Best Sonoran Hot Dogs

El Guero Canelo

Readers Pick

The writer Jim Harrison once wrote that only in the Midwest is eating considered to be an Olympic sport. Or something like that--he was quoting his pal Jack Nicholson. Nevertheless, here in Tucson, you'll be tempted to engage in your own private little gustatory Olympics at El Guero Canelo. These are hands-down the best Sonoran hot dogs in town--wrapped up in bacon and cradled in just the right amount of beans, grilled onions, tomatoes, mayo and mustard, and then topped with just a touch of jalapeño sauce. The rest of El Guero Canelo's menu is terrific (they even serve breakfast), but it's the Sonoran hot dogs that are the gold-medal winners.
