¡Viva Los Hotdogueros!

26 Aug

The New York Times published an article today entitled “In Praise of the All-American Mexican Hot Dog.”

The article not only describes the wonder that is the Sonoran Hot Dog, but visits Dove&Snake restaurant of choice, El Güero Canelo, right here in Tucson.

Here’s our favorite snippet from the article:

“In Tucson, bacon-wrapped, Mexican-dressed hot dogs are not ascendant. They’re dominant.”

Read the article to get a little history lesson on the origin(s) of the hot dog in its south-of-the-border incarnation, as well as to enjoy the national spotlight shining on a local favorite.

    Whoa this is so great! My boyfriend from Boulder, CO, just came to Tucson a bit ago, and he had an El Guero hot dog. He doesn’t like onions much, but he wanted the full experience.
