Alex's Take

"There are some great, old school places in Oakland

There's a small local chain of hot dog places called Top Dog. I'll always be nostalgic for Top Dog no matter what. When I go in, it's like, 'Ahhhh, yes! You're still here!'

It started in Berkeley in the 1960s and it's fantastic. Top Dog just makes me happy. I hope it never goes away."
