8 of The Best Hot Dog Brands

Hot dogs are a mainstay of American cuisine, whether it’s at the ballpark, on the streets of New York, or at the Costco food court. They can have a variety of meat types and cooking techniques to alter the flavor or texture. If you can’t get the real kind at the fair or on the street, you may still prepare them at home using a cooktop, grill, or microwave. Thankfully, most states also have a hot dog joint that you simply must visit to satisfy your hunger.

It’s difficult to determine which are the best hot dogs because there are so many varieties available. To find out which hot dogs are worth your time and money, we looked into eight different varieties, including the original BallPark dogs and the original New York street-style dogs. Along with other items the firms sell that you might want to pair with your hot dog, we’ve included them below in no particular order.
