San Francisco: Show Dogs
Right up front I'm gonna admit this place is a little pretentious (with prices to match) and most of the sausages on the menu will strike you as unusual (to say the least). Also, it's on the worst/scariest stretch of Mid-Market St (intentionally--the owner also owns some other nearby real estate and is trying to upgrade the 'hood).
But after much delay, I went there to try it and had a "Pickled Hot Link with blue cheese sauce" and fell in love. I mean this has little in common with a regular old hot dog but it is just killer. Trust me.
Here's their web site with their full menu: http://showdogssf.com/menu/
Here's all kinds of photos of the place and its food: http://www.yelp.com/biz_p...473hMXQ3uo2TWPEHwG7Unw
