Awesome job catering, I've always loved them as a late night meal but it was just as good when catered.

This place is definitely my all time favorite hot dog place. The lemon chicken and hot link is to die for.

Good for students, they open late! Cheap food on the go will take you far on finals week. Try their chicken apple and hot links, they are the best. If you want to have your own BBQ, they sell the links by the dozen.

Top Dog's are a staple in the Berkeley diet. The people who work there are always a bit odd, but friendly. Top dog is way better than any street hot dog, period. It must be the grilling.

It's always fun to read all the faded weird libertarian propaganda and bumper stickers on the wall while you wait.

It's uber-tiny in there, so when it's crowded you really have to fight your way to the counter.

Mmmmm Chicken Apple Sausage.

When I visited Berkeley, I had to go to the hyped up hotdog joint... I ordered the smoked chicken apple dog, and it was just delish! And it was cheap too and the wait was relatively short (a huge difference from waiting hours for Pink's)... I'm going back up North this weekend, and this place is going to be the first place I'm visiting!

Pros: delicious dogs, low prices, low fuss

Cons: parking?

This place has the best hot dog in Berkeley. It has even variety of food you can eat. The best thing is everything they sell taste really good and the price are not expensive at all. They also open till late night so anybody got late craving, they can always come here and have a nice good food.

A Berkeley land mark, Top Dog is more than just a late-night (open til 3am) hot dog stand. With a tasty selection of sausages & dogs with all the fixings, its served up by a grillsman (or grillswoman) that can engage the customer, sometimes in debate of the latest political goings-ons, sometimes about what happens in the Star Trek re-run on the TV by the counter.

Reminding patrons of Berkeleys reputation as a hotbed of dissent and critique, the restaurants walls are papered with cartoons and quips to inspire patrons to the importance of the role of an individual citizen in society. More than just a hot dog, Top Dog is a place I go to sate my mind as well as sate my stomach.

PROS: Sausage selection, topping variety
CONS:

If you are ever in Berkeley, it is a known fact that you have to stop by at Top Dog and try one of their hot dogs. They have a wide range of hot dogs from Chicken Apple, all beef traditional "Top Dog", and even a vegetarian. Trust me just go there and try one.

This place got me by during my four years at Cal. What could I have done at 1am while getting writer's block without you Top Dog?

Within the tiny confines of the Durant Ave. Top Dog, observe the etiquette for ordering. Don't spend a lot of time perusing and questioning the menu, pick a dog and be ready to request it with authority. When the man behind the counter points at you, you're on. "Bock and a hot" means you'll have a German bockwurst and a Louisiana hot link. The man tending the grill remembers your order, requests the appropriate money from you when he has a minute, and shouts out your order when it's ready. Load up your dog with plenty of spicy mustard and sauerkraut.

Must have been late '99, when I took a friend from Los Angeles here. We ordered our dogs, perused the libertarian propeganda, and then I asked the dude behind the counter how long he'd been part of this fine establishment. He shrugged between flipping weiners and said, "Some time back in the early '80s," the exact date clearly too far gone for memory.

"Holy smokes," my friend said. "You must like it."

He looked at her and smiled. "I just love making people happy," he said.

Every time I go back to Top Dog, I still see the same guy, and yes, he's still making people happy.
