Fort Lauderdale is full of people fleeing cities with winters, and Hot Dog Heaven feels like it was ripped straight from a freezing Chicago neighborhood, in the best way possible. You can get a wonderful Chicago dog at the little shop (which has been open since 1979), but there are also Italian beef sandwiches, sides of giardiniera, and—the sleeper hit of the menu—a grilled salami sandwich. Hot Dog Heaven is home to the best hot dog in Fort Lauderdale, but it’s also a classic and a lovely place to stop for a weekend lunch. Just know you’ll probably have to sit outside or take it to go, because this place is tiny.
