Pee Wee’s Famous Hot Dogs and Hamburgers has introduced many new tastes to Orange County, and now they bring an authentic Mexican Hot Dog to the menu.

Some say the Mexican Hot Dog originated in Tucson where it remains popular among the locals. Others claim the birthplace was in the northern Mexican state of Sonora. Some contend it's more likely a product of Mexico City.

Regardless of the ancestry, the delicacy begins with a Bolillo, a Mexican-style French Roll bread. The all-beef hot dog is wrapped with bacon for added flavor and cooked together which allows the juiciness of the bacon to saturate the sausage. Finally, a wide array of toppings finish off the Mexican Hot Dog in just about any way the customer has a craving for.

While some may choose the traditional hot dog condiments such as pickles, ketchup and relish, the adventurous (or those looking for a truly genuine experience) will select grilled or pickled jalapeños as a base and add crema (a Mexican crème fraiche). Pinto beans, salsa, pico de gallo, cilantro, and avocado are all authentic additions. With cheese such as Mexican Cotija or shredded yellow cheese, Pee Wee’s Mexican Hot Dog is one that will send your taste buds south of the border.

Come into Pee Wee’s Famous Hot Dogs to try out this new sensation, or enjoy any one of their other fan favorites that include Chicago-style, the Hawaiian Dog, the Polish Dog, and the Supreme Chili Dog.

In the mood for a hearty hamburger instead? Customers can choose between several types of patties, including 100 percent ground chuck, ground turkey, chicken breast or veggie burger. Pee Wee’s also offers private reserve fries, sweet potato tater tots and hand-made onion rings to accompany the entrée. Quench your thirst with a delicious ice-cold homemade lavender limeade or fresh lemonade.

Pee Wee’s Famous Hot Dogs and Hamburgers is located at 5942 E. Edinger Avenue in Huntington Beach. This is at the corner of Edinger and Springdale in the Marina Village complex. The telephone number is (714) 846-3100.
