#1 Hot Dog Food Truck
Welcome to Cowtown Dogs, where every dish is brimming with flavor and fresh ingredients. Our mobile food truck came into existence simply because a couple of guys really loved hot dogs and thought the DFW metroplex should have a signature recipe. This revelation sparked the idea for the Original Texas style hot dog and introduced a new standard for regional hot dogs. Come try us out!
The Cowtown Dogs Concept
Dallas-Fort Worth is the only major area in the United States without a specialty hot dog. If you look at L.A., Atlanta, Chicago, NYC, Detroit, or anywhere else– they have a hot dog that represents the area and the people who live there. It becomes a symbol of the their city. DFW doesn’t have that, and we think that’s a shame because Texas is a unique state with bold and enterprising folks. That’s why we created a hot dog that is special to this place and represents Texans.
Meanwhile, our competitors are set on making Chicago hot dogs, but the problem is– that’s just not Texas. You’ll see a lot of local restaurants using bland beef or dogs with natural casings. These are okay, but they’re not original.
More importantly, our research showed us that 70% of Texans don’t like the natural casing, and being that this is Texas– 100% BEEF is the only way to go! Our food is specifically crafted to fit the tastes of Texans and create a one-of-a-kind experience.
A Different Kind of Food Truck
We’ve sampled hot dogs from across the nation. We’ve tested a vast variety of hot dogs in the DFW Metroplex. This helped us see what’s out there and how we can offer the best possible hot dog.
We’re nothing like your average fast-food establishment. Our food won’t leave you feeling greasy or bloated. Our hot dogs and hot links contain only the finest ingredients. Cowtown hot dogs are filling and endlessly satisfying. Not to mention, once you try our sloppy Eddie Chili you’ll be hooked. It’s Delicious!
Here at Cowtown Dogs, we have no desire to imitate any other state in the nation. Texas is special and it’s time we stand out. We’re old school. Some of our greatest traditions started at the Fort Worth Stockyard, and Cowtown Dogs is paying homage to the cowboys of old with high-quality meat cuts and fresh toppings. So come fill your belly with a taste of Texas.

The Best Ingredients
Right from the start, we knew we could only use the best ingredients if we were going to set the standard for hot dogs in Texas. No ingredient could play a supporting role. After a lot of research and taste testing, we’re confident that we’ve found the perfect ingredients to make your taste buds dance.
We’re positive that our hot dogs are the best around because we sampled 30 different brands before landing on our premium 100% beef hot dogs. They’re sourced directly from a trusted company that has been known for offering high quality meat products since 1933. But a great hot dog doesn’t stop with the meat. They also season their hot dogs with a proprietary blend of spices and smoke them over hickory wood to ensure each hotdog has an exquisite flavor.
We also use delicious brioche buns and rolls for all of our dishes because the bread sets the tone for the overall flavor of the hot dog. These buns have a rich flavor creating a high-quality base that contributes to the wonderful flavor of our Cowtown dogs and Sloppy Eddie Chili Sandwiches.
Next, we dress our Cowtown dogs with fresh toppings which turn our hotdogs into real showstoppers. Our mustard is sourced from the only company that utilizes the traditional stone ground mill method in the country since 1900. We also offer an array of toppings including, marinated and grilled jalapeños, sweet Dublin onions, and our hot ‘n spicy onion pepper mix. However, our real crowd favorite is the Sloppy Eddie chili. This delicious topping combines the best parts of Sloppy Joe and chili.
