Editorial review from Citysearch 10/10/2012

Let's be realistic, if you came to the Hot Dog Shop you're most likely didn't google ""Gourmet Hot Dogs of Houston"". So, if you show up expecting this to be a place to bring your kids or your churchgoing parents or grandparents, you've made an odd decision.\r \r Upon first approach, it looks like a dive. Would you like to know why it looks like a dive? It is a dive. It has a mild odor of sewage, especially if you walk around the East side of the building to get to the front door. It's awful, really. But that's okay - as soon as you get inside the sewage smell is gone and now it smells more like your grandma's house might... that is, if your grandma lived in the same house for 30 years and smoked inside the entire time. I think smoking is only allowed past the divider between the kitchen area and the bar area - but that divider is really just 2 large open double doorways. \r \r This might look like a bad review but it's really not. I love the place. I'm not huge on the hot dogs, but I just think it's tough to really distinguish a hot dog from any other hot dog - I feel the same way about wine. The barbeque baked potato is my go-to, and it's always ready in about 2 minutes and piping hot. I like beer a lot, too. The atmosphere in the bar room is just what it should be - kind of an old country saloon... if you ever went to Blanco's in the old days, I'd say this is pretty reminiscent of that. Good stuff.\r \r I originally came her with a bunch of buddies who worked on rigs and had shops out there, so that's the kind of clinetele you should be expecting why you show up. Depending on the day, there might be lingerie girls walking around or shuffle board tournaments. \r \r So... in summary... it's pretty terrific and one of the only bars in this part of town that I feel this way about. more

Dingy Eatery 3/15/2012

This place is close to my office and I have gone twice because I was willing to give the place a second chance. I did not like my ham and cheese hoagie the first time I went but by coworker was having a burger and I wished I had gotten that instead. Well - I went back for a simple cheeseburger today and it was okay - the meat was a little dry and not flavorful. The fries were nothing special either. The place itself seems icky and you are allowed to smoke in the place. Needless to say I went back to work with cigarettle smoke in my hair! The floors are very dirty and the tablecloths have cigarrette burns and need to be replaced. I would not go back but was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt because it had so many good reviews. more

I am shocked 3/15/2012

I am shocked that this place gets such great reviews for food. With the old grease smell from the outside in, to the smell of the bathrooms and bleach when you walk in mixed with the fact that smoking is still allowed in this place. The people are nice but the food is disgusting. I have been there twice as I thought that maybe my first trip was unfairly judged and I needed to give it a second chance. The fries have the texture of being cooked twice but thats because the oil is over used and considering the timeing from your order and receiving your meal, you would think that the fries would be hot. The burgers have no flavor and veggies on the side are puny and limp and the shrimp poboy is made with frozen prepackaged shrimp. The ham sandwich is also terrible. The drink machine leaves the drinks with an after taste that screams clean me and the place just makes you walk out feeling dirty and smelly. My coworkers make comments like, I need a shower and I need to wash my hands. No kidding, people know where you have been when you walk in the building because of the odor coming off your body. Really people? My boss hung a note on the bathroom door because we were all sick that stated ""Complaint Department, Flush after each Complaint""........... Seriously, gross. Like I said the people that work there are nice and friendly but the food should never get reviews like this. more

Business Booms in H Town! 2/12/2009

With all the strange comings and goings of chain eatiers, it's nice to come back to Houston to my favorite hangout. I have been in the oil business for 20 years and had always called The Hot Dog Shop ""my place"". I moved to Alaska for 2 years but I'm back, and yes ""my place"" is still churning out the ""good stuff""! Stopped in with the all the troops from the office to see most all of the same friendly faces hard at work. One of the brothers even remembered my special 1/2 Italian Beef 1/2 Italian Sausage Po Boy (not on the menu)! As they say...and trust me Alaska is tough, there is no place like home!!! Don't forget; know the lunch routine, be ""order ready"", you don't want them to go soup natzi on you! They have added bands most every Saturday night, nice addition Hot Dog Shop!!! Pros: Home town goodness! Cons: They don't deliver out of town, but will for groups at lunch here in H Town! more

Pure Texas Fun! 2/12/2009

I visit this hide-a-way at least 4 times a week to get my Vienna Beef Dog fix! Lots of Chicago style food, plus all kinds of other goodies. They have a great bar with things going on ALL THE TIME. Yes they do allow smoking, but have a wonderful clean NO Smoking area as well. Super busy during lunch, but I never wait more than 10 minutes for a good homecooked meal. The staff treats you New York Deli Style, so expect lots of noise, and inner action! I believe they have blue plate specials all 7 days. In and out for under $10.00, great value for Texas size menu items! Anyone remember Gilly's from urban cowboy??? Sort of a small honkytonk version of that, plain ole Texas fun! Pros: 101 menue items, all good! Hours 5:30am to 2:00am the next day! Cons: Parking at lunch is tight at times, but worth the carpooling! more
