Discover the Delicious Hot Dogs at Sweet Dogs Miami

I live not too far from Sweet Dogs. I remember driving right by the sign one day and asking myself, was this always here? It just hadn’t opened for business yet.

Then, suddenly, a few days later, I saw the hurricane shutters open for the restaurant open. I had just eaten lunch, so I set my mental lunch calendar to hit them up the following day.

What to Eat at Sweet Dogs?

The Sweet Dogs menu has about 9 or 10 signature pre-set glizzys you can order. In addition, popular local sports have hot dogs named after them like The Heat, The Dolphin, The Marlin, The Panther & The U.

The only sport I’m into is the UFC (you thought I was going to say eating, didn’t you?), and yes, MMA is a sport. However, I had no preference based on the team name. My decision was based solely on the ingredients.

Sweet Dogs does not give you an option when it comes to dog size; they only serve the 1/4 pound Nathan’s all-beef hot dog. You can get the dog boiled, grilled, or deep-fried, but if you don’t tell them your preference, you end up with a grilled dog.

The Dolphins is Sweet Dog‘s take on a Colombian-style dog. They got it right.

It’s not overly sweet, which usually kills these types of dogs. The Dolphin is bacon, mozzarella, pineapple sauce, and canned potato sticks to add some crunch.

Just a Small Change

If there were only one thing I would change, it would be the sticks, as I prefer crushed potato chips on this hot dog style. However, it was most excellent, as Ted “Theodore” Logan might say.

I’ve ordered the Beef Chili Cheese Fries every time I’ve been here, but this is the first time they’ve used the homemade cheese sauce instead of the shredded cheddar cheese. It takes these chili cheese fries up to Arbetter’s chili cheese fries level (my favorite in South Florida).

Another favorite of mine is the made-to-order corn dog. Each looks different from the previous one.

It’s terrific, but I’d suggest changing out the wood stick as it can’t handle the weight of the 1/4 hot dog. Besides that, dip in mustard, and I better not catch you putting ketchup on this ugly beauty.

Don’t miss out on the Italian sausages, which taste perfect with their soy sauce-marinated grilled onions.

You get one of those little snack-sized candy bars for every dog that you order. You can spot them in some of the pics.

If you need a more substantial dessert, they’ve got a soft-serve ice cream machine, which means cones, sundaes, and shakes.

Sweet Pops

A few years after opening Sweet Dogs, Vic (the owner of Sweet Dogs) added a selection of flavored popcorns called Sweet Pops to their food arsenal. The one to get is called the 305 Mix with guava-coated popcorn. It’s highly addictive!
