Fab Hot Dogs

19417 Victory Boulevard, Reseda, CA - (818) 344-4336‎
Posted By Samuel Shor on 9/2/2009 5:15:00 PM
Fab is known for their “Ripper,” which is a fried hot dog that bursts when done to give the signature look. I asked the lady what I should get and she said that one of her favorites was the Bald Eagle, which is a Ripper with their signature relish which is a little sweet and a little spicy. I loved it. I added catsup, which I know can be a sin, and a little chopped onions.

They have many many more varieties of dogs to choose from and I’d probably need a good week or two to sample them all. They also offer them served wrapped up in a tortilla; those look extremely delicious.

There is not much seating and it gets packed quickly. I would suggest you get yours to go. These are definitely worth a try.

This crowd inside the small store is due to Fab’s being featured recently on the Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives TV show.
