We've seen our fair share of fancified hot dogs in this city, and frankly a lot of them feature overwrought, baroque toppings with underwhelming sausages. But a few stand apart as well thought-out creations that do right by the noble tubesteak. Which dogs (and dog-like objects) live up to the hype (and are worth the extra cash)? We rounded up some of our favorites.

Dogmatic, right off Union Square, draws an impressive lunch crowd from nearby offices. Go early or go late, but try to avoid the noon-1pm hou,r where lines can go out the door. While Dogmatic is best known for a their variety of sausage dogs inserted into toasted rolls by Pain d'Avignon, most of which are indeed unique and quite good, many regulars make a habit of composing a meal from their side dishes. And these side dishes deserve more recognition. Four sides for $3.25 each, and fries for $2.95.
While technically not a hot dog, Dogmatic's locally sourced sausages—which are jammed into freshly baked mini baguettes with gourmet sauces like horseradish mustard, mint yogurt, and a truffle gruyere sauce—are a delicious alternative to the same old New York City street food.
