The red wienermobile outside beckons; inside Mel's Hot Dogs it's order at the counter. It's a fine dog, the house special packed with sauerkraut, onion, mustard, relish and pickle. Still, the Polish sausage is a fat, juicy choice, accessorized with brown mustard and grilled onions. At this worn red-and-white storefront, the clientele is all flip-flops, sunburns and wet bathing suits, many fresh from the nearby chills and thrills of Busch Gardens.
