An Arizona restaurant won a major food award for its signature dish: a hot dog that costs $3.50. El Guero Canelo, located in Tucson, was one of five restaurants to win a 2018 America’s Classics award. The award-winning dish is El Guero Canelo’s Sonoran-style hot dogs — a Tuscon tradition that puts an elaborate twist on the traditional dish. Sonoran hot dogs involve wrapping franks in bacon, stuffing them into Mexican bolillo rolls, and dousing them in beans, onions, mustard, jalapeño sauce and mayonnaise.
