The place is essentially a hole in the wall. Great value for the money. The buns are perfectly toasted with a good variety of dogs to choose from. Kids love them. Will be back for more.

The next time you're heading to Berkeley, California stop off at top dog. It was the best hotdog I've ever tried. The uniqueness of how the dogs are grilled and the type of bread they use instead of a bun makes for a very delicious...More
