Ancestors of the people of Frankfurt, Germany, and Vienna, Austria, may lay claim to inventing the hot dog. But the best hot dogs in Charlotte are proof that the Queen City is perfecting the art. Hot dogs may be the traditional treat at a baseball game, but here in Charlotte, they make for a good lunch or dinner, too. – Jeff Hawkins

Green’s Lunch

309 W. 4th St.
Charlotte, N.C. 28202
(704) 332-1786
www.greenslunch.com

This small brick restaurant packs a big taste. A lunch-time institution, Green’s does not offer a lot of flash or ambiance, but the food quality is high. In fact, many of the “fancy” hot dogs other establishments have on their menus can be trumped by the “classic” hot dogs served by Green’s. Hours: Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Matt’s Chicago Dog

The Chicago-dog style is among the best hot dogs in Charlotte, too, at Matt’s Chicago Dog. And you don’t have to be a Cubs fan to appreciate the Vienna Beef hot dogs that Matt’s Chicago Dog serves. One bite, and it’s a home run. Hours: Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
