Literally one of the only things I could find open on Thanksgiving and I was disappointed to have to get a hot dog but it was surprisingly good! Perfectly toasted bun with mustard assortment!!! A must try if in the area for a quick bite.

The choice of Hot Dogs & Sausages is vast, the ones we ate were fantastic. Our order taker/cook was a little grumpy, possibly because UC Berkeley just started the school year & was busy, but he cooked a great dog!

The place is essentially a hole in the wall. Great value for the money. The buns are perfectly toasted with a good variety of dogs to choose from. Kids love them. Will be back for more.

Right around the corner fm where we stayed. Unexpected find that turned out to be a fun place with smart staff. The bratwurst was as good as you get anywhere. Appears there's a loyal following of regulars for good reason. We'll be back when in...More

We were exploring rainy Berkeley and needed a quick treat - I have lived in Germany for a while before so I was keen to get some bratwurst, so we gave Top Dog a try. We were certainly not disappointed, I loved their selection (bratwurst,...More
