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
Get your fix for dogs. Original Coney with cheese rocks. Never gets old. Add chili to just about anything. Great kid place. Wed kids night.
try the chili pie it's yummy
The Walker Street (formerly known as Combo #1) is by far the most classic and best thing on the menu!
Go for the All Beef Texas Dog with some James Coney pepper sauce.
Try the frito pie or chili cheese dog! Kids eat free on Wednesdays
