  • Hotdogs are the best in the city.
  • Fyi: Ordered Garlic Parmesan Fries, guy tries to tell me they don't sell, them that they are actually Garlic Cotija Cheese Fries. If drive-thru they give you the fries as a dine-in style not to go. :/

  • How in the world did I live in Houston for 2 years and not try this place. Best chili dogs for less than 3 bucks!
