OC Weekly's Description

Berekeley Dog is a Bay Area institution; known there as Top Dog, it is as much a part of UC Berkeley's identity as not being able to afford to eat at Chez Panisse. Each sausage is stellar: thick, juicy, with strong snaps and enough heft to fill you but not make you feel guilty. It's best to stick with the classics—a hearty bratwurst, a Louisiana link with the right amount of spice, a smoked chicken apple that’s actually enjoyable. And regardless of tube steak, they each settle inside what’s perhaps the sturdiest hot dog bun in the county, a sesame-seeded beauty that could probably survive a dunk in a bathtub and still not disintegrate under the weight of its holdings.

Tips from foursquare

    6 different specialty mustards. Try the coney island mustard.

  • M W. on 06/27/11

    A good substitute for those missing "Top Dog" in Berkeley! "Tops" = frankfurters here! Same great meat, buns but expensive. Lots of other options + sides + the new cool "freestyle" Coke machines!

  • Paul on 08/25/12

    Bacon Hash Dog!

  • Harry P. on 09/20/11

    first kind of soda machine I've ever seen, try it. So many different flavors to choose from.

  • Patrick P. on 01/23/14

    The Monster Fries are good and worth trying, but I think there's too much flavor going on for it to be great.
