Located in an area that offers all of the architectural charm of a box – a strip mall - is the famous Fab Hot Dogs in Reseda, Calif. This place was once featured on the Food Network's Diners, Drive Ins and Dives, and does indeed offer one of the better, and diverse, selections of hot dogs.
The ambiance inside this place features the obligatory signed poster by Guy Fieri, some celebs’ autographs on the wall, and a large collection of photographs of patrons who have completed everything on the menu. Not in one sitting.
On the diverse menu are sausages and hamburgers, but if the name on the restaurant is a hot dog you order a hot dog.
A famous dog in LA is the LA Street Dog, which is made available in several of the more popular hot dog destinations. At Fab Hot Dogs, The LA Street Dog is a foot-long wrapped in bacon, and covered in mustard, ketchup, may, onions, peppers and jalapenos.
It does not look like there is a hot dog in this photo, but underneath all of this dressing is a legit ‘dog. It is also a hot dog that does not require trickery. Normally, an overly-dressed dog is a sign that it is some lame, weak, pathetic piece of meat. Not the case here. This is a solid link.
Combine that dog with all of the stuff they put on it here, especially the peppers and the bacon, and you do have one of the better hot dogs around.
And it’s only 38 calories (that may not be accurate).
Fab Hot Dogs has a few locations in LA, and when you are in the area this is a solid choice.
