Guess what, New York ... you do NOT have the lock on street hot dogs. No, you don't. The ultimate street hot dog is in L.A. We're just not as all up in your face about it.
Get it all the way with onions, peppers, cilantro, and mustard. They always taste better while drunk, so don't worry -- there's bound to be a few of them outside the bar at last call.
The shadier and less sanitary the vendor looks, the better it's going to be.
