El Alpha Dog

$$$$
Hours:MONDAY6:00AM to 12:00AM

El Alpha Dog is a food truck that bounces around, but on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, you can find them in a Brickell parking lot (1324 SW 1st Ave) that houses ghost kitchens and their Blade Runner-esque delivery robots. It’s easy to miss this spot, but that’d be a shame, especially if you’re in need of late-night sustenance (they’re open until 3am Friday-Saturday, and midnight on Sunday). The Clasico Colombiano is our favorite here, and it consists of a hot dog topped with onions, cabbage, shoestring potatoes, grated cheddar, mozzarella cheese, ketchup, pink sauce, mustard, and pineapple sauce. As you probably just said out loud, yes, it’s very saucy, and you will need roughly 3,000 napkins. But somehow, all those toppings work in harmony and will have you strongly considering ordering another right after your first bite.
