    I've lived here 9 years and had not heard of 2 of these places, Two Hippees & the Chicago Dog place. Heard of Fines Cellar but never thought of it as a Hot Dog Joint. I'll be downtown on Thursday & will try Two Hippees & Report. The one on Bell Road is 50 miles from me. It's a BIG Valley of the Sun out here!
    Fines Cellar has no interest to me at all for a hot dog place.
     
    There are plenty of other places out here that serve Chicago/ Vienna style dogs that are more "Roadfood" in nature.

        Agreed1 Fines wouldn't know a Hot Dog from a Weiner Schitzel. Fines is a Yuppie Wine Bar

          As Promised, here's a review of Two Hippies Magic Mushroom in Phoenix @ Indian School & 8th St.
          The place is "UNIQUE". A very small Hole-in-the Wall decorated by someone on the Drugs of choice from the '60's & '70's. Psycho-delic! Not much seating to speak of. A Small front Patio & a smaller Back Patio with bar stools facing a board that serves as a table. They feature only 3 items- Steakburgers, All Beef Hebrew National 5/1 Hot Dogs & Chicken Breast Sandwiches + Sides & Shasta Sodas. (No name brands.). ALL ITEMS ARE $3.50 regardless of toppings and the Combo meals include Shoestring Fries & soda for $5.00. That's it!!!Steakburgers include Magic Mushroom, Roasted Green Chili, Bacon, Greek, Guacamole, Cheese, Veggie & Plain, All can be topped with Lettuce Tomato & Liquid Sunshine Sauce. Hot Dog toppings other than the normal stuff like Mustard, Kraut, Chili etc include Magic Mushroom, Jalapeno & Cheese, "Georgia" which is some kind of pesto & Bacon/Cheese.
          I ordered the Magic Mushroom with Mustard & Onions Combo. The Dog is split & Flat Grilled to get a char on it. It was served on a room temp small hoagie roll, not a bun. It came to me without the shrooms. Had to take it back to get the schrooms put on it. Ate it open faced. The roll is not a good fit with the rest of it. Didn't eat the roll.  Nothing Magic about the Schrooms. just out of a can & seasoned a little. The fries were non-discript and hard. The seating was uncomfortable and it's hard to eat off a board on the wall.  Overall a below average meal. Not worth a 45 mile round trip drive.
          I will go back one more time to try the Steakburger if I'm nearby. They sell a lot more of those based on what I saw coming out of the kitchen. They looked pretty good and several people said they were good.
          Worth a one time visit to see the place, but would not go out of my way to go there again.

            these places focus more on thier surroundings then the food.

              Thanks for the review. I'll pass on a visit the next time I'm in PHX.
