Byron's Hot Dog Haus

Hot Dog Joint

On the side of this tiny Lakeview hot dog stand is written: “You are about to have the best hot dog in town" -- and that's no exaggeration. Byron's sticks to tradition, keeping its menu the same since it opened in 1975. The dogs here come in three sizes: an 1/8lb, a 1/4b Jumbo Dog, and a half-pound Dogzilla. They come with mustard, relish, onions, tomato slices, a pickle spear, celery salt, and hot peppers. Not enough toppings for you? You can also throw on some cucumber, lettuce, and green pepper. Be sure to order a scrumptious shoestring fries, too.
