My First Bacon-Wrapped Wiener


The Tucson, AZ restaurant El Guero Canelo, which resembles a Winnebago-sized taco truck attached to a small greenhouse, serves up a large variety of southwestern favorites. But the best item on the menu will appeal to meateaters all over the world: the sonoran dog, also known as a bacon-wrapped hot dog. Most impressive is the Sammy dog, which includes two bacon-wrapped weiners in one bun. Both come covered with onions, diced tomato, relish and sour cream. Unless you speak fluent spanish, don’t count on being able to ask for one with different condiments – like I said, this place is authentic.

Since this was my first bacon-wrapped frank, I was glad it came out so delicious, with the ballpark-style dog and the sweet, greasy bacon complimenting each other nicely. The whole contraption was a ton of fun to eat, with the dog slipped into a partially-sealed (and fluffily sweet) bun. It took a lot of restraint not to go back for a second (or a third).

  1. Crif Dogs my friend, Crif Dogs. When you come to NY it’s on. We’re going and we’re goin to kill it.

    Bacon wrapped dogs topped with everything from cole slaw, cream cheese, avocado, fried eggs and more. You could even get all of those on one dog if you were crazy enough.
