Excellent, wonderful, great hot dogs... served with a smile from cool people. I would eat there 3 or 4 times a week if I lived in Alpine (check their hours and days open as they are sometimes closed).

Enjoyed these dogs a year ago, even better and more choices now. Tried the Green chiles and cheese dog with fritos on top and the German with sauerkraut this time - SO good! Open patio is dog friendly, locals and travelers enjoy visiting while eating. Good food and fun!

If you are in Alpine you should really check out the Cow Dog food truck. They serve some really good dogs at a really good price. All of this occurs in the confines of a very cool baby blue 70's square box Winnebago RV. The food truck is usually parked at the Plaine coffee shop on Holland Avenue, but it... More

Best $3 lunch in Alpine, a small hot dog with a grilled Hebrew Nat'l frank, relish, mustard & a good bun. Yay!

Cow Dogs is a unique food truck in a unique part of west TX. They offer a large selection of gourmet hot dogs, tater flops, and Frito Pie plus chips and drinks out of a 1970's light blue Winnebago. You can select your own toppings or select from one of their specialty dogs. I had their Green Chili Cheese Dog... More

My husband had the Mexican Dog, I had the Street Dog. Both were really good! They split the dog down the middle and grill it a bit then they have all types of toppings and some "signature" dogs. We really liked it!

After you have eaten at Cow Dog, you will definitely know why it is ranked #1. Every Dog we have tried has been soo good. Dogs come loaded so be sure to take the extra napkins and offered knife and fork, unless that is you like your lunch dripping down your chin. Lunches are served on paper foil, so my... More

The kids and I loved our food! They enjoyed eating outside and just the experience. But the cow dogs were delicious! There was quite a line when we were there, but it did not take to long to be served.
