2. Donnie Vegas

Copy Link
1203 NE Alberta St
Portland, OR 97211

Donnie Vegas is a charmer, with a solid selection of $5 creative dogs, like the Seattle Dog with cream cheese, caramelized onion, and scallion, and a $3 plain dog. Unless you choose the vegan dog, you'll receive 100% Washington Angus beef handled by two Ned Ludd alums and get to eat it in the sweet booths of Donnie's dead-end-desert-diner setting, replete with paintings of Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali.

5. OP Wurst

Copy Link
126 SW 2nd Ave
Portland, OR 97204

Olympia Provision's original OP Wurst is found inside Pine Street Market, and it now has an Oregon City location inside a brewery and a legit, stand-alone brick and mortar on SE Division. The upscale artisan hot dogs have enough snap to give you whiplash — and if you're not familiar with the Reuben hot dog, the $12 price could, too — but OP Wurst also makes a classic frankfurter for $6.50. The best item on the menu could easily be the messy and decadent Frito Pie Dog.

Served during early and late happy hours only, chef Kelly Myers’ Sonoran dog is likely one of the city’s sexiest — and messiest. But who cares? That’s what knives are forks are for. What you get is a long list of ingredients (salsa verde, guacamole, refried beans, Oaxacan cream, cotija, bacon, refried beans, and jalapeno escabeche) piled atop a plump Nathan’s frank hugged by a grilled Portland French bun.
