John Galardi started serving franks at the original Wienerschnitzel in 1961, and enterprising cooks in more than 350 franchise locations have gone on to doll up original, turkey, and beef dogs with an inventive array of toppings. Chili, kraut, pickles, pastrami, and other fixings leap onto handheld fare or become fresh characters in novels scrawled on napkins. Beneath chilly whorls of Tastee Freez ice cream, the eatery's menu shivers with soft-serve cones, sundaes, and shakes.

SUBA gets its East-meets-West feel from housing two master chefs under one roof: Executive chef David Santiago Sr., an expert in contemporary Spanish cuisine, brings experience from SUBA NYC and Boqueria in New York, while chef Shane Hollinger infuses sushi creations with flare from his native Hawaii. The menu features Spanish classics such as paella SUBA, a mingling of rice with fresh clams, mussels, shrimp, squid, chorizo, and more ($22), as well as reinventions of old classics such as the toro burger, mixed with chorizo and saucified with spicy mango salsa and habañero mayo ($9). Like a double major in biology and football, the signature sushi rolls combine unexpected ingredients, as exemplified by the light my fire roll's mixture of spicy tuna, cream cheese, tempura jalapeño, mango honey, and actual fire, as it comes flambé to the table ($14). Mark Richmond's Japanese tattoo-style art completes the eclectic ambience, making a visit to SUBA as tasty for the eyes as it is for the buds.
