Best Hot Dog 

Happy Dog

Whether offering a stage for rock bands, polka players or classical musicians, one thing has remained constant for this Gordon Square mainstay: hot dogs piled high with accoutrements. Just $5 buys a diner a frank, available in both the meaty and vegan variety, and an unlimited selection from a toppings list more than 50 strong. Sure, traditional Ballpark Mustard goes just fine, but leave plenty of room for quirky selections like Fruit Loops, SpaghettiOs and Andy Capp's Hot Fries. And don't forget the fried egg, a Happy Dog tradition.
