Best Gourmet Hot Dogs

Atomic Dawg; 2705 Coolidge Hwy., Berkley; 248-398-3294;

Staff Pick

Berkley has seen a number of new eateries crop up over the last couple of years, and our favorite of these is Atomic Dawg. Run by Chef Gary Brenner, formerly of CafĂ© 317 in Royal Oak, Atomic Dawg offers creatively topped hot dogs and Corridor Sausage Co. sausages in a converted house with quaint ’50s decor and friendly service to match. Our favorites are the BBQ Hog Dawg, split and filled with pulled pork and coleslaw, and the Laikon, a Corridor lamb-and-fig sausage with tomato, red onion and cucumber salad and tzatziki sauce. Wash them down with a classic milkshake or a root beer float. A great place to take kids, or just revel in the nostalgia of being a kid yourself.
