US1 just south of Kendall Drive near Dadeland. Ate there many times back in my high school days at the "Cougar Machine".

I had forgotten all about them. Thanks for the mention.
We had one here in Mobile, AL on Airport Blvd across from the mall. When it closed Hooters moved in the building.

I remember the one on 41 in Ft. Myers in the early 70's. This was pre-75 when 4l was the main road south of Tampa. Great hot dogs and huge schooners of ice cold beer.

According to Wkikpedia (maybe right-maybe not) There are only 2 left. One in Nebraska & one in Mass. Doesn't sound like they'll be expanding any time soon.

For many years there was one right next to the Arnot Mall on NY-17 between Elmira & Corning. They didn't close until the late 80's.

I remember the Lums in Venice,fl. We would stop in there when our kids were little while visiting my grandparents who lived in Venice. The kids always talked about the hot dogs steamed in beer when they got home to their friends.

Thanks. That brings back a pleasant memory. A buddy in the Navy was a P3 pilot and invited me and my pharmacist friend to fly on a training flight from CA to Hawaii. Our first night there we stopped at that Lum's. The waitress told us if we could pour the first glass of beer from the pitcher without spilling a drop, the beer was free. Suitably challenged, we tried everything we could think of, but we failed each time. I still don't know how many pitchers we consumed in trying to get a free one. But I'm sure the real winner was Lum's.

Was it two weiners who streaked?

LUMS sounds like a great place. I never heard or had a LUM's hot dog in beer.

A great take off appetizer is little dogs or little smokies in beer.

1can or bottle of your favorite beer in a sauce pan, turn to med.
Add the dogs
Then you add whatever you like on them, ketchup, onions, sauerkraut, relish.....
Let it get hot and the dogs cooked.
Serve it in a fondue pot or crockpot and with a slotted spoon! Always a favorite and quick!

A hot dog is still one of the worst things you can eat no matter how you dress it up.

We recall the one on A1A in Satellite Beach, Florida....on the east coast.
That one was & is the namesake of a very popular surf spot as that Lums was oceanfront. That Lums is long gone .... but everyone still calls the surf spot "Lums"

Surfed there more times than I can count ... never ate there all that much however.

Probably, but the thread is about memories not nutrition. I'm sure you have a sweet food memory from days gone by. One of mine is the hot dogs prepared at a small shop near my house when I was growing up....as well as the coffee ice cream cones they served....ahhhhhh, sweet to remember.
