It's National Hot Dog Day 2013! On July 23, foodies across the country will be enjoying the summer favorite. To help people find the perfect hot dog, Urbanspoon, a mobile restaurant discovery application and reservation management system, released their list of the Top 40 Fantastic Franks restaurants list for 2013.

Urbanspoon's list includes 40 of the most popular hot dog restaurants in the United States. The restaurants, which have wild and classic dog dogs, are located in 31 cities across the country.

The list was determined based on the restaurants with the most positive reviews from professional food critics, bloggers, and the Urbanspoon community of diners. It also features top choices from the editorial staff.

Then there are the classics like Gray's Papaya in New York City and Pink's Hot Dogs in Los Angeles.
