Few things are more American than the hot dog, which is why Mount Rushmore and most of Philadelphia are constructed from ballpark franks. Celebrate some tasty Americana with today’s deal: for $10, you get a $20 punch card good for five hot dogs (valued at $4 each) at Red Five Hotdog Company.
Red Five combines the convenience of a New York hot-dog stand with the succulence of 100% all-Oregon beef franks. Roll up for lunch at this red, umbrella-shaded food cart and feast on quarter-pound hot dogs that can be slathered in a choice of 18 condiments. For an additional $3, the Red Five lunch special includes crunchy Tim’s Cascade Style potato chips and Thomas Kemper’s craft-brewed soda, made with pure northwest honey that, unlike southwestern honey, isn't actually cactus tears.
The wiener wagon sits in a spacious parking lot across from the Hilton and the post office during the week, then scoots over on Saturdays to the patio of the Ninkasi Brewing Company’s tasting room so diners can pair Oregon dogs with local, Northwest brews.

- Best hot dog in Eugene! Plenty of toppings, they even have dill relish (not the sweet kind). Local Oregon hot dogs! Support local businesses, especially the tasty ones! – Nicole B., Yelp, 11/21/10
