Meat is the star at Fat Daddy's Smokehouse, and they know exactly how to unleash anyone's inner carnivore byÂingeniously taking bacon and weaving that into their hefty and meaty burgers and nachos. Think rich cheese sauce. Think huge, succulent patties. Think crisp, juicy bacon strips.

At Lazy Bastard, diet is a mere four-letter word, and bacon comes in heaps. The place is inspired by New York City pubs, and the food takes after street carts that serve to-go snacks for the lazy eater.

Otherwise, the hotdogs are wrapped in bacon, deep-fried, and wonderfully embraced by buttery potato rolls.
