Anyone who has lived in North Palm Beach County any length of time knows the Dune Dog Café, the no-frills hot dog-centric eatery in Jupiter.
Dune Dog Cafe has been serving up great dogs and more (don’t miss the onion rings) for the past 25 years.
For its silver anniversary, Dune Dog is taking its top sellers on tour. The Dune Dog Food Truck will be making stops around town offering free hot dogs to the public, teachers, first responders, and community leaders to thank them for their loyalty.
On May 23, the Dune Dog Food Truck will pull into Lighthouse Cove Adventure Golf in Jupiter. The first 750 people to visit will get a free hot dog and waffle fries. The anniversary celebration is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“Twenty-five years in business is a significant achievement for any restaurant. For a place that started off just serving hot dogs, it’s extraordinary. We realize our longevity would not be possible without our loyal customers and our outstanding staff,” said Dune Dog owner Greg Bartoli. “We owe them our success, and we want to say thank you.”
After the public event, Dune Dog will serve those who serve the community. Teachers, firefighters, police officers, and city staff each will receive signature bites for free when the food truck visits Jupiter Community High School, Palm Beach Fire Rescue stations 18 and 19, the Jupiter Municipal Complex, and the Jupiter Police Department.
Named one of the top hot dog joints in America, Dune Dog has become a landmark for locals and tourists. Over the years, the restaurant has expanded its menu to include ribs, seafood, and salads. The popularity of the Jupiter location led to the opening of a second restaurant in Stuart, Fla., this past Fall.
