Sonoran Dogs


Sonoran Hotdogs. Mmmm.

"The Sonoran hot dog may take the phrase "with everything" to new heights. It starts with a hot dog wrapped in bacon. Then you begin piling on the beans, grilled onions, fresh onions, tomatoes, mayonnaise, cream sauce, mustard and jalapeno salsa. Add radishes, cucumbers, whole chilies and even mushrooms, if you want."


  1. Looks amazing! Is there a particular restaraunt you recommend that is off I-10? I will be driving through to PHX soon.

  2. You can get this in a lot of places, Tod, especially from the taco vans. They usually have them. If you were going through Tucson, I could help, but I'm not as familiar with Phoenix.

  3. I will be traveling I-10 El Paso to Phoenix so I do pass through Tuscon don't I? Man I am really losing the memory, it has been 15 years since I drove to Tuscon but still...should be able to remember these things! Will do a mapquest to see how far out of the way it is to swing into Tuscon.
