Top Dog is a local chain of hot dog and sausage restaurants that's been around since 1966. There are three restaurants in Oakland and Berkeley. Three former locations in Oakland have closed over the years.

Their menu includes kosher all-beef hot dogs, as well as bockwurst, bratwurst, kielbasa, calabrese, several chicken and turkey sausage varieties, and one veggie dog ("The Wienie").
