Napa (Oxbow Market) - Five Dot Ranch's hot dogs don't bark but they snap

I enjoyed my dinner frank tonight from Five Dot Ranch. It has a nice snappy casing and a good, juicy classic hot dog taste.

The only minus is they are what they say they are ... dinner franks ... the size of a bratwurst and more suitable to be served for dinner rather than on a bun ... unless you get the size bun that will hold a bratwurst. I hope in the future they will make some skinny hot dogs that would fit in a conventional bun because these would be great.

I still enjoyed the frank very much with my Alexander Valley saurkraut and pickles from Whole Foods. The Five Dot Ranch frank was WAY better than the Whole Foods beef frank I bought last time. Actually, I can't think of another local hot dog that I like more.

They have a few other sausages. It is mainly a butcher counter selling cuts of beef. Since I rarely buy beef, can't comment on that.

They had some interesting brands of bottled steak sauces and marinades. Also they were selling some sort of wine-soaked planks for cooking meat.
