The Texas Dog is chili, onions and mustard. I opt out of mustard and go for ketchup and they are very tasty. Their onion rings are out of this world!!

Best dogs in town. Every time I eat a hot dog, I compare it to Texas hot dogs because they are the best in my book!

Texas Hot dogs has been around since I was a kid and it's always the same - delicious hot dogs with a variety of "fixings!" I try to stop there any time I'm in town to visit family.

Was coming back from the horse shoe curve and decided to stop here for a quick lunch. This place was great. A local guy told us how to order and the people who worked there helped us out. Maybe some locals made fun of us but I am from philly and we make fun of people when they can't order... More

these hot dogs are a specialty, but in the recent visiting, have gone down hill. buns are soggy, not so much flavor, few toppings, higher prices.

Texas Hot Dogs has been at the location near the Logan Valley Mall for as long as I can remember. The quality has never changed, and every order is made fresh. A must have if you are visiting this little city.
