Foursquare Tips

  • Bacon Cheddar Dog!
  • Fire Dog is delicious. Beef hotdog cooked with Dijon mustard and hot peppers topped with grilled onions, bell peppers, and sport peppers. Best hotdog place I've ever been too
  • The hot dog is as much a part of life as breathing air, and Mel's quite frankly is king. The Chicago dog is as good as you'll find anywhere outside the Windy City.
  • They have weinerful catering!!!
  • The chili cheese dog was amazing
  • Chicago Style is O_O good
  • Sporks do the job on the beans
  • Chicago dog. All the way.
  • Beef was good, close to authentic; however, a nuked tamale? Why not steam TomTom Tamales?
  • Chicago dog!
  • Chilling dog with mustard and onions rock. Get a side of else for a topping. Too mean for the people.
  • No longer cash only! Debit and credit now accepted after 38 years.
  • Get the side bowl of chili!
  • A must visit if you are in Tampa. Try the Chicago style dog.
  • Mighty Mel Basket is great!
  • Mel's Chicago Style Hot Dogs are "the" best in all of Tampa. Just wish he had a downtown location!!
  • Best Hot Dogs in Tampa!!!!
  • Had the Mel's special hot dog and it's good.
  • Pepper dog is a little too much but everything else has been wonderful.
  • I only eat hot dogs from here. The buns are the absolute perfect touch.
