1. The Wienery 414 Cedar Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55454 (West Bank)

The fries at this skinny little greasy spoon will make you anything but, with one potato or two (for only $1.50 more) loaded with mock duck, grilled onions, and green peppers. So really, this caloric dish will make you anything butt, in that any part of your body will basically look like a butt.

2. Uncle Franky's - Northeast 728 Broadway St NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413 (Northeast)

Right on Broadway in NE Mpls sits the unassuming little red building that you’ve probably driven by a thousand times, but make no mistake, these folks can bang out some serious dogs. The Coney comes smothered with beautiful beef chili, raw onions, yellow mustard, and then gets topped with melty cheese whiz. Say what you will, but there’s definitely a time and place for nuclear yellow processed cheese.

3. Eli's Food & Cocktails 1225 E Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55403 (Downtown)

This little Downtown bistro serves some pretty serious hot dogs, including the Big Ben topped with smokey bacon and cheddar cheese, and the Sloppy Dog, which comes with sloppy joe meat and a slice of American cheese, but don't forget to try the cocktails too!

4. Kyatchi 3758 Nicollet Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55409 (Southwest)

Kyatchi lives to serve Japanese-style cuisine with an American twist. The Minneapolis sushi hotspot dishes out soups, salads, small plates, grilled fish and seafood, meat skewers, rice, noodles, and, in a true cultural mélange, hot dogs. If you’re intrigued, good; hot dogs, like the kimchi dog with mustard, sesame oil, and Japanese mayo, all come with Japanese potato salad, whose savory flavor gives any typical ballpark frank a run for its money. If it’s more traditional cuisine you’re craving, try veggie or pork ramen, or scallop yuzu kosho, with raw scallops, veggies, chili pepper, yuzu peel, and sea salt. Kyatchi emphasizes sustainable ingredients and delivers them to you in a casual, open dining space decorated with Japanese artwork.

7. Butcher & The Boar 1121 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55403

A deceptively large neighborhood noshery with wood stoves and penny-tiled floors dominated, Butcher puts equal emphasis on bourbon, beer, and shareable plates.
