I was never a fan of Dogma Grill in Fort Lauderdale. The "gourmet" hot dog joint prided itself on unique hot dogs made with a wide range of ingredients, from chili to feta cheese. But I just found its take on regional dogs a little uninspired, and frankly (har har) manufactured. On top of that, there were the prices: Paying $5 for a poorly cooked weiner topped with sour cream is not my idea of a cheap or effective meal. Well, seems I'm not the only one who thought so. I was driving by the Dogma spot this weekend on Federal Highway near Davie Road and found it was closed. All that was left at the vacant spot was the Zagat sticker on the door. 

Dogma, which at one time sported four locations, is now down to one, on Biscayne Boulevard in Miami. The closure comes a little over a year after the Washington Avenue Dogma Grill shuttered its doors. Owner Jeffrey Akin could not be reached for comment.

Hot dog fans in Fort Lauderdale shouldn't worry. There's still plenty of places to get a quality dog, including the superior Hot Dog Heaven and Big City Dogs
