Here's an excerpt from the lunch visit: 
 
Samantha: Good morning! We're on the second edition of GMT's Out to Lunch. We're at El Guero Canelo. Super excited about this one!
 
April: This is actually the home of the original Sonoran hot dog stand.
 
Al: And owner Daniel Contreras -- the cinnamon Mexican -- is going to show us how to make a Sonoran dog. Come on in.
 
Daniel: Everything started in 1986, 87 and 88 when I got married to my wife, Blanca. We started going to Nogales all the time, because I love hot dogs. I grew up in hot dogs with bacon on them.
 
Samantha: Thanks Al.
 
April: Yum.
 
Daniel: These are the hot dogs -- El Guero Canelo.
 
 
Al: Is this your exact recipe that you started with?
 
Daniel: Yes.
 
Al: Have you changed anything over the years?
 
Daniel: No.
 
Al: Not a thing?
 
Daniel: No, no. This is the same thing since day number one.
