Despite their simplicity, hot dogs are extremely versatile due to their unlimited toppings potential and status as the only food that can be legally eaten right- or left-handed. Taste the versatility of ingenuity with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of hot dogs at The Infield in Sherman Oaks.
The Infield grinds out an extensive selection of creatively garnished hot dogs alongside an assortment of sausages and classic sides. Carrying a healthy lineup of high-quality brands including Sabrett, Vienna, Hebrew National, and more, this cash-only establishment swings for the fences with signature hot dogs. Timid gourmands find simple snacking in the all-beef Infield classic ($3), and loftier appetites fill up on the chili-cheese Frito dog ($5) or the Chavez Ravine sandwich, filled with two opposite-minded franks cohabitating in one bun and seasoned with delicious hijinks ($5.50). Cross-country transplants find edible nostalgia in the Brooklyn pastrami dog with its layers of pastrami, sauerkraut, and swiss cheese ($6.50) or the Cajun-spiced Louisiana hot link ($5). Bulk up meals with a side of fries ($2) or coleslaw ($3) before completing the satiation cycle with a deep-fried Twinkie dog ($6) or other sweet weenie.
The Infield sports an array of major-league memorabilia and authentic bleacher seating from major-league stadiums where one can sit in the shaded patio to yell at imaginary umpires directing traffic. This high-quality sausage stand also received notoriety when Charlie Sheen created the Charlie Dog with Tiger Blood, the Infield's standard Chicago dog with spicy sriracha to complement the onions, tomatoes, peppers, and pickle spear it normally sports.
