Using a pillowy bun as a barrier, sausage is safely protected from environmental hazards such as open manholes and greasy-handed schoolchildren. Enjoy snugly shielded franks with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of gourmet sausage at Mad Dogs Café in Pacific Beach.

Effortlessly fusing the meaty sustenance of American fare with European breads, Mad Dogs Café's cooks craft a cosmopolitan menu of gourmet sausage. Each Mad dog is snugly wrapped in a house-baked baguette, and options such as the banger, traditional english sausage ($4.50), the spicy spanish chorizo ($4.50), or the extreme duck dog ($6.99) let guests sample the flavors of faraway lands without the dangers of riding a magic carpet across the Atlantic Ocean. Eaters can experiment with as many sauces as they like, adding curry, mustard, wasabi mayo, and house-made Mad sauce to cover up the blushing naked dogs. Sleepers on any schedule can take advantage of the all-day breakfast, rousing taste buds with a Mad breakfast sandwich stuffed with andouille sausage, bacon, or veggie sausage ($6.49), or a Mad bacon scrambler piled high with bacon, bell peppers, mushrooms, and potatoes ($8.49).

Coffee drinks and a selection of creamy gelatos complement the dogs, and the restaurant’s beachside location makes it convenient for a quick bite before a professional metal-detecting match.

Mad Dogs Café

To create a Mad Dog, cooks take a house-baked baguette bun and tuck one of 10 gourmet sausages inside, choosing from varieties including traditional english bangers, spicy spanish chorizo, and vegetarian-friendly italian soy sausage. Patrons can then smother their choice in sauces ranging from ketchup to curry to the house’s signature Mad sauce. Mad Dogs Café also offers Extreme Mad Dogs, created from couture game such as ostrich, alligator, and wandering decks of Uno cards.
