Keep New Times Free


Broward / Palm Beach, FL
Best Of
If you haven’t figured it out from the New York City Public School System inspired name, PS-561 takes the New York-style hot dog and gives it a unique South Florida twist. Sabrett 100 percent beef hot dogs are dished out in a bright-yellow New York-themed public school bus and are split in half, grilled, and topped with gourmet toppings. In keeping with the whole academic theme, these ingenious dogs are handed down scholastic names. The FCAT comes with bacon, sweet coleslaw, jalapeños, and barbecue sauce; the Principal Ron has goat cheese, bacon, and barbecue; the Math Wiz is appropriately served with Asian-style slaw and sriracha mayo -- probably, the smartest hot dogs you'll ever stick in your mouth.
