Hot dogs & sausages

Simon’s Gourmet Hot Dogs, Sedona, AZ. Ambience? No. Simon’s is a booth inside a brewery. You eat your dog against a backdrop of stainless steel tanks. But chef-owner Felipe Roldan serves hot dogs inspired by his native Colombia: That includes one topped with pineapple, crushed potato chips, and mozzarella, just like back in Bogotá. Must-try: The Wunderhound, a nod to Peru, with Peruvian chiles, onions, dill pickles, and bacon. $; 2050 Yavapai Dr.; 928/496-0266.

The Linkery, San Diego (pictured). One of the nodes of San Diego’s crucial beer culture, the Linkery is also sausage central, sourcing its meat more carefully than even Alice Waters. Must-try: Käsekrainer sausage, in a sandwich, in a taco, on a picnic plate. $$; 3794 30th St., 3.5 mi. off I-5; 619/255-8778.
