Tasty top spots to celebrate National Hot Dog Day in South Florida

July is National Hot Dog Month, and today (July 18) is officially National Hot Dog Day, when the North American Meat Institute holds a frankfurter luncheon on Capitol Hill.

America’s unofficial hot dog holiday came on July Fourth, when Nathan’s Famous held its annual hot dog eating contest in Brooklyn. Joey Chestnut devoured a record 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes.

Fortunately those who eat for pleasure and not competitively can take their time to relish the relish (or mustard, cheese and chili). No matter your preference — New York pushcart with soggy sauerkraut, Chicago dog with relish, tomato and sport pepper, or Colombian perrada with pink sauce and pineapple — there are some wonderful wieners out there for the chomping.

With the (hot) dog days of summer upon us, click through the photo gallery for some top spots where frankfurter fanatics in South Florida can chow down.
