Top Dog has been a Berkeley Icon for decades! The only thing that has changed is the prices have gone up over that time. Everything is still the same.
Great weiners. I used to love the original Top Dog, Then I branched out into the Kielbasa, Brockwurst, and finally the Louisianna Hot link! Yum!
Mustard, relish, and kraut! I think these still have the same condiment dispensers from long ago. Same articles and stickers on the wall, like "Malarky". Irreverance to read while you stuff your face with a tasty, hot dog!
A "Top" now costs $3. Soda a buck.
I used to stop here at night before I walked to Moffit Library to study for an exam late into the night, the only time I would have studied. Then I would go home, sleep, and wake up just before the test, and went strait to the test. No interaction anywhere before, because I would forget what I crammed the night before with each conscious interaction of my brain, draining my memory banks from what I filled them with the night before.
I was a terrible student with bad study habits, but I tested pretty well.

Top Dog is the king of Berkeley sausage venders. With great buns and meats imported from the East Coast, you'll definitely get an authentic and tasty experience. For those shying away from beef, the healthier chicken sausages are also really delicious. And of course, there is the vegan option.
So cheap and tasty, you may want to get two ;)Recommended for:Vegetarian
