Good hot dog in OC?
Where can a guy get a good hot dog in Orange County? Something akin to Pinks of LA, only within driving distance.
And by good hot dog, I mean good ingredients, crazy toppings etc.
PCH dogs in Orange. Great chili dogs, you can even get chicago or new york dogs. In my opinion the chili and dogs here are both better than Pink's.
You can also hit up Mustards in Los Alamitos for Vienna Beef Chi-town dogs.
There's also Jerry's Dogs in Santa Ana for grilled dogs with a wide variety of toppings and fixin's. They also carry sausages like bratwurst and chicken sausages, etc.
They have the Coney, which is the all-white veal Hoffman's of Syracuse
They also have the all-beef Frank, by Hoffman's of Syracuse.
I've had the mixed double, which has one Coney and one Frank in one large bun. Excellent.
They also have the red or white hots, which is the Zwiegel from Rochester. Haven't tried this yet.
They aslo have the City Dog, which is a Sabrett's. Haven'tr tried this yet.
Their 1/4 lb'er is the beef Hoffman's frank. This was very good.
I'm not typically a hot dog guy, as I tend to favor the bratwursts, Italian and Polish sausages. But everytime I've ordered a hot dog at Carm's Coneys, it's been excellent.
They do have chili, and it can be added on, or ordered separately in a cup or bowl. I haven't tried it yet.
I like the hot dogs at Carm's Coneys much more than at Jerry's Dogs. At Jerry's, I prefer the Polish sausage, the Jalapeno Hot Link, and the other sausages.
Are there any bacon-wrapped "dirty" dogs in OC like what you'd find in LA? I think I once saw them at the farmer's market across from UCI a few years ago, but they weren't there the last few times I visited.
