HotDog-Opolis Boca Raton

HotDogOpolis is a Chicago style hot dog stand that recently opened in Boca on North Federal Highway. I had the opportunity to enjoy lunch at HDO the past two days. On Monday, I had a char cheddar Polish with grilled onions on a steamed poppy seed bun with fresh hand cut fries. It was to die for! Yesterday I noshed on a char cheddar burger with grilled onions. OMG! Their menu is all Vienna Beef from Chicago and they use Merkt's cheddar cheese from Wisconsin on their burgers, dogs, and fries.I plan to have a char grilled salami sandwich with grilled onions on a pretzel roll for my next visit. Their menu includes corned beef, pastrami. soup, and chili. My dream has finally come true, the Chicago north shore has finally invaded Boca.

      googled it and it's north of Spanish River Blvd and north of Jeffrey St between Hastings and Ipswich on the east side

      plan to give it a try tomorrow

    2. Ok, So I couldnt resist, and stopped by for a dog and a polish sausage w/ Grilled onions. I can say I was not too impressed. I think Hot dog heaven down in Ft lauderdale is MUCH better. The Polish sausage I got was this grey looking tube of meat that didnt have much flavor. I took my dog with Chili and onions. Chili wasn't too bad, though I suspect it was out of a can... and the dog was ok. Dont think I will be running back any time soon... they do have a grilled Salami sandwich like I get at Hot Dog Heaven, maybe I will give it a second chance since it is relatively new.

      I will say the staff was very friendly, and polite. but that oly goes soo far...

        We checked this place out today for lunch. My first ever jumbo Chicago style dog was pretty darned good. Loaded Chicago style Vienna beef jumbo with tomato, mustard, onion, neon green relish, celery salt, dill pickle, and what they call sport peppers on a poppy seed bun. A combo of jumbo dog and fresh cut fries was $4.70, a pretty good deal. Add to that a selection of Boylan sodas and it was a good lunch since I work fairly close by.

      2. The Dogs are awesome, Vienna Beef hot dogs Chitown style with sport peppers, Hot Dog!
        Don't miss out gotta taste one and you are addicted. Don't forget the Celery Salt, yea baby.

          I've only been twice and on my last visit, the fryer oil was in dire need of changing. The fries had a used, burnt oil taste to them. Come on people, you can't overlook something so basic as changing your fryer oil regularly.

        2. This a great Chicago style dog even though I can't compare to an original since I have never had one anywhere else. A lot of my co-workers go here regularly. It seems their business has picked up quite a bit now that word has gotten out.

            I went back, and am now addicted to their griled Salami sandwich, they serve it on a pretzel roll, with some grilled onions, and spicy mustard. My mouth is watering just talking about it.
