Nana’s New York Hotdog Shop

Nana’s New York Hotdog Shop

1110 Federal Street, North Side.
On Nana’s back hangs a sign stating that you are not in a fast food restaurant. But waiting for your order is perhaps the best part of this tiny club for moms and dads on the North Side. The menu has not only pork and beef dogs, but also burgers and an assortment of breakfasts, and while a few chefs behind the counter fulfill orders, expect you to overhear gossip and cheerful company. Hot dogs, though basic, are also delicious and with a cut in the middle, perfect for storing a lot of available fillings. Just come early; The store is open only on weekdays from 8.30 to 14.30 Lisa Cunningham

626 Smithfield St, city center.
In addition to the old diner setting and impeccable service speed, Wiener World serves “the best dogs in town”. Or so says the customer who ordered in front of me. Their classic beef hot dogs are juicy and even slightly sweet and can be loaded with a range of fillings that they have on hand. However, you can also do a little and order their “dog of the day” which on the day I visited was a beef hot dog on a pretzel bun with melted cheddar, bacon and fried onions. Wiener World is a favorite among the working crowd in the city center and, despite its name, also offers a wide selection of sandwiches, salads and ice cream. Lucy Chen

Want to experiment with ordering hot dogs? There is no better place to try the filling than Frankie Banza. Their list includes shriracha mayonnaise, avocado and candied bacon. You can make your own, including replacing plant dogs, but their special items – this is where they really become resourceful. For example, their Pittsdogger hot dog is pretty well seasoned with french fries and cabbage salad, and they even serve Thai dog with spicy peanut sauce and cabbage. I ordered Eliot Ness – aka the Chicago dog – which came with an appropriate stuffing overload. The salty click of the hot dog complemented the sweet and sour taste of the taste, pickles, mustard and celery salt. Bonus: try their egg buns, which are made according to the same recipe as the tea garden of the late Charlie Ung. Hannah Kinney-Cobra

El Bura

1108 Pittsburgh St., North Side and 1113 S. Braddock Ave., Regent Square.
You don’t expect a Mexican restaurant to serve hot dogs, but El Burro will surprise you with its Tijuana Street Dog. The hot dog is wrapped in bacon and covered with a bag, pico de halo, jalapeno and avocado salsa. Avocado and jalapeno salsas provide the perfect and unexpected amount of spiciness and sweetness, while pico de halo and kesa put cherries on top when it comes to its presentation. – Vladimir Garcia

It’s a simple, only existing Pittsburgh facility older than my grandparents. He advertises four sandwiches in his handwritten menu, which is glued to a plastic barrier above the recorder: sausage, hot sausage, meatballs and hot dog. Once praised the former KP editor-in-chief Alex Gordon as “the antidote to the Pittsburgh tour scene”, Frankie Extra Long it is a reliably fast, cheap and tasty choice. Serving chili and cheese for my dog ​​was easy, making it a good option for those who want to taste dog with chili cheese without risking staying stained on the shirt. Giordano Rosenfeld

Return to “Snoop Dogg” from Foodture

Return to Foodture

2767 E. Carson St. South Side. Facebook search “Back to food”
While landscapes take you back in time, Back to the Foodture is the “food” of the restaurant industry. Arriving on the South Side just two years ago, Back to the Foodture is quietly becoming one of the best hot dog spots in Pittsburgh. If you think you’re only leaving with a hot dog, then you’ve thought wrong. Having 14 different tastes, it is doubtful that customers have previously had these types of hot dogs. One of their most popular hot dogs is the delicious “Snoop Dogg”, which comes wrapped in bacon before grilling and then sprinkled with cream cheese and “24k sauce”. In addition to their hot dogs, they also have over 100 flavored wings, burgers and over 30 different types of french fries. “Dontey Washington.”
