If one serving of meat isn't enough for you, Top Dog has the answer. Its Sonoran hot dog comes swathed in strips of crispy bacon and then stuffed inside a brioche bun. Topped with pinto beans, diced tomatoes, caramelized onions, and mustard-lime mayo, the Sonoran dog packs plenty of protein into a single sandwich.

It's just one of the signature hot dogs that Top Dog food truck has been doling out to Tysons Corner since 2010. Although it's on the move most of the time, the food truck often sets up shop near Avalon Park Crest, so chances are you'll have easy access to the franks at some point.
