11:51 p.m. Monday: Best Hot Dog 

Top Dog

There are lots of hot dogs, and you can buy 'em lots of places -- but there's only one Top Dog. Likewise, there are a bunch of Top Dogs, but the real Dog's on Durant, right off the Avenue. Fortunately it's almost always open, closing only between 2 and 11 a.m. Whether you're a Bird Dog boy, a Frankfurter girl, or a Wienie-tarian, Top Dog has the real-deal dog for you. Da O.G. Top Dog is an all-beef, New York-style, kosher-style frankfurter, but don't let that stop you. The Dog has bockwursts and bratwursts, kielbasas and calabreses, linguiças, and even Louisiana hot links. Where else are you gonna get a meal at 1:58 in the a.m. for only $2.50? Just remember: Nothing else is a Top Dog.
