Readers’ Choice: Your favorite place for hot dogs in Palm Beach County


When we asked our social media followers to name the “best hot dog in Palm Beach County,” the response was decisive and thunderous:

Diner Dogs!

Funny thing is Diner Dogs has no restaurant. But it has a following.

Not having a building to call its own is just a technicality for the family-run hot dog enterprise, which operates out of the Brewhouse Gallery in Lake Park five nights a week.

The business is the brainchild of Loxahatchee resident and chief hot-dog bling-er Tony Arnold, a fan of the retro diner era. With the help of his wife Gloria and daughters Sofia and Olivia, he has designed a mash-up of ’50s and ’60s references (huge fuzzy dice included), guilty pleasure touches (hello, fried onion strings and creamy horseradish sauce!) and Greek vessels (gyro bread).

Arnold was thrilled to be voted readers’ favorite.

“My wife and I work hard and it means a lot to us… thank you!” says Arnold, who favors Sabrett skinless beef hot dogs and whose menu includes quesadillas, mini pizzas, cider doughnuts and other small bites.

The couple does work hard. He’s a sales rep. She’s a school teacher. Their hot dog business means Arnold works seven days a week.

Of course, it’s not work when you’re having fun – and chowing on franks at Lake Park’s popular artists’ gathering spot.
