    If you need a dirty dog or a dirty burger with all the trimmings it's a good fast food joint. Not that cheap though.

    The Sunrise Showdog was my favorite. I never thought an omelette and a hot dog would be so delicious. The Breakfast Lavash was also surprisingly light and delicious.

    Go traditional with the Italian Pork Sausage, or go fancy with the Smoked Merguez; a spicy sausage topped with house-made fig chutney and house Dijon. All signature dogs are also made in-house. Read more

    Order the poached egg, sausage and toast. Grab some homemade apple jam on the condiment counter. Perfect pairing of spicy and just a little sweet.

    This place is a joke. I've been here several times & they always get either my or my companion's order wrong. Service is terrible. Food is subpar and often cold. So overpriced. Don't buy the hype

    If you expect pastrami in the hashtag sandwich, think again. This was mostly potatoes and bread. Also, it is spicy and tastes nothing like you'd expect hash to be like. Hipster food for sure.

    The Beef Chili Cheese Dog was pretty good. However, the 49er Corn Dog was a big let down. It was mushy. There was no crispness whatsoever. Plus, there the grain of the corn meal was too coarse.
