OC Weekly Archives

Every day is a holiday for some sort of food these days, and while some remain skeptical of such excessive celebration, you have to admit: it can be fun. Burgers? Fries? Baked Beans? Time to party (or just read articles like this one...) If you didn't know, today is National Hot Dog Day, and--before you roll your eyes at me--get this: some places are offering some cool specials today. We included them below.

10. Hula Dog (Newport Beach)

Hula Dog items are as interesting in taste as they are architecturally: buns are impaled on a ramrod straight steel pike and heated from the inside which leaves a hole for the dog. Buns here come in flavors like FBI Honey Wheat and Taro Bacon, and the dogs are dressed with with a secret sauce and relishes made with mango, papaya, and other Hawaiian flavors.

Wursthaus has great beers from the faraway lands of Belgium and Germany, fries that Charles stands by, and a selection of sausages hard to find anywhere else in Santa Ana. If you're bored with chicken or pork, go for a rabbit or lamb sausage that'll be warmly squeezed into a warm roll. And vegan options are also available for your Earth-friendly companions: there's meatless Mexican Chipotle, Smoked Apple & Sage, and Italian dogs.
