Hot Dog Lounge In Key West, Florida

Hot Dog Lounge - Keys

As we’re wandering aimlessly around Duval street, we come across the Hot Dog Lounge. It’s past midnight now and I figure, what the hell, a dog for the road. More than anything, I was drawn to the “Lounge” because of all the sauces. I was surprised to see Sriracha Hot Sauce (UPDATE: This was obviously before it was readily available pretty much everywhere) as one of the sauces he had available, My wife Marcela is a big lover of it. Me…not as much.

He told us he drives down to Target once a year to get it, which happens to be the only place Marcela and I have ever seen it. There is also a “Burger Dog”, which I didn’t try. A burger dog for those of you wondering, is ground beef shaped into hot dog form so it fits on a hot dog bun. The ones I’ve tried before leave a lot to be desired, so I skipped out on a possible stomach ache. The hot dog was good. I believe he told me it was Blogner’s, which I’ve never tried before. I was so excited to eat the dog I never took a picture of it.

Luckily it came out in one of the pics Marcela took while cradled ever so lovingly in my hand (above). It’s got some girth, yes I know….Please keep the comments to yourself.
