10 Great Tucson Sonoran Dogs

Tucson's semi-official dish shows up in unique ways on menus all over town.

Yes, the Sonoran hot dog probably came from Sonora - Hermosillo, more likely than not, but most of the history of a bacon-wrapped hot dog in a toasted bun covered in the accessories of the America/Mexico border (beans, chopped tomatoes, onion, mustard, jalapeno sauce, mayonnaise) has been lost to time. Whoever came up with this mashup, the true birthplace of the dish is on the streets. A cart outside a bar, a trailer in an empty lot somewhere. Sonoran hot dogs are a perfect expression of street food.

Wherever the Sonoran dog originated from, it found its true home in Tucson, Arizona. It’s anyone’s guess how many places serve the urban delicacy, one local food expert estimated in 2009 there were 200 (if that were true, there are certainly far more now), and while the unpretentious entrée still keeps its street roots intact, with a cart on most worthwhile Tucson corners, there are also options at university area taco shops, restaurants next to national parks on the edge of town and downtown eateries. Someday – and it’s already on its way to happening – the Sonoran dog will be everywhere, but remember that it once found itself in Tucson.
