Big Star serves killer tacos. But you must try the Sonoran Hot Dog once. The Sonoran is unique in this fine city. You come face to face with a crispy, bacon wrapped all beef jumbo hot dog, topped with pinto beans, lime mayo, mustard, onions and Big Star hot sauce all tucked into a Bolillo roll.
The Bolillo “bun” is a variation on the baguette traditionally made in Mexico. The dog is delicious. It’s thick and though there are a lot of toppings, especially sauces, the amount of beef balances everything out. But it is messy. In the end, you may be using a knife and fork – and that’s just fine by me. They drizzle their sauces over even the top of the bun so that every bite has a perfect blend of the three. It somehow works out really well. But this is by no means a portable dog. Dining in is a must. Whiskey anyone?
I’m hungry. Let’s eat!
