This more than 30-year-old hot dog stand in Fort Lauderdale offers some of the most satiating Chicago-style dogs and sausages in the land. Owned by former Chicagoan Barry Star, Hot Dog Heaven serves a classic Windy City-style dog on a poppy bun, topped with mustard, neon relish, onions, pickles, hot peppers, tomatoes, and a dash of celery salt. Order one with a giant pickle, uncut if you dare.
