Best Hot Dog: Love Dogs Hotdogs
Here’s the deal. When you put a grocery store wienie, wrap it with bacon — crisp precisely, throw it in a warm, go-to-hell bun and say take all the toppings you’d like, plus a drink for $5 — that’s a hot dog. That’s what we grew up on and that’s what satisfies the 2 a.m. beast. Whether you’re in heels, a harness, or even pajamas — this is the fastest, easiest, most economic way to get your engine from E to F again.
Toppings include Ruffles chip crumbles, onions, tomatoes, pineapple, mushroom, black olives, relish, sauerkraut and jalapeños. Sauces include whole grain mustard, Dijon mustard, yellow mustard, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, spicy guacamole, chipotle sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise and barbecue sauce. Their drink selection includes various soft drinks and water bottles.
Carolina, Jorge and son Christian Muniz, originally from Torreón, Coahuila, opened their first cart three years ago. Now they have 12. Jorge especially recommends this combination: cheddar cheese, chipotle sauce, Ruffles, and spicy guacamole.
