What you're hankering for
No one really knows the origins of the frankfurter or who was the first to slap a hot meat link into a steamy loaf. Frankfurt, of course, is a town in Germany and Wiener is probably a reference to Vienna -- the city's German name is Wien.

Whatever. We've investigated, probed and judged the naked the town's links, the dirty pinks, to come up with Miami's best wieners. Welcome to the top ten hot dogs in Miami.

El Rey never wanted to be king.
10. El Rey de las Fritas
The cafeteria-style diner that Miamians know oh so well. Complete with pictorial menu display. We ordered a perro caliente sin nada ($3.25) to get a sense of what meat they were packing. The flavor is pretty good, but this is definitely more of a quick churrasco joint. We do like the fact that you get a huge portion for the cost, and all on a toasty roll.

Link lost under mounds of fluff.
9. Los Perros Aqui
The hot dogs here ($4) are somewhat hard to find considering they are hidden under thick layers of crushed potato chips, and copious amounts of sauce. It was sort of like eating a bun pumped full of mayonnaise with a thick coating of chips. Filling and heart stopping all in one gluttonous package. Hooray.

Lums had a good hot dog. Dogma is a favorite. Some of these other places have a $ 9 hot dog ? Why you can get a burger for that, or even a chicken or mahi sandwich ?

Pincho and Dogma are too fancy for me. I'll take my classic squeeze-em-til-they-drip-off-your-elbows loaded MOC dogs from Arbetter's any day. The stuff that hot dog dreams are made of.

reading this made me think of the once-great Mr. Coney Island on 167th St.  Issac Gellis franks on the grill.

Not sure how La Moon is #3 on this list...it was seriously the most disgusting hotdog I have ever eaten.  And that is saying a lot.  They can't even hold a candle to a 7-11 (disgusting) hotdog.  Did they bribe their way onto this list?  Or was the "taster" intoxicated when dining there.

Pincho Man 's Sammy Dog should never be left out.

The Corner has a sick Chicago-style dog - Kosher Dog, tomato, sport peppers, pickle, onions, relish, celery salt, yellow mustard...on a poppy seed bun.  Delicious!!!

You missed Shake Shack, Five Guys, Hall of Fame Hot Dogs and Duffy's on Red Road, all of which have excellent hot dogs.

Good call listing Dog Eat Dog in the top 5, but where on earth is Yellow Submarine???  Without a doubt the best dog in the history of the food!!!  Honestly, they should've been first, Dog Eat Dog 2nd and Arbetter's 3rd.
