For National Hot Dog Day, a Look at the Dogs of Dallas
Luscher's Post Oak Red Hots are the creation of The Grape's Brian Luscher, who started making Chicago-style dogs kissed with oak smoke last year. For now, you can find them at the White Rock Local Market on Saturdays or purchase the dogs to cook at home at Green Grocer, but we're all dreaming of his new concept slated for Gaston Avenue, which will give these dogs a permanent home.

Last year we pitted The Angry Dog against St. Pete's Dancing Marlin in a Commerce Street Chili Dog Smackdown. The approach at both these Deep Ellum spots is to go straight for the jugular. There are two primary differences: The Angry Dog is more than liberal with cheddar cheese, but St. Pete's sources its hot dogs from Rudolph's Meat Market, which offers a big smoke flavor. Ding! Ding! We have a winner. You just can't beat quality meat.

According to its Facebook page, Saturday was Wild About Harry's birthday. Happy birthday, Harry! In addition to its frozen custard, this spot has classic chili cheese and Chicago-style dogs, which is to be followed by the house-made custard. Of course. Plus, the old-school soda-fountain vibe is fun.
