Chicago Dog and Company owners are two sisters born in Chicago and raised in Central Florida. We ordered the Chicago Dog for just $5, a Vienna beef dog, poppy seed bun, pickle spear, yellow mustard, tomato, diced onion and relish. It was an authentic experience and delicious. The hot dog spot in Altamonte Springs also offer tamales, pizza puffs, Chicago poutine, and italian beef sandwiches. Don’t be discouraged by the lines. It’s that good and worth the wait!

The Doghouse

Orlando, FL 32804

The Doghouse is tucked away in a great location in College Park, FL. Here we decided to go all out and try the loaded tots plus Buffalo Dog. They add hot sauce and blue cheese crumbles to your hot dog. What a great new taste we’ve never experienced.

The Loaded tots were phenomenal andhighly recommended. The hot dog spot in college park offers some great combinations and is definitely for the more adventurous type. Other options on the menu include the Uh Oh Dog, a hot dog topped with Spaghetti O’s, parmesan cheese, and an herb blend. Another interesting option is the Wild Style, a hot dog topped with Sriracha, bacon, crushed Fritos, and Ranch dressing. They have plain hot dogs for kids, Chicago dogs, Vegan dogs, and more!

We topped it off with a root beer float and now we’re truly in hot dog heaven. An Authentic Chicago Dog is a local favorite and always keeps you coming back for more.
