Top Dog-style Hot Dog in L.A.?

I'm a recent transplant from Northern Cal to down south, and I'm jonesing for a Top Dog from Berkeley.

I've tried Pink's, which doesn't seem to do the same thing.

A Top Dog's main distinction for me is that the dogs are grilled (instead of boiled/steamed), and are served on a grilled substantial (seeded) bun. You can add your own cold chopped onions, sourkraut, spicy russian mustard, etc.

They offer something like 20 different types of dogs, including "Lemon Chicken", Brautwerst, New York Style, etc...

No Chili, no steam. Anything like this down here? Oh yeah, I always used to chase down a pair of top dogs with a tall lemonade.
