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.
