5 to Try: Hot Dogs in San Diego

Petco Park

100 Park Blvd, San Diego, CA 92101

Take the extra time to walk around to the kosher dog stands over by the "park at the park." You'll be glad you did when you're biting into the juicy, flavorful Hebrew National dog rather than the bland, salty boiled one. If you're on a budget, hit up the "Littlest Fan" shack after the 7th inning, where they'll sell you a kids' dog for just $1.

For foodies and gourmands everywhere: We've found your go-to dog spot. North Park's slow food mecca The Linkery doesn't exactly make hot dogs in the traditional sense of the "mystery beef" slapped in a bun with mustard. But owner Jay does make some of the city's best sausages in-house, wrapped in everything from a multi-grain roll to a pita pocket.

Just the name says, these down-home dogs taste like Chicago on a bun.
