Houston Press' Description
You can get an old-fashioned cheese coney here, or you can get an authentic Chicago-style hot dog topped with the traditional tomato, pickle, pepper, onion and celery salt. Vienna Beef, the biggest hot dog maker in Chicago, ships all the ingredients to Houston, from the natural-casing franks to the poppy seed-covered Mary Ann Bakery buns. So the dog you eat here is exactly like the one you get in the Windy City. If you've never had a Chicago hot dog before, you owe it to yourself to try this American classic -- especially now that you don't have to fly to O'Hare to get one.
Tips from foursquare
This guy is the nicest employee EVER!
Get the #1 combo with cheese with an extra coney. Be sure to get chili and cheese on the tater tots!
I've been eating here for years. I used to come here with my parents and brother back in the day. But tonight the food just isn't up to par at ALL
The hostess guy is amazing...I believe his name is Toney ...also one thing is being fast and another thing is being fast with order accuracy...touch up on your service.
Stick to the hot dogs. Unless the guacamole burgers are $0.99, get your fast food diner burgers at Sonic instead.
