Da Beef

Pin It Now!
If you happen to be in the middle of SOMA and find yourself somewhere between too lazy to go to the Mission for a burrito and too sober to eat a bacon wrapped hot dog, Da Beef makes for some good late night eats.  This cart is open till 3a on Friday and Saturdays and the food doesn't make you feel too guilty the next morning.
They are mostly known for their Chicago style hot dogs, but they do offer Italian sausages, veggie, and hot links as well.  Also, you can tops these with chili, cheese, and bacon bits.
It's sometimes called a walking taco, taco in a bag, or a frito boat. The frito pie, as its referred to at this cart, is a bag of fritos cut open and mixed with chili cheese, onions, tomatoes, and jalapenos, then eaten with a fork.  It's a delicious snack that is reminiscent of childhood memories as well as being one of the least messiest late night food options in the city. 
I can't vouch for its authenticity to a real Chicago dog since I never had a real Chicago dog, but it does have the sprinkle of celery salt and the neon green relish.  The dog comes sitting in a poppy seed bun and decorated with sliced tomatoes, jalapenos, and a crisp pickle spear.  The bun is super soft so it can be a little tricky to maneuver all the ingredients into your mouth without anything slipping out, but its worth it.
