Since 1966 there has been this kitschy lil’ place called Wild About Harry’s that is your classic malt-shop-vibe- type joint that is known for killer hotdogs and amazing custard.
I feel absolutely silly living here this long and NOT knowing about this place. It’s throwback. It’s retro. It’s just a cool place that the entire family can enjoy.
This was my first time and I was in a bit of a rush so I just grabbed your basic mustard-dog to-to. I wasn’t expecting much – as it’s just a hot dog…and I considered myself pretty well versed in the subject matter. The custard….I would wait for another day.
What I got was perhaps the best hot dog I have had in quite some time. Even though it’s just a simple mustard-dog…not piled high with crazy toppings…it was very very good. Wild About Harry’s is NOT content with just throwing some random dog on a bun. These are VIENNA BEEF dogs from Chicago and are served on the Chi-town traditional popy-seed bun. Having never had an actual Chicago dog – I was surprised. I enjoyed that dog something fierce.
The joint itself is cool and the staff are super-friendly. The atmosphere is full-on happy because…hello… it is a hot-dog and custard joint….how could you be in that place and STILL be in a bad mood?
Best Hot Dog I have had in Dallas. Period.
