EDITOR'S NOTE: An updated version of this article (08 December 2023) is available as part of the Historical section of our Substack page. Check that out here:
The Mexican state of Sonora has a northern border almost exactly the same length and lining up to that of Arizona, so it makes sense that many people of Sonoran descent have ended up in that state, bringing their style of hot dogs with them. Visit Tucson, the closest big city to the southern border and you can find Sonoran hot dogs like those at El Gรผero Canelo in many places. The dog, and the bun it lives in, are stars of the the city and state.

In more recent years, the style has been spreading westward to Los Angeles as Sonoran influence grows and the hot dogs inspired others to naturally crave them here as well. While some restaurants have opened in Tucson and Phoenix, the best way to enjoy them might still be in the park from a vendor, making Los Dogos a natural winner.

The operators do have other jobs, so give them a bit of time after the listed 18:00 opening to arrive and get set up. East Rancho Dominguez Park has a few other trucks and vendors lining Atlantic Avenue, so there is always an opportunity to have an appetizer. Compton families come here and open up the back of their SUVs to create somewhat of a tailgating experience on pleasant evenings.

The original version is $5, while three more options with add-ons cost $6, including the hass (below), a bacon-wrapped dog that is joined by a grilled chile california and melted cheese.

For whatever reason, they have put an award ribbon on the haas, calling it "best choice," but any choice is fine since it all comes on the amazingly pillowy and slightly sweet bolillo-style bun. The next few nights were filled with dreams of this delicious bread.

The other ingredients inside of all four options are customizable but include beans, onions, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, and an avocado salsa.

The dog's story goes back about 30 years ago to Sonora's capital city of Hermosillo, but techniques and toppings adapted and changed as the snack came north to Arizona and eventually west to California. Have you had the dog in Sonora and/or Arizona and have a favorite? Tell us more!
