When An American Classic Meets A Cuban Staple, You Get Pollo Tropical's New Cuban Hot Dog

When An American Classic Meets A Cuban Staple, You Get Pollo Tropical's New Cuban Hot DogMiami, FL  (RestaurantNews.com)  What do you get when you combine a classic hot dog and the beloved Cuban sandwich? A Cuban Hot Dog, of course! And Pollo Tropical® is launching one just in time for the Fourth of July Weekend.

Pollo’s Cuban Hot Dog starts with an all-beef frank on a soft hot dog bun and is then topped with ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, papitas and finished off with a drizzle of mayo-mustard. The Cuban Hot Dog will be sold Friday, July 2nd through Monday, July 5th at Pollo Tropical restaurant locations throughout Florida or via the brand’s MyPollo app.

And if a Cuban Hot Dog isn’t enough to get your Fourth of July Weekend party started, you can pair it with Pollo’s recently-launched Rum Mojito. The new Rum Mojito is made with real White Rum, sparkling water, natural lime, mint flavors and has 5.8% alcohol by volume. At just $2 each, it’s the perfect way to celebrate this weekend. The ready-to-drink cocktail can be found exclusively at most Pollo Tropical locations throughout Florida – for dine-in, drive-thru and carry out.
