Recently, my daughter and I began a quest to find a good hot dog in Houston. Until a couple of years ago, we didn't really know what a good dog was. Then we ate at Gray's Papaya in New York and our eyes were opened. Now, we're hot dog snobs, and most dogs disappoint us. But, our quest led us to City Eats in Kingwood, where the dogs are imported from NY. We learned that they don't have a fixed location on North Park drive, although they do frequently have a hot dog cart there. But, the small shop itself can be found at 4003 Rustic Woods Drive, which is south of North Park drive on Lake Houston Parkway. To truly sample their hot dogs, we got 'em plain and added only mustard or ketchup to suit. They easily serve the best dog in Houston by miles and miles. Juicy dogs that pop when you bite 'em, like they are supposed to. And, we didn't even try the chili-cheese fries or other delights on the menu. At the owner's recommendation, we had Italian ices for dessert. I can only describe them by saying that we will never again visit without having an Italian ice for dessert. It's not fancy. It's not expensive. But, boy is it good. I hope they expand to a strip mall near me, but until they do we will keep making the journey. Go, eat, enjoy.
Pros: Best Hot Dog
Cons: they're only in Kingwood
