According to the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council (yes, this is a real council), over 150 million hot dogs are consumed on Independence Day. So, it seems safe to assume that you might be jonesing for this all-American treat to celebrate the holiday*.

Get your hands on a steamy wienie this month (and all throughout the year) at one of these top-rated Reno/Sparks locations.

Sinbad’s Hot Dogs
ranked #2 in Nevada for hot dog restaurants by Google
Although Sinbad’s was officially established in California, they relocated to Sparks in 1979 where their steamed dogs quickly became (and have stayed) a local favorite. In 2006, Kristine Maioli purchased this home of the ‘Steamin’ Wienie’ and carried on the tradition of steamed all beef hot dogs with natural casings that snap with every bite.

Sinbad’s is located at 418 N McCarran Blvd, Sparks, NV 89431 and open Tuesday – Friday: 10:30 am – 6:30 pm.

Sinbad’s was a participant in the inaugural Sparks Food & Drink Week that took place June 8-15, 2022.
