While hot dogs began from humble beginnings, today they're one of the most popular street foods and often come covered with delicious toppings ranging from avocados to five-alarm chili. Luckily, gourmet hot dogs in Houston are easy to find—and to enjoy! When you're ready to enjoy a gourmet dog, these restaurants near our Houston apartments offer their unique creations to-go:
Good Dog Houston
Known for its inventive combinations, Good Dog Houston began as a food truck. Now boasting brick and mortar locations, it serves Texas-made franks and handcrafted condiments prepared from the finest, freshest ingredients. Dogs include Sunshine, Picnic, and Southern Comfort. Also, they pair well with the fries and bacon braised collard greens, and are available for pickup.
James Coney Island
Serving Houston since 1923, James Coney Island opened the same year Calvin Coolidge became president, and Babe Ruth hit two home runs in a World Series game. Established by brothers Tom and James Papadakis, a flip of the coin decided the restaurant's name. Today, their family keeps their traditions alive while creating new ones to keep up with the times. Sample the Baja dog. A customer favorite, it features guacamole, pico de gallo, cilantro, jalapenos, and chipotle mayo on a toasted artisan bun. Also, don't forget the baked tots and order for DoorDash delivery.
Home Plate Bar & Grill
Found across from Minute Maid Park, Home Plate serves delicious game-day food. The menu features something for everyone. So, in the kitchen, the chefs prepare the dishes from scratch and strive to keep the offerings fresh and exciting. Try the Chicago-style dog served with fries or the hot dog sampler with the ballpark nachos. Home Plate offers daily pickup.
