It's as if Click and Clack of "Car Talk" on NPR opened a hot dog stand - the decor is even reminiscent of a '50's gas station. But the zany brothers are Lee and Tim Papadeas who traveled all over the country researching dogs before opening up the Daytona Chili Station.
The got a lot of things right - a choice of Vienna Beef, Nathan's or Sabrett's hot dogs; three to five way Cincinnati style chili, available mild, hot or HOT; and just because they like it, a darn good lobster bisque.
The dog to the upper right is their variation on a slaw dog - a spicy, horseradish slaw dog.
The Daytona Chili Station could get five grease stains now, but I'm holding off until the go from as good a tasting frozen french fry as I've come across to fresh cut, twice fried fries.
