Where We Were Eating: Big City Dogs

I'd like to think that naming a Broward County tiki hut is simple, but I can tell by yesterday's comments that some of you thought we were eating elsewhere. Luckily, a couple of you were on point with your guesses.

While we were eating at Big City Dogs in Fort Lauderdale, the location isn't anything remotely close to big. It is in a hut, you know.

Inside its yellow umbrellas, a woman takes your order while a man completes it. You have your choice of the award-winning hamburgers or the award-winning hot dogs. Surprisingly, the little yellow hut packs quite a bit of delicious food. If you dare take on the Super Boy, be sure to add chili and cheese to the dog.

This original Oakland Park location has been here for years; there is also one in Davie.
