Big City Hot Dog Stand - CLOSED
Oakland Park, FL 33334
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
The hot dogs and sandwiches hail from New York and Chicago at this popular Commercial Boulevard lunch counter. Franks this good could hold their own in any big city: The Polish ($5), a spiced, hot dog/sausage hybrid topped with sautéed onions and mustard, is definitely a worth making the trip. The aptly named "ripper" ($3.50) is not for the faint of heart, either: Big City starts with an ordinary dog, then wraps it in bacon, deep-fries it Jersey-style, and drenches it with creamy nacho cheese sauce. In addition to the dogs, Big City dishes up stellar Italian beef sandwiches, Philly cheesesteaks, and messy half-pound burgers that can hang with the best in South Florida. There's a second location in Davie.
