The USDA's food pyramid traditionally puts bread on the bottom because some of the most savory suppers are best served on buns. Pile your pyramid with ketchup, mustard, and sausage with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet hot dogs and drinks at Lucky Dogs in the Marina District.
The wienermeisters at Lucky Dogs sling sausages influenced by flavors from around the world. Prime your stomach with a classic Lucky Dog, an 8-inch, all-beef frankfurter ($4), before moving onto specialty dogs such as a dirty south dog topped with chili and cole slaw ($6) or a Tokyo teaser dog slathered in teriyaki sauce, Japanese mayo, and seaweed ($4.75). Otherwise, keep it healthy with a meatless Lucky veggie dog ($4.50) buried alive under any or all of 11 different specialty toppings. Lonely dogs will enjoy the company of a loyal side of bacon-cheddar fries ($3.75) or an order of Lucky pups (bite-sized corn dogs; $4). Because a sausage craving, much like a toilet alligator, frequently strikes without warning, Lucky Dogs stays open late Friday and Saturday nights to keep bar-crawlers nourished on the long stumble home.
