1Tijuana Dog

This Southwestern favorite features a grilled, bacon-wrapped hot dog topped with fresh pico de gallo, avocado, grilled jalapeños, and cool sour cream. Inspired by Mexican street food from Sonora, the Tijuana Dog brings a spicy south-of-the-border flavor that’s popular in California and the Southwest.

2Seattle Dog

Seattle’s game-day staple mixes hot dog and bagel vibes into a late-night food cart must-have. At Billy’s, a split and grilled dog sits on a plank of cream cheese, topped with grilled cabbage and onions, and drizzled with chilled barbecue sauce. It’s a quirky mashup with a three-decade-old tradition.

3Billy Dog

Born from Chicago’s rich hot dog legacy and “dragged through the garden,” this classic Windy City style piles precisely seven toppings onto Vienna Beef hot dog in a poppyseed bun: yellow mustard, neon relish, chopped onions, tomato slices, a pickle spear, sport peppers, and celery salt.
