The original Dandee Donut Factory is a small dump in Pompano and I never really wanted to go into the place; the one in Hollywood is a little closer and I'd never seen it before. I originally planned to have a late breakfast, but when I got there I changed my mind. I didn't want to eat in this place. It's in a not-so-hot neighborhood, and they really don't want you to sit by yourself at a table.

I really didn't want to sit at the counter; I hate eating at counters in diners and donut shops.

Their menu has a lot of interesting stuff on it, so I figured I'd just get a Chicago dog. I ordered it at the counter and waited.
This is the kind of place that just tries to sell too much stuff; donuts, pizza, hot dogs, smoothies.

Finally I got the dog, and headed out. Opening it removed any hope I had of having a good Chicago Dog.
Dandee Donuts Factory Sad Chicago Dog
This hot dog had nothing to do with a Chicago Dog. No pickle, no sport peppers, the wrong kind of relish and way too much mustard. Just a disaster. The hot dog was also skinny and overcooked. A waste of $3.70.
On their menu, they have the correct ingredients for a Chicago Dog. Apparently the people who work here just don't know how to make it. Im glad I didn't get breakfast or lunch. As good as their menu sounds, I have no confidence I'd get anything close to what I might expect.
