WILD ABOUT HARRY’S
Since 1996, Harry has been serving his mother’s recipe of frozen custard & hot dogs — so this is a true Dallas staple located in North Oak Lawn! The checkered floor and bright colors will definetely have you feeling nostalgic with their tropical diner theme. The Dallas, with mustard, relish, onions and cheese, is a must, but beyond it, there are 10 options and you can upgrade any to a jumbo dog, veggie dog or polish sausage.
OAK LAWN | DIRECTIONS
Angry Dog is an OG Deep Ellum dive bar and has been open since 1990 on Commerce Street. Their hot dog has made the Best Of list from Dallas Observer and D Magazine! They’re known for their “Angry Dog”, piled high with chili, grilled onions & cheese, but they also serve local fave Luscher’s! You can always expect sports games on their 9 tvs so pull up a chair and order one of their hot dogs while you’re at it!

COLD BEER COMPANY
Cold Beer Company’s vintage vibe rests in Deep Ellum and offers $2 off hot dogs every Wednesday! Their “Big Ass Hot Dog” is a 1/2 pound all beef dog on a poppyseed bun. You can add chili and hatch queso... or order the “Expo Dog,” which is essentially the Big Ass Hot Dog plus mac-and-cheese, bacon and peppers!

CORNDOG WITH NO NAME
In Dallas, we deeply fry our dogs and eat ‘em as corndogs! “CornDog With No Name” is a mother/daughter team of fried food connoisseurs that started this pop-up restaurant and special event food concept together. They serve their franks hand-dipped in a corn flour-based batter on a wooden stick and then deep-fried in hot oil. Make sure to top off your entree with a sweet funnel cake! Curbside & delivery are coming soon so stay tuned!
