I love hot dogs. Give me hot dogs over burgers any day. That being said there are LOTS of places in Birmingham to satiate your hot dog hunger. I prefer dining at this Gus's location.

Not as good as it used to be, but maybe I'm just getting old. Still the best hotdog in Birmingham any way you like it and I like it with the Kraut, onions and sauce; best hot dog atmosphere. Stand and eat.
