Let’s be frank—there are a lot of good eats in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches. But when it comes to an All-American classic, the hot dog, there’s one local joint that we really relish—Hot Diggity Dogs and BBQ in Bunnell. This small roadside stand didn’t invent the hot dog but they’ve become the unofficial wieners (erm, winners!), of this iconic food in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches.
A Must-Try Florida Roadside Restaurant
Just off the main drag in Bunnell, a cartoonish, sunglass-clad hot dog waves to drivers from a roadside sign. Next to it—a small, orange-bricked building. The side of the building is a tribute to America, a colorful mural featuring symbolic, patriotic imagery: Mount Rushmore, The Statue of Liberty, a bald eagle, and a space shuttle are splashed across the wall. There’s no inside at this hot dog joint, just a small counter and window to place your order. Seating is around the corner—basic, covered picnic tables. But don’t be fooled by the building. Its simplicity belies the creative eats that await patrons.
