20 Sep America’s 10 Best Hot Dogs
Located in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, Senate serves nearly 10 different tricked-out hot dogs. The trendy gastropub’s menu features a daily hot dog special named for celebrities such as gymnast Gabby Douglas and talk show host Kelly Ripa. In the two years that Senate has been open, chef and owner Daniel Wright has yet to repeat names or recipes. Order the wildly popular Croque Madame, a beef hot dog wrapped in black forest ham, smothered in béchamel and topped with a poached egg served on a brioche roll—if you can handle it.
