From classic franks to artisan wieners with toppings like kimchi, here are the nation’s best hot dogs.

Senate Restaurant; Cincinnati

Chef Daniel Wright has received national accolades for his playful takes on pub food, including a regularly changing menu of hot dogs like the Croque Madame (Black Forest ham, poached egg, béchamel) and the Lindsey Lohan (goat cheese, caramelized onions, bacon, arugula and balsamic vinegar). senatepub.com

At Doug Sohn’s hot dog temple, the specialty sausages are named after celebrities: the Anna Kendrick, for instance, is a spicy dog. Purists stick to The Dog, a Chicago-style dog with trimmings like celery salt, along with a side of duck-fat fries (only available on Friday and Saturday). The lines often stretch down around the block, and real dogs are allowed on the outdoor patio. hotdougs.com

Childhood pals Brian Shebairo and Chris Antista differentiate themselves in the city’s crowded hot dog market by deep-frying their franks to a crisp snap before serving them in a choice of more than a dozen mad scientist combinations that include a bacon wrap and toppings such as avocado, cream cheese, and a fried egg. crifdogs.com

The franks served here are Vienna all-beef wieners; beyond that, Dirty Franks has made sure to create an option for just about everyone. There are more than 20 styles to choose from, including toppings like brisket, corn relish and Sriracha-cream cheese. Vegetarians are covered, too: The same treatments are offered for Tofurky pups. dirtyfrankscolumbus.com

This 1917 drive-in is a central New York landmark and one of the oldest drive-ins in the country. The frank of choice is a griddled Hofmann’s white Coney—made with pork, veal, and egg whites—and served on a New England-style split-top roll, either one or two to a bun. heidsofliverpool.com

Puka Dog; Koloa, Kauai, Hawaii

Hawaiians have long had a love for processed meats—see Spam musubi, a popular sushi-like snack made with the canned meat product. This remote island spot specializes in hot dogs that are plugged into house-baked sweet rolls toasted on custom spikes (this creates a hole in the middle so the buns don’t have to be sliced). The bun serves as a jacket for a grilled Polish sausage that is finished with tropical toppings like garlicky lemon sauce and banana relish. pukadog.com

This legendary Hollywood hot dog shack has been in business since 1939, but the menu has evolved with pop culture. Current editions include the Martha Stewart dog (topped with relish, onions, bacon, chopped tomatoes, sauerkraut and sour cream), and one named for Gustavo Dudamel, the L.A. Philharmonic’s current music director and conductor (toppings include guacamole, American and Swiss cheese, jalapeño slices and tortilla chips). pinkshollywood.com

Chef Bill Kim’s Asian-Latino food comes fast and casual in a stripped-down setting under the Blue Line El tracks. Hot-and-sour soup studded with hominy evokes the Mexican soup posole. Kim uses noodles, too, in unexpected ways, such as tucking crispy egg noodles and kimchi salsa in the bun of Chicago’s beloved hot dog. bellyshack.com
