- The hot dog toppings at this flagship location don’t stray much from traditional, with kraut, cheddar and jalapeno, and angel hair cole slaw -- but they make up for it with more adventurous options like char-grilled salami sandwiches, smokehouse beef brisket, gourmet sausages, hand-cut fries and chocolate-dipped cheesecake. – Broward Palm Beach New Times
- Harvey Loewenstein, Jay Wertheim and Judy Zimmer opened Hotdogopolis because they loved their hometown of Chicago's cuisine. And at Hotdogopolis, they take the Chicago-style hot dog to another level. – Sun Sentinel
Floridians looking to get a taste of Chicago have to travel no further than the closest HotDogOpolis, where the cooks serve Vienna Beef franks in the style made famous in the Windy City: piled high with mustard, onion, green relish, a dill pickle, tomato wedges, pepper, and a dash of celery salt. Other styles of hot dogs stay warm underneath a heap of sauerkraut or dunked into cornmeal batter, and a host of sausages, char-grilled burgers, and sandwiches also make an appearance on the menu. Cooks at the Boca Raton location, dubbed “PitaOpolis,” also stuff roast beef, tuna, and chunky hummus inside pitas, according to recipes designed by Chef Gary Wood.
