The Tucson joint is known for its spin on the classic dog, which includes a bacon-wrapped hot dog topped with pinto beans, jalapeño sauce, tomatoes, onions, mustard and mayo.

The folks at El Guero Canelo aren’t new at this, either; The restaurant has been serving families in Tucson since Daniel Conteras opened the joint in 1993. Since then, Conteras has gone on to open up three more locations and a meat market in Tucson before opening a Phoenix location this September.

So whenever you’re down in the Dirty T or up in Phoenix, go on and check out the place.

You never know what you’re missing!

Good choice, @yasminamina87!
