This tiny strip-mall snack bar didn’t get our attention for the riot of colors on its exterior — though the orange-and-yellow storefront and fedora-wearing mango mascot are definitely eye-catching — but rather for the elusive Sonoran hot dog served within. This perro caliente is as intimidating as it is delicious, with a bacon-wrapped dog, a mountain of Mexican toppings and a side of salsa verde hot enough to melt your molars. Don't even try to pick this one up with your hands, or you'll be wearing dinner home on your shirt. Not a hot dog person? The sweets at Los Mangos — ice cream, sundae cups filled to the brim with mango slices topped with chile powder, and sandías locas (whole watermelons hollowed out and stuffed with mango, tamarind straws, kiwi slices and whole strawberries) — are just as colorful as the street outside.
