Big City Hot Dog Stand - Closed

1199 E. Commercial Blvd. Oakland Park, FL 33334 | Oakland Park | 954-776-4744

Location 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.
