Since opening its original location in 1968, Orange Tree Hot Dogs has spread like a red-hot fire of red hots through the Jacksonville area, serving a sweet and simple menu of hot dogs, pizza, and fountain drinks. Create a finger-food masterpiece by adding a splash of chili ($2.34) to your bun-and-sausage canvas, or cram an “all” dog ($4.14) inside a gaping maw with heaping helpings of slaw, chili, cheese, onion sauce, and sauerkraut. Hot dogs encased in toasty corn-crust cocoons ($1.99) offer eaters dipping handles. Non-dog lovers can chow down on pepperoni personal pizzas ($3.64), mixing mid-air Arnold Palmers with iced tea ($1.79, medium) and lemonade ($1.99, large) perched high above their heads. Or try a freshly made orange frost ($2.79, large), a sweet-tooth-satisfying combination of OJ, orange syrup, and crushed ice that staves off sudden scurvy attacks.
The friendly staff at Orange Tree Hot Dogs harnesses the power of hot dogs to rally sports teams to victory and fuel wooden rollycoasters. Let these talented sausage-slingers fill the noontime void with today’s Groupon.

Orange Tree Hot Dogs
As the founding family of Orange Tree Hot Dogs, the Koppenbergers have carefully guarded their secret recipes since opening the first location in 1968. The "dash of magic" outlined in those recipes is central to the coleslaw that tops their most popular hot dog, the aptly named slaw dog, or the savory sauce that blankets the onion-sauce dog. The Koppenbergers' menu also features their popular Orange Frost drink—made with orange juice, orange syrup, and ice—which serves as both a refreshing treat and an extinguisher for mustaches that catch fire.
