JFK's famous admission, "I am a Berliner," came as a surprise to many people who thought he seemed more like a frankfurter or a polish sausage. Resemble your regional red hot with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of specialty hot dogs and drinks at America's Top Dog.
Slow-grilled all-beef hot dogs, house-made condiments, and fresh baked buns abound at this hot-dog haven tucked into the North Hills Shopping Center. Top Dog's four-page menu exhibits the restaurant's enthusiasm for naturally-encased meats organized according to flavorful regions of America. Laud local fare by biting into the Georgia Dog ($4.95), a spicy jumbo red hot topped with chow chow, spicy chili, house-made pimento cheese, and cole slaw. Top Dog's southern-style onion rings with Cajun dipping sauce ($3.50) make palate pals with strangers' sausages, such as the NY Deli Dog wrapped in swiss, horseradish mustard, sauerkraut, and hot pastrami ($6.75), or the Cubs Dog topped with mustard, relish, onion, cucumber sport peppers, tomato, pickle, and celery salt ($3.75). Creative customers can cover up naked dogs ($2.65–$4.50) with bakery-style bolillo buns and their choice of more than 40 different toppings, sheltering them from confusion caused by lookalike links and the baton-snatching hands of passing relay racers.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Food and More blog and Atlanta Food Critic Blog reviewed America's Top Dog, and it was featured in on Examiner; the Journal-Constitution also named America's Top Dog one of Atlanta's best hot dogs in their Best of the Big A. Yelpers give it a four star average, and 90% of Urbanspooners like it.
