63. Good Dog Hot Dogs
This cheerful modern-day mom-and-pop food truck makes hot dogs so impeccably put together they have renewed my interest in the genre. The dogs themselves are Texas-made and all-natural. The split-top buns turn wonderful when they’re butter-grilled on the outsides. Co-owners Daniel Caballero and Amalia Pferd make their own condiments (sweet and sour jalapenos, anyone?) and apply them in clever combinations. Witness their Ol’ Zapata dog: an inspired assemblage of crumbled bacon, caramelized onion, grated white cheese, jalapeno relish and a tumble of chopped tomato, all squiggled with just enough ketchup and mayo to meld the flavors and textures rather than squelching them.
