The Most Expensive Hot Dogs Ever Made

Hotdogs have been getting a lot of bad rap lately due to speculations about what they’re really made of. We know that most hotdogs are made up of a combination of different meats, but really, if you’re a true hot dog fan, you’re hardly thinking about what they’re really made of. All you care about is how good they are and what condiments you’ll be putting on for the perfect bite. Being one of the most affordable foods throughout the world, you might be surprised that there are some hotdogs out there that cost more than a good steak dish. We’re definitely not complaining, and from the looks of some of these hot dogs, we’ll definitely be willing to pay as well. Here are some of the most expensive hotdogs that have ever been made.

10. Rangers Ballpark – Arlington, Texas – $26

A $26 hot dog isn’t that much of a stretch, especially since this hotdog was two feet long. The three-pounder roll of meat was definitely enough to feed at least four hungry ballplayers or Rangers fan. It was even longer than it’s bun—the way hotdogs are supposed to be. This particular one that was made in the summer of 2013 was actually a chili cheese dog with jalapeños on top.

9. Dbacks – Dodgers Stadium – Sydney, Australia – $36

For $10 more, you can get almost two feet of American-style hotdogs in this Australian stadium. You can get the usual toppings if you’d like and even get a side of coleslaw to go with your hotdog. The hotdog stand was a thoughtful tribute from our friends down under, but the price tag wasn’t so thoughtful.

8. Serendipity 3 – New York, New York – $69

New Yorkers are all familiar with the whimsical Serendipity 3, and part of their fancy is their creativity. In 2010, they decided to use that creativity in order to create the world’s most expensive hotdog. Surely, they held that title for a while. With ingredients such as caramelized Vidalia onions, heirloom tomato ketchup, and black truffle Dijon mustard, you could expect to pay just a bit more than usual for their hotdogs.

7. Brockton Rox – Brockton, Massachusetts – $80

This place decided to beat Serendipity 3’s record just a year later, and they did. Brockton Rox produced the McCullen Dog, deep fried in truffle oil, coated with porcini dust, sprinkled with white truffle shavings, and topped off with some crème fraiche. It’s as fancy as any dog could be.

6. Dougiedog Hot Dogs – Vancouver, Canada – $100

What could you expect from a $100 hotdog? You could get a hotdog infused with 100-year old cognac—that’s what. It’s not just any cognac either, it’s Louis XIII, which costs about $2k per bottle. You’ll also get a hotdog made out of Kobe beef, fresh lobster toppings, and truffle-flavored olive oil for frying. It’s delicious,

5. UN Development Program – Stockholm, Sweden – $130

The UN wanted to make a statement, and they used an expensive hotdog to make it. The reality of the $130 price tag was harsh. There were no special things about the $130 hotdog. That hotdog just represented the amount that the billion of people in the poverty line would’ve spent to buy a hotdog each.

4. California Capital City Dawg – Sacramento, California – $145

Although this restaurant no longer exists, the memory of the one-time most expensive hot dog still lives. That was back in 2012, and the hotdog definitely sounded scrumptious. With 3.5 lbs of custom-made all-beef frank, this hotdog was grilled with maple-syrup bacon from New Hampshire, shallots, ground peppercorns, et cetera. It also had moose cheese all the way from Sweden, which was probably the main reason why the hotdog cost that much.

3. Tokyo Dog – Seattle, Washington – $169

This much for a hotdog is a crime, really, but we’re only on number 3. Tokyo Dog’s foot long was pretty fancy. It was a smoked cheese bratwurst that was covered in wagyu beef; it had shaved black truffles, foie gras, maitake mushrooms, caviar, teriyaki grilled onions, and Japanese mayo all on a brioche bun. It sounds absolutely delicious.

2. Hot Dog Mike’s – Little Rock, Arizona – $1,501

There were only 4 of these hotdogs sold ever, and creator Mike Juliano kept the hanging $1 off of each sale and gave the rest to the homeless—a total of $6,000. There really wasn’t anything too spectacular about these hotdogs either. They just happened to have a hearty helping of lobster and a good dusting of gold flakes on top. That’s all.

1. 230 Fifth – New York, New York – $2,300

Dry-aged wagyu beef, black truffles, white truffle butter, saffron, Vidalia onions caramelized in Dom Perignon, caviar, and gold leaf—these are just some of the ingredients that add up to make this hotdog cost a whopping $2,300 apiece. It sounds and looks delicious, and the proceeds from the sale of this hotdog was donated to the homeless. So far, this hotdog is the reigning record holder of most expensive hotdog ever made. We can’t even imagine what would be next.
