Arbetter Hot Dogs

8747 Bird Road Miami, FL 33165 | Central Dade | 305-207-0555

Location Description:

It's not necessarily the hot dogs themselves that are better at Arbetter. Rather these mild mixed-meat skinless franks are, with their pleasantly inoffensive, neutral nonflavor and noncolor, ideal blank canvases for the three garnish combinations that made Arbetter's rep when this family-run place opened more than 40 years ago. The basic onion/relish dog is nicely tangy, and the sauerkraut/mustard dog, featuring beautifully buttery cooked-all-day tender kraut, is even better. Its rich and flavorful but not overly hot homemade all-meat (no beans) chili topping from an old Arbetter family recipe and a garnish of diced raw onion adds that reassuring subliminal message that diners are consuming a healthful greenish vegetable that doubtless counteracts the menu's cholesterol count -- so hey, have another.
