One Stop Coney‘s the Picasso Pepper, a hot dog topped with jalapenos, banana peppers, kraut, onion, mayo, tomatoes, swiss cheese and Frank’s Red Hot.

The Blue Dog Tavern in Grand Rapids serves a new take on a classic with the BLT Dog. The restaurant also offers bacon lovers the Butch which is a bacon wrapped all beef frank deep fried and covered with ground mustard and onions.

Served on a poppy seed bun Old Dog Tavern offers the California Dog.  A Nathan’s All American hot dog topped with cucumber, avocado, tomato and arugula.

Combining two popular dishes Hollands Downtown Dogs offers the Burrito Dog. Those who take on this unique hot dog will devour a hot dog and bun wrapped in a grilled burrito with taco meat and nacho cheese.

Happy celebrating!
