Franks. Dogs. Frankfurter. Corn dog. Beef frank. One man’s caviar is another man’s hot dog. And they’re not created equal. Is the bun fresh? Is it served on a toasted whole-wheat bun? Maybe you consider your ultimate hot dog kosher and gluten free? Or is it specialized with toasted sourdough, spicy horseradish mustard and caramelized purple onions? You name it, it has been served — some more well received than others. To many, the classic kind with plain mustard, relish and onions is the way to go — the kind where the hot dog is extending outside the bun for the extra bite on each end. Whichever hot dog type you are, we’ve got you covered. Here are the places that serve the best hot dogs in Last Vegas.
