Ten Great Hot Dogs In Orange County
3. Disneyland Corn Dogs
Let's face it: Disneyland isn't known for its gustatory delights. People's love for the gumbo in a bread bowl or fried chicken are probably best chalked up to nostalgia. There are a couple of gems, though, and a freshly fried corn dog, with the perfect mixture of cornbread batter and snappy sausage, from the little red wagon behind the Plaza Inn ranks high on the list of things to do at the Happiest Place on Earth.
Off Main Street, U.S.A. at Disneyland: 1313 S. Harbor Blvd., Anaheim; 714-781-4000; disneyland.com.

1. Berkeley Dog
The perfect sausage. No matter which one you get--chicken and apple, standard hot dog, bratwurst--it'll have the snap of a Nathan's natural-casing frank, encased in a bun that puts all those steamed, soft pillows to shame. You'll be flooded with choices--they have a dozen kinds of mustard alone--but when you're done choosing, you'll be happy. After all, how can you say no to a hot dog with bacon and hash browns?
