The Best Hot Dogs In The World Can Be Found At This Tiny Hole-In-The-Wall In Northern California
Burger stands are a dime a dozen but what about hot dog-centric restaurants? It’s rare that you see a restaurant focus solely on hot dogs and hot dogs only. It turns out that’s exactly what you’ll get when you visit this little hole-in-the-wall joint in Sacramento. Boasting pretty much every type of hot dog and sausage you can think of, along with every topping you could ever dream of scattering on top, this little restaurant is a paradise for wiener enthusiasts. Heck, there’s a reason this place has been repeatedly nominated for Best Hot Dog in Sacramento and you’ll definitely want to find out for yourself.
Do you ever find yourself craving a good ol' fashioned frankenfurter, only to struggle to find a restaurant that takes hot dogs as seriously as any other food item? It can be difficult but you'll find one of the best hiding out in Sacramento. This hole-in-the-wall may not look like much but you're about to find out what all the fuss is about.
Located in a little strip mall beside the road, Wiener Works is easy to drive by without giving it a second glance. However, this gem of an eatery is about to become your go-to place for some of the best hot dogs you'll ever have.
The interior is wonderfully eccentric, although slightly outdated (in a charming way). The small space is covered in sports-themed decor, graffiti by customers old and new, and local memorabilia. It's definitely the kind of place where you can picture yourself becoming a regular.
Who knew hot dogs could come in so many different ways? You'll find that the menu is massive and you could spend forever perusing it, but it's best to go with your gut on this one.
The restaurant specializes in hot dogs, sausages, and kraut dogs. They pride themselves in serving very large portions. If you're feeling extra hungry, you can even opt for their famous 14-inch "Wonderdog".
They provide you with ample portions of classic toppings such as mustard, relish, onions, and tomatoes. On top of that, they even boast some unique toppings such as the made-in-house sweet and sour red cabbage.
Nothing goes better with a pure beef hot dog than a whopping serving of chili cheese fries! Did we mention the "cheese" part? There's a lot of it and it's downright amazing.
Maybe you're more of a burger person. Well, they sell those, too—made with 100% beef. And they even offer a "Frankenburger" for those who can't choose! The next time that craving hits for this classic item of American cuisine, be sure to make your way to Wiener Works.
You'll find Wiener Works at 5207 Madison Ave, Sacramento, CA 95841.
