Big City Dogs Moves to the Suburbs

Big City Dogs, that New York- and Chicago-style sandwich shack on Commercial Highway in Oakland Park, just got a little suburban up in here. Its second location recently opened at the Shops at Arrowhead in Davie (2451 S. University Drive).

The new digs is slinging all the favorites of the original yellow stand, including overstuffed Italian beef sandwiches dripping with jus, bacon-wrapped Jersey rippers, and a hamburger so damned good, it might just kill a man. In fact, I sampled Big City's burger again just this week, and it's a surefire contender for Best Burger this year. A half-pound of grilled, freshly ground beef on a thick, sturdy bun covered with mayo, tomato, lettuce, thick dill pickle spears, American cheese, and a wad of slowly caramelized onions. It was so juicy and messy and awesome that I'm thinking about picking up another today.

The new location is open for lunch and dinner. Call 954-888-1338.
