It's that time of year again -- time for fireworks, red, white and blue, and barbecues.

One of the top foods Americans consume on the Fourth of July are hot dogs. In fact, about 150 million hot dogs are eaten in the U.S. on Independence Day alone!

Knowing this -- and similar to last year -- First Coast Foodies checked out the top three hot dog spots in Jacksonville based on your Yelp reviews. This year, one of the contenders was knocked off the list by a restaurant that has an Australian-inspired hot dog called "the Down Under."

Here are your top dogs:

1) The Hot Dog Party

Still ranking at No. 1 is The Hot Dog Party, which just celebrated its second-year anniversary this past May.

This mobile food cart is known for being 100 percent vegan-friendly, serving vegan hot dogs, vegan chili and vegan cheddar. Even so, non-vegans also love the food!

"The texture of the actual dog is a little different from your typical all meat variety but not anything you would really notice that much," Susan S. reviewed on Yelp. "The flavors of all the vegan items came together in a delicious way."

What continues to be one of their most popular hot dogs is the El Guapo, which consists of vegan chili, vegan cheddar, relish and Fritos. It costs $5.

You can catch this mobile food cart in Five Points, outside of Sun-Ray Cinema or Root Down on Friday and Saturday nights. Sometimes, they are also outside of Keg & Coin on Kings Street. Check their Instagram for their schedule.

Yelp: 5 out of 5 stars

Where: Usually outside of Sun-Ray Cinema, 1028 Park St, Jacksonville, FL 32204

When: Thursday to Saturday 8 p.m. to midnight (perfect for those late-night cravings!)

2) All American Hot Dogs and Sandwiches

All American Hot Dogs and Sandwiches continues to stand the test of time, taking the No. 2 spot once again.

Open since the 1960s, this family-owned and operated restaurant serves their hot dogs with the concept that they are "All American," meaning, you can get whatever toppings you want for cheap.

"Choose what you like ... if we have it, we'll do it," owner Nate Salameh said last year. "We've always had the concept of keeping the hot dog a very quality product and keep it at a cheap price."

All hot dogs cost $1.99 plus tax, including their most popular hot dog, the "All the Way" hot dog, made of homemade chili and coleslaw.

"The people, they tend to choose that hot dog because they like chili and coleslaw on a hot dog," Salameh said last year. "When they try that hot dog, they see how fantastic it is. [The ingredients] just go together. They just love that dog so much."

Most people top it with onions, but Salameh recommends it with ketchup and mustard.

3) Tasty Dog

Taking the No. 3 spot this year is the Tasty Dog on the Westside.

This restaurant started as a food cart back in 2006 by a retired Navy family.

"We have grown a lot being on the NAS Jax military base for the last 10 years, then catering all kinds of events all over town, all over Jacksonville," said Kristi-Ash Lee, daughter and owner/operator of the restaurant.

This year, the family expanded into their first restaurant location on Lane Avenue, which is believed to be what helped them knock down last year's bronze winner, the Hot Dog Spot.

They have more than 40 different toppings you can add to any hot dog, most of them made from scratch. They are best known for their gourmet-style hot dogs, some of which were inspired by the soldiers they met through the years that were stationed in Jacksonville from overseas.

"The Down Under is very special, very unique to our menu," Lee said. "Being on the military base, we get a lot of foreign exchange groups. One of the soldiers was from Australia ... he was so in love with our food, we asked them how they eat in Australia. He told us BBQ sauce, cheese, bacon and fried onions. We tried it, and we fell in love with it."

Their hot dogs start at $2.69 plus tax.
