Should you order a hot dog at a Mexican restaurant? Uh, yeah, you should. Because this bacon-wrapped hot dog with mayonnaise, mustard, pinto beans, cheese, pickled jalapeños, and avocado is all wrapped in a flour tortilla like no other before it. Does it get more Mexican than that for hot dogs? We think not. Everything is made from scratch at this Mission-style taqueria, so you can't go wrong, but you're definitely also going to want to try the mini crispy churros. If it's warm enough (which it will be because: Oakland), take your food outside and enjoy it on the hidden back patio.
