Welcome to Puerto Peñasco. We know it is hot and muggy but let’s check out a couple of places you must go to when you are here. You need to treat yourself to a Piña Colada or try some of the best Sonoran Hot Dogs anywhere.
Our first stop will be to Chon’s Sonoran Style Hot Dogs on Constitution, across from the ABC Bus Line. He has been serving up these dogs for as long as I can remember. When I arrived today his son was working the stand and I asked if his papa was OK and he said “Day Off”. There were several people eating the dogs there as well as people waiting in line for dogs to go. When I spoke with the papa one day, I asked him how many dogs he sold a day and said it was somewhere between 200 and 300. WOW. He has a simple cart that he tows everyday and this is where he cooks the dogs on a flat top after they have been wrapped in thin bacon. How could this not be good? Bacon on anything is good. Then he grills onions and whole jalapenos for your enjoyment. The cart has a warming bin for the tender buns. Now he prepares your order by putting the crispy dog on the bun and starts to build from there with either the grilled onions or chopped raw ones, pickles, peppers and more. There are several things to add next such as mayo, ketchup, mustard, a thin avocado sauce and you are good to go. If you want , just ask for the Jalapeno on the side. When my husband and I go, we have 2 dogs each and a small Coke Cola. Nothing better than a REAL Mexican Coke Cola to top of your lunch and all of this will not break your wallet.
Next stop is on the corner of Calle 13 and Plutarco Elias Calle. Here you will find Lupe Castro making those yummy Piña Coladas served in a fresh Pineapple, complete with slices of fresh Pineapple on the side, a little umbrella and a cherry. This goes on the top of the fresh mixture of cream of coconut milk and pineapple juice which has been blended. Lupe has been on this corner for over 10 years come spring, summer, winter or fall. He says he sells on average of 25-30 of these delightfully refreshing drinks a day. He blends everything up in front of you and when he made ours he also had enough to gives us 2 10 oz. cups in addition. Lupe has a great smile and every time we pass him he always waves and smiles, so how could we not stop. Two drinks were only 180 pesos and well worth it. This corner is very busy this time of the year, as everyone is wanting to rent those quads and rhinos. Perhaps this would be a great stop after you have been out on the quads and rhinos in the heat to cool off. Lupe is also available for private parties.
I hope you will support these 2 gentleman as they are so hard working and I know they appreciate our business.
