The BBQ Dog from Dave's Doghouse

With shaded tables scattered about outside and silly phrases written with marker on newspaper decorating the inside, Dave's Doghouse is a counter-service hot dog stand, conveniently located on ASU's Tempe campus. The dogs are distinctly Boston-style, with custom-ordered, hand-stuffed, all-beef links imported straight from Beantown and the buttered and grilled New England style-bun (the sides look and taste like the outside of a perfect toasted cheese sandwich). Dave's offers only a few dogs: The Beantown comes with beans, the Mac and Cheese dog is topped with mac and cheese and bacon, and the Reuben has the fixins of a Reuben sandwich: Swiss cheese, Thousand Island dressing, and sauerkraut. The dog I can not get enough of is the BBQ Dog. It started with that toasted buttered bun, and then that delicious secret-recipe handmade all-beef hot dog, a stripe of tangy BBQ sauce, and a cool coleslaw topping. Yum. We will take this lunch anytime we are on campus. Michelle Martinez

Don't go looking for the Nogales Hot Dogs restaurant. It doesn't exist. No, Nogales Hot Dogs in all their bacon-wrapped, mayo-slathered, bejeweled-by-diced tomato glory come straight from a truck surrounded by a makeshift, outdoor dining room of plastic tables and folding chairs that doesn't open 'til 6 in the evening. These dogs are so good that they caught the attention of Bizarre Foods' Andrew Zimmern when he came through the Valley. But you need not make afternoon snacks of dung beetles and pig ears to appreciate this decadent dog. Each one comes equipped with bacon armor, topped with beans, mayo, tomatoes, and onions. Add some crumbly queso fresco and guacamole on top, then drown the tasty bastard in a wave of hot sauce. The cleanliness of your shirt will be compromised, but doggone it, you won't care a bit.

The #4 at Two Hippies Beach House

Phoenix may not have a sandy beach (at least not a real one), but it does have a cool surfside beach shack in Two Hippies. The menu features a handful of tasty wieners including Sonoran and chili dogs, but my favorite is the #4, a Greek-inspired version slapped on a tasty egg bun. The dog itself is a plump and pink jumbo beef frank that's boiled rather than grilled, making for less char and more focus on the natural juiciness of the meat. Pungent feta and bacon provide a salty base, while chopped tomato adds an acidic sweetness that lightens up the topping combo. Pesto mayo boosts the creamy texture and brings the whole dish together for a Mediterranean-style dog that goes down easy. Wynter Holden
