Tap 42 - Ft. Lauderdale

I have realized that I'm a purist when it comes to food.  I want the essence of a meal to shine through.  When it comes to burgers, the meat is what counts the most.  The Prohibition Burger at Tap 42 is quite tasty with aged cheddar, applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion and their "secret sauce."  The bun is the absolute right consistency.  Overall, I liked the burger but I am not running back to eat it again soon.  The burger was juicy and flavorful, but the restaurant skimped on size.  

The conglomeration of additional accompaniments mask the essence of the meal...the meat itself.  

Therefore, I recommend Tap 42's Prohibition Burger with a "medium" rating. (3 out of 5)

HotDogOpolis - Boca Raton


Yes, there are burgers. But don't let these juicy pictures of their fresh Creekstone Farms meat fool you. This is a true Hot Dog Heaven! HotDogOpolis carries some of the best quality game meats, stylized hot dogs and fresh barrel pickles this side of Chicago.


The menus is always evolving...
Be on the look out for the Official "Burgers By The Beach Dog"

Not satisfied with my words... How about Michael B - a first time HotDogOpolis customer that was also taking pics of the menu just like me:

“Great dogs and sausages in a little friendly hole-in-the-wall place on the Boca/Delray line.  Chicago dog was fantastic, as I had been advised it would be . . . and superior to the Chicago dog nearby at Shake Shack.  Being a purist, I also went for a no-frills beef dog with mustard and onions, and was not disappointed.  Fries look to be cut on premises and I tore through my cheese fries pretty quick.  All in all I’m very, very happy with this new discovery and look forward to returning so I can begin to work my way through the “specialty dogs and sausages” menu!

Also, they were just featured on CBS12 Palm Beach for National Hot Dog Day!
