Doggi Style

George Martinez
Unless you're a male bunny named Romeo, Don Juan, or Thumper, humping in public is a pretty crass act. That is, unless you're eating something utterly delicious. In that case, the impulse might happen unconsciously. That's why we suggest bringing your mom, boss, kindergarten teacher, or favorite nun to Doggi Style. It's a clean, little hot-dog stand nuzzled in the far corner of a gas station's parking lot at the intersection of Coral Way and Red Road. The place doles out not only authentic Venezuelan-style street food but also a few bites of nostalgia for the homeland. On the menu are hot dogs ($2.50), vegetarian hot dogs ($3.50), and choripanes served on crusty French bread. They are all done up with grilled onions, lettuce, and potato sticks. Burgers or grilled chicken sandwiches ($5.50) are smothered with ham, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, corn, and potato sticks. Get them fully loaded (an additional $2) with a fried egg, bacon, and avocado on top, and you just might say, "Bow-wow." For an extra kick of awesome, sample of few of owner Laura Schloeter's homemade garlic, spicy mayo, and pineapple sauces. Best part: no grease seeping from your pores afterward. And be forewarned: This is not fast food; everything is made to order, so you might have to wait a bit. But it's worth it.
