Imagine: a bacon-wrapped hot dog lovingly smothered in mayo, hot sauce, grilled onions, chili, cheese sauce, pastrami, jalapenos, and shredded cheddar. 

When we think of “hot dogs” today versus how we used to think of them, we realize that the two depictions are very unique from one another. If you are a food-oriented individual, you know the days of calling a simple link-and-bun with a ketchup/mustard combo a “hot dog” have all but disappeared.

Because, you know what a real hot dog is, and you know that a real hot dog has more than just some saucy red and yellow squiggles—a real hot dog is put to work. And by work, we mean the works.

Imagine: a bacon-wrapped dog topped with the essential ketchup and mustard, then lovingly smothered in mayo, hot sauce, grilled onions, chili, cheese sauce, pastrami, jalapenos, and shredded cheddar. It’s not a fantasy, folks, it is REAL, and it is called the “Cardiac Arrest” by its creators, Dragon Dogs!
