Great thread idea .

The restaurant by the beach in Dania Beach makes a Chicago-style dog.

The key to the "style" of dog is the dog itself, not the toppings.
I would much rather have a totally bare with mustard Vienna (Chicago) or Nathans (New York) than a 'processed meat product' dog with all the trimmings.

Happiness is a well done Chicago Dog.

For those in St. Augustine, there is a FANTASTIC dog place in Hazels Hot Dogs.
As a Chicago reverse transplant (from Florida to Chicago) who views my dogs much like a clergyman views his scripture, I can say with full confidence that Hazels could compete anywhere.
Their home made fries are great, too.

If anyones flying through St. Aug, they're right on US1 before you hit the SR16 intersection.
To dog devotees coming I95, it's only a 6 mile diversion off the interstate- I95 to the 318 exit, head east on SR16 to the US1/312 intersection. Make a right south on US1, within a few blocks, Hazels Hot Dogs will be on US1 on your left hand side.
Worth it.

I like Doc's Dairy Bar in Delray Beach. Great old time dog place. Right on Atlantic Ave.

You know what is funny about hot dogs is, some of the cheaper dogs are the best. I used to have a steamer and steamed dogs in beer and my customers loved them and I sold a couple hundred dogs a day, I was taking in like $300.00 a day just on hot-dogs. Then I thought I would go with something special and I switched to the Vienna all meat dogs.

I got the fancy seeded buns the whole deal. The customers hated them and in two weeks the sales were down to almost nothing. What I learned was the dogs with the pork and cereal blend that plump up and are real juicy are the best. People will gobble them down like they are going out of style.

Arbetter's hot dogs in Miami on Bird rd and 87th ave are pretty popular but they're the total opposite of a Nathan's dog as they don't have the snap when you bite into them.I don't dislike them but I don't love them and I probably still go there more for their cheese fries rather than their hot dogs.

Start in New Jersey then Fed Ex to Fla. They may have started as New Jersey dawgs, but they are now Florida Dogs

I likem better when walking along in NYC. However I do have a bunch fedexed in once or twice a year like you see above. So in NYC that would be "dirty dogs" and they're boiled. I like mine with some mustard but maybe 3 dogs, 2 w/mustard and another with ketchup. I like em the same way at home although sometimes I'll put a few on the grill. We make a great potato salad. Yum!

Now Pizza's are another story. I knew a guy in South Jersey who made the greatest pizza's. Super thin dough so it was necessary to fold the slice....then when you took a bite the oil would sometimes run down your hand. Man were they great pizza pies. He only charged 5 bucks for a large pie. This was about 18 years ago and I was working for a big company in Dallas. I had 5 pizza's come in via Fed Ex for a meeting we were having. Fed ex cost 25 bucks so the whole deal was 50 dollars, 5 large super excellent jersey pizza pies....in Dallas Texas. The fellow is no longer in business or else I'd definitely be having pizza like that flown in. Pizza around here is, er, ................unfortunate. That's a good word for it.

There's one place, on Peachtree that's good but not hardly what I described above. Then another place in the publix mall on veterans. Good sauce and they advertise a thin pizza but I think that deep down inside they REALLY think that thin means thick.

None of the others are even worth mentioning really.

Don't even get me started critiquing Asian restarants around these parts.

I had never heard of a Slaw Dog until I stopped at a family run ice cream/hot dog place in New Smyrna Beach, they are wonderful.

Personally, I only eat Hebrew National or Nathans hot dogs, what I put on them depends on my mood. Sometimes I like a little ***** and mustard, sometimes just the ketchup, mustard and mayo.

I prefer mine grilled rather then boiled.
