Need some heartburn! Who has the best chili dogs? Live in north Austin but can travel.
1140 Invasion St, San Marcos, TX 78666
Spec's is now $2.79 and has a killer dog inside it, decent chili and cheese, onions and jalapenos if you want them. maybe not the best but half the price of any competitor and really big.
I've been really enjoying the chili cheese dog from Man Bites Dog on Burnet. The chili varies from mild to spicy, depending on who makes it and it has no beans in it (thank God).
The hot dog itself is all beef and a good size. The bun is a kolache bun, so it's a bit sweet. The price is a steep $5.79, but it is a pretty big chili dog.
You can also ask for queso instead of shredded cheese, according to a sign I saw posted near the register last weekend.
how far do you want to travel? Sonny's place in Galveston, hands down are the best. Homemade Chili, steamed buns, beer. Check to see if they are open. It's a family run place, and sometimes they are closed for vacation.
