Best Hot Dog Brands

The Top Ten

1 Hebrew National

I can't eat any hot dog but Hebrew National. If Hebrew national never existed, then forget hot dogs.

I have been eating, and loving hot dogs most of my life, I'm 61. I have eaten most of the brands offered but Hebrew National dogs are by far the best.

Hebrew National is by far the best, I trust what is in them, after all, "they answer to a Higher Authority" and they taste like real food -

This is defiantly the best brand.

2 Nathan's

The first time I heard of Nathan's was near the end of softball season last summer when my daughter told me that is what the concession stand has at the community youth program baseball and softball park that my granddaughter play and practices at. I tried one (with NO catsup or mustard) and is the first time I thoroughly enjoyed an unadorned hot dog on a bun! They weren't available many places in our area of Southwestern Indiana but they now have them in one of the local grocery chain stores -- Schnuck's -- so now I purchase them for use at home. I had been using the Oscar Mayer angus beef hot dogs -- and those are good too, but Nathans has a special flavor that I just love.

Nathan's are in the top two hands down! They have great taste and texture! I can't believe Ball Park hot dogs are even in the top ten. They have absolutely no texture! Imagine potted meat shaped up to form what resembles a hot dog!

My guess is that the good reviews coming in for Ball Park hotdogs are coming from employees of the company cause they are the worst I've ever eaten! And if you really believe that they are one of the best, then you have never eaten a real hotdog!

My first experience with a Nathan's hot dog was at Sam's club. Chili and mayo and let me say since them I'm hooked. Best hot dog on the mark bar none.

3 Ball Park

I have had every major brand and several of the smaller brands and I say ball parks should be top of the list followed by Hebrew National they are the best for frying, grilling, and boiling. If you don't know how to grill a hot dog don't knock the brand.

I always love ballparks flavor every since I were a little boy many years ago and today they are still my number 1 hotdog follow by Oscar Meyers.

Disgusting, can't eat these. Why are they ranked so high? I like most hot dogs but HATE ball park.

Ballpark beef are the best!

5 Sabrett

I am not a hot dog lover however my better half is, ergo I must occasionally eat a Hot Dog Sabrett is the only one I have tried with no after taste and I will eat two when they are served but will avoid any of the others listed and I have tried them all.

Bronx born almost on every busy corner was a dirty water sabrett stand. I know people who worked at Hebrew national and after the tales I heard, I'll never touch one!

Absolutely the best. I wish they were available outside of the Northeast!

Hands down, the best!
No argument, no question, no other dog!

6 Vienna Beef

In Chicago there is no real Chicago dog but Vienna brand pure beef hot dogs. If you visit here and go out for the famous dogs and you see it is not Vienna brand, then you at getting ripped off. in Chicago it is the number 1 brand used by all the best places. I have also tried all the above mentioned brands and thy do not come close. Once you try it you will have to agree.

In Chicago, the Vienna brand 100% All Bee Hot Dog is king. When pulling up to any hot dog stand in the city, the first thing most Chicagoans look for is the Vienna Beef logo. If it's not there, don't stop. Not that many places that still make natural casing dogs that seal in the juices and give the dog a snap at first bite.

Vienna is by far the best hotdog...period. Hebrew National are over rated big time. All the rest of them are TERRIBLE.

There is not a better hot dog in the world...

7 Oscar Mayer

Too me, Oscar Meyer is the best. But, I have not tried a Nathan's or Hebrew.

My wife likes the Ball Park wiener, but when they are grilled they blowup and look strange. Oscar Meyer tastes great and grill better than Ball Park.

In our family it is Oscar Mayer. They are the best on a open fire. We are a Oscar Mayer Wieners. Mary

The all beef dog is my fave.

The best of the best!

Hoffmann with natural casing best flavor. Grill up nicely with a pop when done.

9 Koegel's

Always in good taste!

After all thees years we still take a 5# box when we go to Tucson for the winter. No bad hotdogs in Michigan because of the state meat rules, they actually have to have real meat. Truly the best hotdog in the US. Hebrew Nat is living on its past rep and were just awful when I tried them late last year.

Need to sell in more states like Georgia

They are the best. made in mich no snot or inner best dog around

10 Best's

What grocery store sells Best's brand hot dogs

Great tasting. Lower in sodium and other not good stuff.

Great texture... Great taste. Good all the way around!

These are good hot dogs at a decent price. I am picky about dogs. Sabrett, Hebrew N and sometimes Nathans. I moved to Florida and can't find Best Hot Dogs. Gonna google now to see if they can be mailed if I find them.

The Contenders

11 Applegate Farms

BEST hot dog by far. NO nitrites!

Yum and guilt free.

Quality all beef; best flavor.


12 Hummels

Absolutely the best. Have tried every other hot dog out there, but none can top Hummel's. People go to the Northeast for lobster, but I go for a grilled Hummel's hot dog in natural casing and with mustard relish on top. Yum!

The best without a doubt

My Uncle brings them down every year from Connecticut there by far the best on the griddle maid the old way

All is good... but you have to try Hummels Big Bites... The best...!

13 Boars Head

Make sure you buy the all beef or beef and pork with natural casing to get to get that snap when you bite into it. The taste really delivers, absolutely delicious.

Delicious any way you choose to prepare em!

Boar's Head is hands down superior to all others listed. That snap when you bite into dog is what it is all about

Far superior than all the rest! #1 hands down!

20 Bryan Juicy Jumbos

My family loves the Bryan Juice Jumbo Hot dogs; however, we can no longer buy them in our area. I have written to the company a number of times yet the company continues to push the Ball Park hotdog, which in my opinion, cannot compare to Bryan. We wish the company would once again distribute the product to our area. There is not a better tasting hot dog than Bryan...

I have yet to taste a better hotdog than Bryans. Unfortunately Sara Lee bought the company and also owns Ball Park hotdogs. Sara Lee has discontinued distribution of Bryan Hotdogs just about everywhere in favor of the more profitable Ball Park.

Since I moved to dallas 3 years ago I have not seen Bryan's beef jumbos anywhere although it was the only brand I bought in Alabama. No hot dog can compare o Bryan's and the worst one I ever had was. Ball park. Awful.

Best Dog in the World!
