Crif Dogs, New York, NY

Crif Dogs Restaurant Review

: New Yorkers hardly need to search for a hot dog --- they’re on every street corner --- but they do need to search for a good one. Crif Dogs, a neighborhood staple in the East Village, turns out delicious (and alcohol-absorbent) variations on the humble dog late into the night. You can get a regular tube steak with all the classic toppings, but why do that, when you could help yourself instead to a Chihuahua, a hot dog wrapped in bacon and covered with avocado and sour cream? The minds at Crif Dogs have no fear when it comes to tinkering with the frankfurter; they'll even top it with chili and jalapeños (Spicy Red Neck). There are a variety of sides, including crisp tater tots, but night-owls flock here for the dogs, and they are rarely disappointed. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a vanilla, chocolate, strawberry or coffee milkshake. A few beers are also available.
