With last month’s surprising news that Hot Diggity closed on South Street and the most recent bummer about Moe’s Hot Dog House at Grays Ferry and Washington Avenue closing, we got to thinking about where else you can get a good hot dog in Philadelphia. Yes, you can get a hot dog at just about every street vendor, but we were thinking about hot dogs a step above.
Here is our list of some of the top hot dogs in Philadelphia.
They’re not normally the first thing I think of when I think of dinner on a snowy night, but after seeing these, I might change my mind: Beer-battered onion rings with “Samurai Sauce” made with mayo, sambal and Sriracha. They’re on special tonight at Alla Spina, so get on over there if you’re interested.

On New Year’s Eve Alla Spina is transforming itself into “Club Vetri.” There will be a DJ, dancing, a photo booth and as importantly, food stations featuring dishes from all of the Vetri Family restaurants (Vetri, Amis, Osteria, Pizzeria Vetri, Lo Spiedo and of course Alla Spina). Tickets start at $120 and rise as we get closer to New Year’s Eve.
