Best Hot Dogs Dallas 2007 - Big D's Dogs

For years, we've longed for a decent hot dog joint to open in Dallas. Sure, some love Wild About Harry's, but we know better. We've been to New York. We've been to Chicago. In other words, we have standards, and when Big D's finally came along, it met the criteria and then some. Try this on for size—a quarter-pound kosher beef dog (or a killer veggie dog, if you're, like, a Communist or something) grilled up and served on a substantial potato bun (also grilled), topped off with basics like mustard and cheese or fresh-made toppings like Shiner chili and sauerkraut. Add some incredible hand-cut French fries and a mouth-puckering limeade and you've got a dog experience that rivals anything they've got up north. And just in case you're not sold yet, Big D's is open till 3 a.m. on the weekends, and you might even see the likes of Jerry Stackhouse chowing down if you play your cards right.

and now they are gone... at least from brick and mortar. They had a closing party on Sunday.

From their mySpace bulletin:

Don't worry, we are taking the dogs to the streets and will be available for caterings and parties of all kinds.

Check in with us at www. myspace. com/bigdsdogs, for updates on future events.

Don and his gang came to Austin last summer to sell their awsome hot dogs at an outdoor event and left town without paying their fees, never returned phone calls or emails and left me responsible for the money. Bad dog!

We stopped in today to see what all the talk was about. Man I am glad we did. THE BEST dog ever and the garlic fries just couldnt get any better! Friendly staff and clean dining. I read one post here saying they were to expensive but that couldnt be further from the truth. Something this good should cost a little more than a DQ dog! This place is by far the best in Dallas for a good old healthy dose of hot dogs and fries.

What is this, some kind of joke?

These are without doubt the worst hot dogs ever sold. I sat there yesterday feeling like a complete fool while I was trying to eat this alleged hot dog. First, it was high. It was 5.75 with no sides -for a hot dog. That's right a weenie and a hot dog bun, the bun I'll get to in a minute. I ordered the Dallas Dog. It should be renamed to the Dallass Dog, because that's precisely what it tasted like. I came, they said with "Shiner Chili", which is a bad joke at best. I guess it was on there because one of the times when everything fell off of my hot dog I did see some brown stuff that I never could even taste. On top of the, uh, chili was processed shredded cheese of concession stand quality. On top of that, was where they decided to put all the mustard. So, when you tried to get a bit you got mustard all over your face. When you tried to eat around it, everything fell off.

The fries? Don't even ask.

The bun? Burned all to hell.

Big D Dogs? Jail food.

In summary, if you want high priced crappy hot dogs served by a wise ass go to Big D Dogs today because I seriously doubt that they'll be there much longer.

Great place. No more hauling over to Home Depot for a hot dog (okeh, maybe just not as much).

Personally, I would have preferred the shop to have been located further south - hell, put it next door to the Cavern.

These dogs are the bomb! You gotta have one of the Greenville avenue dogs; I don't know what they put in that chili, but its so damn good!I've been to NY too and this is a whole different thing... and way better. The dog is grilled and so is the bun which gives it a great flavor.Me and my friends always make a stop by after partying on the weekends... hot dogs and shakes at 2am... you can't beat it!Congratulations Big D's, you deserve it!

Great food. You can find these dogs on the road, too! They have travelled from south Texas to Sturgis. Yes, THAT Sturgis of 300,000+ people.

These are legendary, and your chance to get in on the ground floor and tell your grandkids that you had the owner, Don, personally make your dog. =)

This is "one of those stops" that you'll take out-of-towners to to show them the highlights of Dallas. Enjoy!
