The theme is Key West: bright colors, outdoorsy, laid back. Toss in some picnic tables and plenty of inexpensive, fun food and you’ve got Dune Dog Café. It’s a winning combination that draws lots of locals for lunch and diner. This little place is busy all the time – even on sluggishly humid and hot summer days.

Hot dogs headline the menu (they’re delish) but the cafe also features wings, barbeque ribs, fish, shrimp – even lobster – and more. There's grilled veggies and a small assortment of salads for the health conscious. Portions are generous. Dune Dog welcomes children and offers a Puppy Menu for those under 12.

Dune Dog is not air conditioned. It sits close to the road, not the beach, under a canopy of trees making it easy to miss if you’re not looking for it. Trees plus fans manage to keep temperatures but not the humidity down. That may not be comfortable for some during the summer. A winter visit comes with a caveat: lines of eager customers seem to grow during cooler months.
Wine and beer served in a super casual atmosphere Service: good. Credit cards.
