Regional Hot Dogs Styles Across America

Jenn Sit of Serious Eats' Eating Out Blog posted a very interesting article about the various regional styles of American hot dogs. This one above is the "Sonorans" from Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona:

Bacon-wrapped hot dogs are grilled, then nestled in steamed bolillo rolls and topped with pinto beans, chopped tomatoes, onions, mustard, mayo, and jalapeños. Other variations could include any of the following: shredded cheddar, queso fresco, cotija cheese, salsa verde, and guacamole.

I say anything wrapped in bacon is a plus! Is your hometown's dog listed? - Thanks raphael!

Aww, thanks.

I wouldn't live in Miami again, honestly, but that doesn't take away the fond memories I have of the place, and the food. Now not only do I want a roach coach dog, but I'm hankering for a frita from Morro Castle on 12th Ave. in Hialeah.

Totally. When I was in high school, I would run to the roach coach for one of those every day at lunch time so that I could be first in line.

I know I can't recreate it, but I am going to try. Your post just took me back to the old days. ;)
