Not everyone wishes they were an Oscar Mayer weiner. That is not what everyone wants to be.
But if everyone were a Po Dog weiner, everyone would be in love with themselves.
The Hill’s new haute dog stand offers deep-fried pepper-bacon-wrapped frankfurters, peanut-butter- and banana-topped weenies, and wasabi franks wrapped in an egg roll. Choose all-beef kosher or veggie dogs surrounded by a Macrina brioche bun. Fries, homemade Argentinean potato chips, and beer sate late-night cravings.
And twenty types of fixings range from the exotic (pico de gallo, sport peppers) to solid standbys like kraut and tomatoes.
Take a seat amid the highly stylized black and white surroundings in secluded booths or at the quartz bar.
The decor alone puts it in the weiners’ circle.
