ISO Sonoran Style Hot Dogs in the Bay Area

I heard this NPR story about Sonoran Hot Dogs (link below). Seems about 20 years ago the hot dog crossed the border and was given a Mexican twist in Hermasillo. Since then the Sonoran Hot Dog crossed the border and is available in Tuscon & Phoenix. Anyone seen these around here? I suspect Redwood City, but have not seen them. I've found enough bacon wrapped hot dogs around here, but would like to find the authentic Sonoran dog if it exists.

From Wikipedia:
"The Sonoran hot dog, found in Tucson, Metro Phoenix, and in neighboring Sonora, Mexico, is a hot dog grilled in a processor or on a griddle, wrapped in Mesquite-smoked bacon, topped with freshly-chopped tomatoes, onions, shredded yellow or cotijo cheese, tomatillo salsa or red chili sauce, pinto beans, mayonnaise, ketchup and/or mustard, and served on bread. Often served with a fresh-roasted chili."
