Despite the recent craze for burgers topped with everything from pineapple to fried eggs to parmesan crisps, New York is really a hot dog town, and Brooklyn is no exception to that rule. Though you’ll find fewer carts selling classic dirty water dogs here than in Manhattan, rest assured, there are plenty of classic wieners to be found in the borough, alongside some upstarts.

Bark (Park Slope)
Bark serves beef and pork franks (all-beef available on request) that are made to order in upstate New York. They’re spicy, snappy, and you can order them with all manner of toppings from sauerkraut to chili cheese. Make sure to get an order, or two, of cheddar fries on the side.
