On a drive back to Miami from Daytona Beach, I made a detour and stopped at Lum's, in Davie. I had never been there before, but I have eaten at several now-extinct Lum's restaurants in the Miami area over the years. The manager told me that the Davie restaurant and one in Plattsburgh, NY are the only two left. DAVIE, FL LUMS: LUMS Entry Area:
As you can see, they still prominently announce the availability of Ollie Burgers and hot dogs steamed in beer. I was not really hungry, but I ordered a hot dog. This is what I got: LUMS HOT DOG:
Pretty sorry looking, eh? A flimsy roll, disintegrating before I had even touched it, and a pale, bland dog. What a disappointment. I cannot recommend even bothering to go for the hot dog if you are a mile away. I had hoped that it would be more like the one in the Roadfood.com review, http://roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=4195
This is the photo from the review:
That looks MUCH better to me.
