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.

I agree with those who have loved their Cow Dog experience. I had the Artisan--fabulous chutney and Tilamook sharp cheddar. A note for those traveling with pets: this is a food truck, but it shares a pleasant patio area with tables. You can enjoy your lunch in the shade with your pet. Advice: the "little" size was plenty.

You haven't had a hotdog till you eat one of theirs. :) I never dreamed you could enjoy a hotdog from a vending truck SOOO much. I listened to the locals and tried their Mexican Dog. What's not to like? Bacon, cheese, & salsa...yum!! But be sure to check out the website for days and hours of operation because it's... More

Great hot dogs. Lots of inventive ways of fixing them. Loved it! Watched the train station arrivals and departures for entertainment.

My first Cowdog was so good I went back later the same day for another. Truly one of the best hot dogs I've ever had. I don't live close, but if I'm ever within an hour, it's worth the drive.

We purposefully postponed our departure time so we could eat at Cow Dog and we were NOT disappointed. Truly some great hot dogs. I enjoyed the Artisan, which had some wonderful chutney and sharp cheddar cheese for a tasty delight, and hubby had a wildly good chili cheese dog, large sized. They do something special to the hot dogs, we... More

OK, this was the best hot dog I've ever had! I had the mexican when I was there. They have 2 sizes, 1 was $4 and the larger was $5.50. We spent $26 for 3 people, so it wasn't exactly cheap. We wanted to eat there a 2nd time while we were in town for 5 days, but the price... More

We picked this place to eat while in Alpine, looked good and fun. Every time we came by, it was closed. They need to change their hours sign if they're not going to be there when stated.
