As I continue to take my infidel readers on my photographic tour of my old neighborhood, there’s another location that is also still there….
Arbetter’s Hot Dogs. There are so very few Hot Dog stands around. In the old days, there was Mr. Coney Island on 167th Street. Man that place was good, but it’s gone. The national chains just don’t cut it for me. There’s Hot Dog Heaven in Broward, which is great, but it’s in Broward. But in Miami-Dade, there’s Arbetter’s Hot Dogs, still serving them hot on Bird Road and 88th. Personally, I always got two perro calientes there: 1 with mustard and relish, and 1 with chili, cheese, onions, and mustard. That and a Coke and I was set.
I hear that the place is no longer run by the Arbetter family, but the place is still there as it was in the 1970’s when I ate my perro caliente….
