Went to Sullivan's at Castle Island the other day with my lady friend.

If you are looking for a decent wiener at a low cost Sullivan's will do the trick.

Nothing special though. Not a hot dog place but a cheap food place at a tourist spot.

Wieners from Sullivan's come standard with a buttered toasted roll. Mine were grilled into the dark side. Choice of mustard, relish, onions, and ketchup. I got mine sans ketchup.

After ordering, the wieners come fast.

I think they're Kayem Frankfurters. They seem skinnier though than the ones in the supermarket.

I wouldn't make a special trip for these dogs but would pick some up if near Castle Island.

Not bad overall. 3/5!

Southern Florida Wiener Adventures

The lady and I recently drove down to Florida to stay at her pappy's house. He treated us to many things including Hot Dogs.

At Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlour in Dania Beach, FL, ice cream isn't the only ridiculously portioned item on the menu. They have GIANT WIENERS that are pretty good.

I got the 1/2 pound "New York Style" which came with pepper relish, cucumber relish, chopped onions, and cole slaw. This wiener was massive but came out to be a nice sized meal/snack on its own. Very filling. And yummy.

The 1 pound "Artillery Dog" comes with the same toppings. It is served with an air raid siren going off. Hand thrown in for gauge. This was ordered by one of my cohorts. Maybe next time I'll try to conquer this wiener.


I was given a pleasurable experience by the wieners at Dogma Grill in Miami. They serve Sabrett frankfurters here.

I ordered a "Pitchfork" which had barbecue sauce, cheese, bacon, and carmelized onions. It did the trick. Could have used a little more heat and non-orange cheese.

...and a Chicago style.

Looking forward to going down and checking out some other SoFlo wiener joints next year. I would definitely go to Jaxson's again and order something a little more interesting. Special thanks to the girlfriend's father for making it all possible.

Maybe I can get back on track with a regular posting schedule now that my vacations are out of the way.

Wiener Rendezvous

Usually when a man shows me his wiener I try to keep it between the two of us, but I felt that this particular occasion had to be shared!

My friend had me over for wieners and he chose to cook Hebrew National, which I'm not really a fan of, but I'll try anything twice. Cooked on a charcoal grill these wieners were nice and tan. However this experience was more about the A+ condiments.

Top-secret-heavily-guarded-ages-old-recipes for pickled onions and spicy mayo were used. Hot Damn! This was definitely a spicy combo. Some lime juice squeezed over the top was a nice balancing touch.

I enjoyed these wieners but I don't think it had anything to do with the wieners themselves.

This sh'meal gets a 4/5!
