Houston >Moon Tower Inn
Gourmet hot dogs and beer on tap. An expansive grungy outdoorsy unpaved patio area with wooden benches and fire puts, perfect for the hooded sweatshirt-wearing, jeans-clad crowd grubbing on everything from elk hot dogs to wild boar or duck with foie gras hot dogs on a pretzel bun. And, it's open late, which means industry (chefs included) will stop here after work.
The lines are kind of crazy but well worth the wait. The hot dogs are phenomenal.
So glad to have this hidden EaDo spot back! After a 15 month hiatus to remodel they've finally reopened, bigger and better. 66 taps and soon-to-come house made brews. Same awesome menu of hot dogs with additions made possible by the bigger kitchen. They even added more picnic tables!
We went here on a recommendation from a friend who had tried their food at a music fest in Houston.
We ordered the elk sausage, lamb and duck. It took about 1.5 hours to get our food which was really no biggie since we weren't starving to death and it was a beautiful night to sit out at the old picnic tables and drink some delicious and reasonably priced beers. So be warned--if your blood sugar is prone to dropping or you are looking for a quick meal, this ain't your place so plan accordingly and pregame with a little snackie. There is a sign up front which claims that it isn't "fast food" so "shut up and wait" or something to that effect. Very sassy.
The crowd is hipster-y. The neighborhood is dodgy. The sausages served on a pretzel roll are amazing. Priced at 6 dollars each, they were reasonable. We ordered ours with "chefs choice" on the toppings and the chef did good. It was dark out so I could not see exactly what was on each of the dogs but they were all delicious.
If you want an off the beaten path place with interesting food, I highly recommend Moon Tower Inn.
