Food Fridays: Wiener Power at Hoffman Hots {Review}

Food Fridays:
First of all, I'm not a weiner-kind of girl...

WAIT - Let me rephrase - I don't really like hot dogs. I'll score one at a Rangers game about once a year and then I'm good until next season. However, when I asked my son lately where he'd like to eat BESIDES Chick-Fil-A, he responded with "hot dogs." Since he loves going over "The Big D Bridge" (Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge) and I couldn't bare the thought of hitting up the Sonic, we made the best of both worlds work and hit up Hoffman Hots.

I'll tell you I wasn't quite sure what to expect since I had done no research except what Google had done to get me there, we parked in the dirt parking lot of the up-and-coming (still very much coming) Trinity Groves and made our way in.

Food Fridays: Wiener Power at Hoffman Hots {Review}

Wow - it was crowded and only on a Tuesday at this kitchy, little diner spot. But we bellied up to the line and made our way through to make our first order for a Oreo Milk Shake (we decided if we were going to enjoy this experience, it was going to include the whole enchilada.) We then checked out the creatively concise menu and chose to get a little of it all:

  • Asian dog
  • Sweet and smokey dog
  • good 'ole plain
  • mac n cheese
  • tator tots
  • asian slaw 
  • Triple XXX rootbeers
  • Totalling around $40 (these better be good dogs!)
Seating did not come easy and thankfully, I had only the four-year old who could sit on the stool booths along the wall we'd claimed (babies in carried or boosters, this might not be the place for you). It didn't take too long and we had our food. Let the fun begin. 

All in all, it was good. My son was excited to eat the mac, which tasted like a run-of-the-mill Velveta kind of stuff, classic tator tots and an ok Asian slaw. The dogs were the standouts in the lineup and they should be - with the Sweet and Smokey claiming the prize for the reason I'll go back to this place #1. Made with a kielbasa, their proprietary bun like you've never had, a sweet glaze and a gouda-pimento cheese with bacon, it was really good stuff. Like the kind of stuff you drive to when you want to be really bad and eat a good hot dog.  When we return I can't wait to try out the outdoor benches and perhaps a real beer and maybe just the big kids next time. It's fun and worth the drive to see and taste where Dallas is going in the future! Hoffman Hots 340 Singleton Dallas, Texas 75212 (214) 760-9977
