Gourmet sausages and libertarian propaganda, a hot-dog stand with a Berkeley twist. – In Short
Low prices, late-night hours and convenient location make Top Dog a popular destination for students and sausage devotees of all ages. The walls are plastered with libertarian and anti-government quotations, cartoons and clippings, all worth a free chortle. Sausages range from hot links with a serious kick to classic kielbasa to chicken apple. The chefs cook all sausages to order on the grill, and even the buns are griddled to a golden crisp.
Some of the World's Best Dogs! – Maybe I'm just sentimental, or maybe the management really has searched for the best hot dogs available, or maybe it's both! I'll never forget the northside or southside Top Dog restaurants I frequented in my college years. I always make a point of going by when I'm in the Bay Area. I recommend the "Bock" with stoneground mustard and sauerkraut. Fabulous! Or maybe I'm just sentimental...
