“Anarchist hot dog stand” might sound like the name of your college roommate’s punk band, but it’s also an accurate description of Top Dog, and it’s awesome. This place has two locations around the Cal campus, and for the full experience, you want to try the South Side location on Durant at about 1am. It’s the type of hole-in-the-wall spot where you’ll get yelled at if you don’t order quickly enough, so if you’re overwhelmed by the long menu, just get the bockwurst (our favorite). There’s also no line allowed, so just join the crowd of people fighting their way to the front - we were serious about the anarchy thing.
