2700 boul Laurier, Québec, QC G1V 2L8

A popular fast food-style restaurant in Quebec City, Chez Ashton has some unique varieties of hot dogs on their menu.

Bar L'Inox

655, Grande Allée E, Québec, QC G1R 2K4

This hot dog is not one to share with the kids. Although this place is one you might not consider a typical spot to find a standout hot dog, they elevate this common sandwich to new heights. Bar L'Inox, well known for their pub grub, serves up a large sausage-style wiener, mild or hot, on a baguette. Pair it with your choice of mustard and an ice cold beer for a relaxing and filling bite.

Pat Retro

1983, rue de Bergerville, Québec, QC G1S 1J7

Feel like taking a step back in time? Pat Retro's '50s style diner has the look and feel of an authentic diner from days gone by. The fun atmosphere is only half the reason to stop in, though – the menu offers seven different hot dogs to choose from. Try the Quebec favourite: Hot dog du Lac, featuring mayo, mustard, thinly sliced coleslaw, cheese and, if you want the full experience, crispy fries.

Auberge Saint-Antoine
