Big City Dogs II

The hot dogs and sandwiches hail from New York and Chicago at this popular 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 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 cheese steaks, and messy half-pound burgers that can hang with the best in South Florida. The original location is on Commercial Boulevard in Oakland Park.
