Hot Dog, $145.49
On May 31, 2012, Sacramento's Capitol Dawg made its way into the pages of the Guinness Book of World Records with its California Capitol City Dawg. Served on a foccacia roll, the world's most expensive hot dog is an 18-inch beef frank topped with Swedish moose cheese, Italian white truffle butter, French mustard, garlic-herb mayonnaise, smoked maple bacon from New Hampshire and local balsamic vinaigrette. In 2011, the restaurant was named the city's best spot for cheap eats.
