Best Hot Dogs in Miami are out there if you’re looking. One of my pet peeves is when someone says Miami has no good insert word here. A little patience goes a long way with hot dogs in the 305 since they aren’t many dedicated hot dog joints. But, while Miami doesn’t have the rich hot dog history of Chicago, New York, or Texas, we’re getting there. This list is more of a starter list as you begin your journey. Don’t hesitate to comment below and leave your favorite spots I might have omitted. Who knows, maybe I’ll bring back my event ! Wiener Bash 10 Best Hot Dogs in Miami

Ah ok, fair enough. I was not aware of a change of ownership. We have been there back in 2019 and really liked it.
What is your opinion about Dogma Grill? I really enjoyed the Hot Dog there…
I haven’t eaten there since the last ownership change so it wouldn’t be fair for me to comment.
Ive never had Rutt’s but in Jersey, kinda north Jersey lives Hot Rod’s Hot Dogs and it blows away all hot dog places everywhere, including their house made fries! They’re the best for sure!
I’ve got Rutt’s Hut on my list but never heard of The Hot Grill, will add it. Thanks.
Beast. On your next road trip, may I recommend you visit Clifton, New Jersey. There, you will find Rutt’s Hut, home of the Ripper. A deep fried hotdog. Also, up the road a bit is The Hot Grill, home of the Hot Texas Wiener. The HTW is a north Jersey thing, and there are many restaurants that sell them in the area. Hot Grill is my favorite, but others think differently, which is all good. According to local lore, the HTW was created by Greek immigrants in the 30’s – 40’s, it’s a fried dog with spicy mustard, thin bean less chili sauce, diced raw onions on top. That is called all the way. You’ll eat five. Fries suck, but are made palatable by getting them topped with sauce. The cheeseburger is nothing special, except when you get it all the way. That is some good shit.
How come Costco didn’t make the list? :-p
There’s always next year!
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!
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!
