We ate here twice while on vacation. My daughter said it was the best chili cheese dog she has ever had. I really liked the two dogs I tried. I had the Wing Dog and the Hangover. The Hangover was my favorite. Hot dogs come in two sizes... one is your normal sized dog and the other is much bigger.... More

Wife and I stopped in this place right before they closed at 3. Glad we did. We split a chili dog and it was delicious. The owners are very nice and help you out with your order. I would definitely recommend.

This place is a gem in west Texas. The owner/cook is friendly and always pleasant. They come up with interesting dog combinations, from the hangover with chili, bacon, corn chips, and cheese, to the Bangkok with slaw and peanut sauce. They make a veggie stick alternative to the beef dogs, which my daughter swears by. Finally, order the potato flops... More

Really good dogs with wonderful flavor combinations. I had the El Capitan (I think that was the name of it) with cilantro sauce and pineapple - to die for (almost).

Don't miss this food truck for a great chili dog. Stopped here while passing through Alpine. Asked the locals at the gas station where to eat and they recommended Cow Dog. Great choice.
