Out of sheer curiosity, I recently Ctrl-F-ed ‘hot dog’ in my Slack DMs with SF Editor Lani Conway, and came up with 23 results. I guess we were really craving hot dogs - maybe because Summer 2020 was long and involved considerably fewer baseball games and barbecues than usual. So it felt like some higher power had hacked our Slack conversations when Quik Dog opened up in the Mission. The new casual, takeout-friendly concept from the Trick Dog team nails every element that makes a hot dog great: slightly-toasted bun, juicy, perfectly cooked meat (chuck and brisket, in the case of the titular Quik Dog), and excellent toppings. I especially loved the Mission Dog, topped with bacon, sauteed onion, and jalapeño spread. And while you should definitely order a hot dog when you’re there (if you’ve made it this far, you must be craving one by now), don’t pass on the chicken nuggets: crispy little pieces of thigh meat, which are even better doused in a side of Quik Dog’s sweet, house-made honey mustard.
