Seasoning – the lack thereof – is not a problem at this Bay View bar with laid-back communal table seating and WWE wrestling on the TV. Sausage is the raison d’être of Vanguard, with options numbering close to 30. Hot dogs are a fairly minor, but not overlooked, player. The “simple” all-beef dog is infused with smoked paprika. Add the Vanguard hot kraut or giardiniera (a delicious, tangy and spicy Italian relish), but not both. Another option – and it’s a good one – is to order the chili cheese dog, smothered in Cheez Whiz, green onion, jalapeños and beef chili. $5-$7.
