Summertime calls for beer and hot dogs. Through September, Duffy's Sports Grill is churning out over-the-top sausages wrapped in bacon, doused in chili and cheese, and even piled high with corned beef.

Created by corporate chef Eric Parker, the restaurant chain's "Dog Days of Summer" menu includes four unique dogs, which are available at all Duffy's locations in South Florida.

Highlights include the cosmic dog, wrapped in flash-fried bacon and topped with sweet potato mustard and bacon blue cheese coleslaw; a frito variety topped with chili, cheddar jack cheese, onion, and Fritos chips; and a Reuben dog layered with corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and thousand island dressing.

There's also a New England-style lobster-roll hot dog served on a griddled roll. Items are priced at $8.99 and up. All, with the exception of the lobster roll, are made with a beef hot dog.

"The Reuben dog follows the meat-on-meat trend that continues to find its way onto menus," Parker says. "And for the cosmic dog, I felt a blue-cheese-and-bacon-infused slaw would complement a sweet potato purée mustard. Plus, it's served on a crispy fried bacon-wrapped hot dog. I truly believe it's something that can't be found anywhere else."

The hot dogs will be available until mid-September, Parker says. After that, he'll release a new menu coinciding with the beginning of football season.
