Top Veggie Hot Dogs

PETA publishes its first-ever list of the best veg hot dogs in the country.

Forget the most veg-friendly ballparks—People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is moving on to hot dogs. The animal-rights organization has released its first-ever “Top Five Veggie Dogs in America” ranking. The top dog? The Fire on the Rhine from Dirty Frank’s Hot Dog Palace in Columbus, Ohio, a veggie dog grilled with Sriracha, chili paste, garlic, and onions, then topped with spicy sauerkraut. The rest of the list includes the Chicago Impostor from Pittsburgh’s Franktuary; the veggie Puka Dog from Puka Dog in Honolulu and Koloa, Hawaii; the City Dog from Salt Lake City’s veg food cart City Dog; and the veggie dog from the St. Petersburg, Fla.-based vegan food truck Lettuce Eat Healthy.
