Danger Dog > Wiki


Danger dog is the slang term for a type of hot dog first sold by street vendors in Tijuana, Mexico and is also known as a "Tijuana bacon dog" or a "dog dog." A danger dog is a hot dog wrapped in a piece of bacon, fried in oil and served on a bun with grilled onions and chili sauce.

The term "danger dog" originates from this form of hot dog's reputation as being of cheap quality (or presumed low quality, as it is usually sold by unlicensed street vendors). The danger dog has recently turned up north of the border and is now being sold by Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City street vendors.

On the east coast of the United States, a variation has appeared with the bacon-wrapped hot dog being deep-fried and called a "Jersey breakfast dog". There is a tradition in New Jersey of serving hot dogs that have been deep-fried in boiling oil until they rip apart ("rippers") or just blister lightly (an "in and outer"). The Jersey dog is usually served atop fried or scrambled eggs.

There's nothing quite like a heart attack in a bun. Especially when there are jalapenos on top.

so bad, yet soooooo good. I love these things. Kind of like Krispy Kreme donuts... you can eat them 3 at a time.

If by danger, you mean awesome, then yes. Nothing like a bacon wrapped hot dog. Dangerously awesome. Zing!
