Best Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dog

Leo's Hot Dogs

They're known elsewhere as Tijuana Bacon Dogs — and if the word “Tijuana” doesn't sufficiently connote danger, they're also called Danger Dogs — but in San Francisco, we just call 'em what they are: bacon-wrapped hot dogs. Also, “delicious.” There are growing numbers of vendors in the Mission, but aficionados of frankfurters swaddled in salted pork belly swear by Leo's Hot Dogs, a shiny metal trailer found at the southwest corner of 19th and Mission on weekend nights. Be sure to ask for extra onions, and remember: You could die tomorrow, so why not enjoy a bacon-wrapped hot dog today?
