In New York, you can find a $14 hot dog called The Ditch Dog in Manhattan's Greenwich Village. The hot dog is encased in a potato bun and topped with Gruyere/American/Parmesan mac 'n cheese.


First class dog ---Looking to splurge on your hotdog purchase,  Serendipity 3 on Manhattan's Upper East Side goes for $69. The “haute” dog is a 12-inch-long pure beef frankfurter grilled in white truffle oil. It's then served on a salted pretzel bun from Germany and coated with white truffle butter. The condiments are extravagant and include duck fois gras, black truffles, caramelized Vidalia onions, heirloom tomato ketchup and Dijon mustard with more black truffles.
