Hot Dogs in central fl

I have noticed some relatively new hot dog places around the Orlando area,and have tried a couple,the best of which was Tubbys on 17- 92 in Maitland,easily the best Chicago style dog I've had in the area,anybody else have suggestions for good dog's? ,i am already familiar with Hot Dog Heaven,and Uncle Al's sausage (i believe is the name? in winter park),and both are good,also Doggone good Hot Dogs in Eustice,is pretty good.

  1. If you are ever in the South Daytona Area, I recommend Long Doggers on Nova Road. It's a nifty little place with a great Ruben Dog - and the prices are pretty good. I pay less for a foot long covered in cheese and chili there than a regular plain dog in a baseball stadium! =)

        Mmm, that's a West Virginia dog (chili and slaw) if I'm not mistaken. Arbetter's in Miami made the best hot dogs I've ever had (including introducing me to the West Virginia dog), but I have yet to try Chubby's, Hot Dog Heaven, and Uncle Andy's around here.

          Bob, I need your help finding a classy restaurante that serves lunch for my daughter's college graduations. Right now its teh Samba Room, but I would love your insight

            Try Deputy Dog's Hotdogs just north of 27/441 in Leesburg...the site is authentic Chicago Dogs, Coney Dogs, Gyro's...

          2. In colonialtown on Ferncreek and Colonial there is a stand called between the buns-- they will split and grill the dogs for you! Also fresh fries and great chili!!

                You can't miss it- the stand is a giant hot dog in a bun! The guy who operates it is totally a perv; but a harmless and hilarious one!

                  in the parking lot of a chevron station

                    Sounds a lot like the Wienerschnitzel wiener wagon (the original, not the lame panel vans). Sadly, not available west of Texas.


              2. There's a hot dog restaurant on Plant Street in Winter Garden. Haven't tried it yet.

                1. if you make it to tampa, mels hot dogs is the best in the bay. they are just east of busch gardens on busch blvd. it is prob. the cleanest restaurant ive been in and has won awards for its cleanliness and food also. i rec. the chicago or the might mel. you wont be let down.
