Top 10 Hot Dog Toppings According to JJ’s

JJ’s Red Hots released it’s third annual study on the most popular hot dog toppings just in time for the 4th of July holiday. American’s eat more hot dogs on July 4th than any other day of the year, consuming over 150 million. That’s enough to stretch from LA to DC over 5 times!

Here is JJ’s ranking of last years favorite toppings:

  1. Mustard
  2. Onions
  3. Chili
  4. Relish
  5. Cheese
  6. Bacon
  7. Sauerkraut
  8. Cole Slaw
  9. Ketchup
  10. Queso


Mustard, onions and chili remain at the top of the list for three years in a row, with Queso making the list for the first time.

JJ’s Founder was not to pleased to see ketchup make the list, which surprisingly fell at number 9.“While I have to live with ketchup for a year, most of this year’s list made sense from a historical point of view,” said Luther. “The surprises from last year – such as pimento cheese, salsa and caramelized onions — disappeared and most of the mainstream toppings settled back into place. Fortunately, we have featured more than 300 toppings since we opened so we have everything to attract old school connoisseurs and more than enough to please even the most demanding palate.”

To celebrate the 4th, their menu with feature an All-American Hot Dog, with Mustard, Relish and Onions, for $2 available at both the Dilworth and Ballantyne location. “We treat every day like July 4th at JJ’s,” said Brandy Newton, JJ’s director of marketing and brand development, “We couldn’t be more psyched about the future of Hot Dogs, especially ours.”
