Hot Dog Alley - Restaurant Guatemala City - Guatemala

Just down the road from the Centro Cultural de España and the Guatemalan stock exchange is Hot Dog Alley, a great budget place in an area of mid-range restaurants. What is actually a group of streets full of hot dog cafés gets super busy between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. when the hungry office crowds descend.


At Shucos El Chino on Via 8 #328 Alfredo serves up longaniza, chorizo, beef, bacon and salami hot sandwiches with salad for $1, a double dog for $1.30 or a super grande with five meats for $2.50. They also have great homemade cilantro and hot sauces. The service is quick so it’s great for a fast lunch or a quick snack before hitting the bars nearby. Beers and soft drinks available. Be aware that the bathroom is very basic. Open midday to about 7 p.m.
