?

: Thanks!

This refers to a giant hotdog produced a few years ago in the Doggie Diner on Lombard St in San Francisco. It was so amazing that the judge exclaimed, "That looks great, but who are the chefs". The phrase passed into the language because the short order cook was a shy guy who refused to come forward and accept the congratulations of the judge and assembled good folks of SF.
