In the early 1990’s I got lost in Davie with a friend of mine and we were starving. We came across a Char-Hut and pulled into the drive-thru. We stuffed our faces and I remember in particular enjoying a chili dog that night. I never thought I would eat there again. I hadn’t even thought of Char-Hut in years. Last year I was driving in Sunrise and came across one. I couldn’t believe it. So, flash forward to a few days ago when again I’m in Sunrise and decide to go for it.
Would this place be the same Char-Hut I remember from years ago? I ordered their 1/3 Lb. Charburger (they asked if I wanted double meat, without hesitation I said yes, I love meat…and yes I’m trying to set myself up for a joke).
Their 32nd-anniversary celebration was in full bloom (who celebrates their 32nd?) so their Regular All-Beef Hot Dog was $1, I figured I’d give it the college try. The Charburger reminds me of the Miami Subs Burger, not that there’s anything wrong with that (but it’s nothing I’d make a drive for). The hot dog was really good (it’s National Deli) and I’m sure that has to do with the fact it’s all beef. In case you haven’t realized it by now, I can’t get seem to get enough of that.
Char-Hut is CLOSED
