Of the nearly fifteen hot dog choices, I selected the half versions of The Texican Dog loaded with refried black beans, Oaxaca cheese, avocado, pickled jalapeño, red onion, crème fresh, cilantro, cumin and a bit of lime and the somewhat similar Guac-A-Dog with avocado, fresh jalapeño, tomato, onion, roasted garlic aioli, cilantro, cumin and lime. Encompassed by a fresh, flavorful bun, the host of quality, well-chosen toppings and featuring top-notch, meaty dogs that had a nice snap when bitten, these made for a very welcome lunch, more so with a side of fries. Fun and satisfying, and as a testament to the quality of ingredients, tasting even somewhat healthy, well, as healthy as loaded hot dogs can be. The half-sized hot dogs are $4 each.
