Located in downtown Winter Park next to the Gausthaus Eichler, the Cosmic Dog is a delicious and affordable new addition to your summertime lunch options. The bright colored vendor stand specializes in a variety of hot dogs (beef, pork, chicken and veggie) that are first steamed and then put on the grill for that yummy finishing touch. Being ladies who can appreciate a quality hot dog, Amy and I went to check it out the other day. We both went with the “meal deal” which includes your choice of dog, side, and drink for $6.50. As the beef franks went on the grill, we chose our sides from three options of chips, curry potato salad or homemade coleslaw. Last but not least was my personal favorite, the lengthy condoment station stocked with an array of peppers, onions, slaw, sauces and more. Topped off with an ice cold soda, we enjoyed our meal in the sun, at one of the picnic tables provided. Fernand, the owner of Cosmic Dog (see above) was very gracious and also gives out punch cards that will get you a free dog after purchasing five.
