Angry Dog

2726 Commerce St. Dallas, TX 75226 | Downtown & Deep Ellum | 214-741-4406

Location Description:

We're reluctant to use the phrase "fancy dive," but the Angry Dog is dark with long tables, mismatched chairs and a wooden bar that runs almost the length of the restaurant. The name comes from its specialty--an all-beef hot dog with a choice of toppings. But the burger (which you can build yourself with a menu of extras) and the chicken-fried chicken sandwich are good, too. You'll find out after only a few bites why we've heaped so many awards on them over the years. You can wash down each bite with one of their 80-plus beers or with anything from their full bar. The Angry Dog also serves its own ice tea, which is a combination of raspberry and regular teas blended locally.
