Whether sitting at a baseball game or lounging on a beach, there’s nothing that finishes off a lazy summer day quite like a perfect hot dog.

No matter which one you choose, these affordable and delicious dogs will add the finishing touch to any day.
Arbetter's Hot Dogs

This Miami staple has been around for ages. Their classic hot dogs, gooey cheese fries and on-point chili keep customers coming back. Loyal customers regularly come from far and wide to satisfy their Arbetter’s cravings. Their friendly service, simple menu and retro vibe add to the charm of this place.

9860 SW 40th Street
Pincho Factory is a new, world fusion restaurant that combines the owners’ Palestinian and Venezuelan heritages. While their menu also offers ‘pinchos’ (something like a Hispanic kebab) and hamburgers, their unique hot dogs are something worth trying. Aside from traditional hot dogs, they offer the special Pincho Factory dog made with ground beef. But, what has many raving is the “That’s What She Said” dog, a medley of potato sticks, sauces, cheese and bacon all on a foot long hot dog. Eat your heart out!
