LA's Iconic Summer Eats: The Dodger Dog

There are "gourmet" hot dogs all over LA - Let's Be Frank, Wurstkuche, even Berlin Currywurst's curry-drenched franks. But nothing says summer quite like the Dodger Dog, the 10-inch Farmer John hotdog anyone who's anyone gets at Dodger Stadium. Sure, there are a slew of new food options at the ballpark this season, but the $5 steamed or grilled dogs are a rite of passage when you go see the Boys in Blue. You're at a baseball game, for crying out loud. Even if it's the only hot dog you eat all year, it's practically mandatory.

The beef and pork or all-beef franks aren't fancy. It's an extra long dog, you have the basics for toppings (unless you get a Doyer Dog with nacho cheese, chili, salsa, and jalapenos), and the bun is smooshed by the time you get back to your seat. They're good as far as your classic hot dog goes. But when you're watching Puig or Gonzales hit a homer - heck, even if they're losing - with a cold beer by your side and a Dodger Dog in your hand, it is the quintessential summer moment.
