We couldn’t really think of a more perfect, simple, and affordable dog in town. Lucky for Vancouverites, the Costco downtown lets you roll in and eat from its cafeteria whether you have a membership or not. It’s worth the $1.50, and that alone makes it a top contender for the best hot dog in Vancouver.

Where do you even start with What’s Up? Their one of the best places for hotdogs in the city. The mouth-watering selection of different dogs on offer here is above and beyond every other shop in the Lower Mainland. Their vegan wing night is also stellar but try the hot dogs first.

This spot has a great selection of hot dogs. Patrons can choose from a Kosher Style Hot Dog, Cheese Dog, Bacon Dog, and Bacon Cheese Dog. It might be hard to opt for a hot dog over their signature burger, but it’s worth trying at least once.

What began as the little-cart-that-could outside the Sutton Place Hotel, has turned into a dynasty of Vancouver stops. The Japanese-flavours-meets-tube-of-meat spot that is an absolute must-try for any true hotdog lover.

Nat Bailey Stadium (aka the home of the Vancouver Canadians) is an awesome place to enjoy a great hotdog. One of the specialties of the stadium is the foot-long hotdog that brings you the exact same taste as the normal-sized one, just at an actual arm’s length.
