GETTING THE DIRT

Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs in Daylight

Bacon-wrapped hot dogs: maybe sometimes they happen late at night on a sidewalk outside some bar. And now maybe sometimes they’ll happen at lunch inside Dirt Dog, which just opened on Figueroa. Your chair makes it more respectable, sort of.

Now open, Dirt Dog, 2528 S Figueroa St, Downtown, 213-749-1813
