For the most creative hot dogs you're likely to find in Orange County, hunt down Dogzilla. While Dogzilla's menu gives you a choice of "typical weiners," being your classic plain hot dog and chili dog, the "not your typical weiner" category is what really stands out. Sample dogs like the namesake Dogzilla, an all beef dog with grilled onions, avocado, Japanese mayo, bacon bits, teriyaki sauce and furikake served on a King's Hawaiian bun, or the Yaki Dog, also serve on a Hawaiian bun topped with yakisoba noodles, okonomi sauce, ao nori and red ginger.
Ruby's Shake Shack has been around since the 1940's. It is a little hidden from the road, but the crowd of vehicles parked in front makes it easily visible. As the name implies, the shack is about milkshakes, and it's originally famous for the date shake, which is so thick it makes a straw practically useless. The best part of the Shake Shack, though, is their outdoor benches. Although rustic, these benches on the bluff top of a secluded area provide the best spot for sunset watching.
