Hot Dogs located in Destin Florida, Refreshments

Learn About Dave!


Dave, a child in West Virginia shared time with his circus buddy grandfather, falling for the hotdog and bright lights. David Del Donie's destiny was forged.

Two formative years with Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers, 1976-77, account for the humble beginnings that set me upon a road of ever enlarging cooking adventures.

A real passion for the "Chef's Field Of Dreams" commenced in 1991 at Pargo's Restaurant and Shoney's Corporation in Nashville, Tn. This energy catapulted me into four years of cooking for Calhoun's Rib and Steak House, where I also managed the kitchen.

Dave's Dogs its all in the bun1999 found me drawn to Destin, Florida's pristine beaches, an ideal location for the first of my hotdog stands. Five years later, with hard work, discernment of the clientele's needs, and the fine tuning of my superior product, destiny has lead me to the ownership of a booming business, "Dave's Dogs" located at the Harbor Walk Village. My original and legendary "Its All In The Bun" gourmet dog has evolved.

I project the development and construction of even more locations, and the introduction of "Dave's Dogs" nationwide.

Seabreezes, fresh high quality ingredients, patrons who remember the uncommon goodness of a "Dave's Dog", when they see you again. Dave asks "Is there a better business anywhere?
