One sign that you're going to have a stellar meal, a truly Dallas meal, is a bag of takeout that's got wooden sticks poking out of it like a bat with nails in it. Lakewood Landing's sharp corn dog holders can't be contained by a to-go sack, so they jab out as dangerous as a medieval weapon. Inside are Dallas treasures: long Rudolph's Market dogs (from the oldest butcher shop in Dallas) armored by a charred orange batter. Frozen corn dogs have a batter that tastes burnt and a frank that has a sickly tinge; Lakewood Landing knows better: Their hot dogs sing with beef flavor and send juices into the salty-crunch of its casing. Immerse corn dogs immediately in French's yellow mustard. This is iconic bar food in our city.
