These are the Top 10 Hot Dogs in Miami or maybe the Best 10 Hot Dogs in Miami.

It depends on the word you prefer to use.

One of my pet peeves is when someone says something like, Miami has no good insert word here.

The never-ending war against the negative nancies is an uphill battle, but all I can try to do is educate those who are willing to listen.


There are plenty of tasty cylindrical meats in the 305.

All you have to do is look or use my list!

  1. Always an enjoyable read. Surprisingly (or maybe not LOL), I have had a lot of these.

    Arbetter’s-I don’t care for the hotdog itself. Meat is too mild/bland/soft, tastes like it’s made of turkey.
    Burger Fi-Never cared for the burnt. Like ketchup, it’s not right. Browned in butter is awesome, burnt is bad.
    Fritas Domino-I know it’s sacrilegious but I’m not a frita fan. Too greasy. You can have too much of a good thing.
    Monster-I have not tried, but I don’t like bacon or mozzarella or a toasted bun.
    Pepitos-Have not tried but looks amazing (add pineapple and skip the shaker cheese but then it looks like Pincho . . .
    Pincho-I love it, but it’s not my favorite
    Sweet Dogs-I had big hopes and took my family for my birthday but was disappointed.
    Swenson’s-Bun no, cheese sauce no. When “restaurants” do hot dogs, they are often just weird.

    The best tasting plain hot dog (just the hotdog + bun) is the big fat one “Big BIte” at 7-11 . . . greasy good!

    My perfect hot dog is the Sabretts from a stand with not toasted bun, those onions cooked in red (whatever that is) sauce, and YELLOW mustard.

    Used to be a lady with a hot dog stand outside the WalMart in Doral (87th) who would be there like after 10PM til crazy hours. A hot dog with everything, but no dill pickle, no ketchup, no sauerkraut was the bomb! Pepitas, pineapple, etc. I think it was Columbian style. Haunted by these!

  2. If it had pineapple then it’s more than likely going to be Colombian. You may want to try MAO’s on Bird Road, it might be right up your alley plus it’s open late!
