“Hot dog heaven!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Great atmosphere- very family friendly. Food is amazing (try the double happiness sandwich, and wash it down with a Das Boot).

Outstanding beer selection!

Nice place for a date... or just to go eat

“"Great experience"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Have been to this establishment a few times and tried a few different items on the menu each time and have enjoyed everything. Who would've thought a hot dog with ranch slaw, avacado, onions and peppers would be so delicious! The staff was very friendly. We did wait quite awhile for our drinks and would've ordered another beer had we been asked but it was a saturday afternoon and the restaurant was very busy. They also have live music on saturday afternoons which is very fun! Will definitly continue eating at this charming locally owned restaurant.

“Weird but Delicious Hamburgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Ever tried a peanut butter hamburger? Delicious. Ever tried a hamburger stuck between 2 donuts? Double Delicious. These 2 burgers are a must try for everyone.

“A Great Shelter From the Storm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

My wife and I overnighted at the La Quinta after the first wave of snow Feb 21 and searched downtown for a "local" place to eat. The only place open, with cars parked in front of the banks of snow was the Kharma Dog. It looked a little iffy from the street. It was 8:30 pm, we were hungry after our drive up from Leander, Texas and we took a chance. While we waited for our food we struck up conversations with a fellow who loves spas and a gal who teaches at the local university, while I had a great IPA beer. The food took a long time to prepare but was WORTH THE WAIT. I had the Philly Tube Steak which was hemi orgasmic and my wife had the Cheese Burger which was a top 10 burger. We also talked with the wife side of the owners which rounded out a great experience.

“Great hotdogs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Love this place. Chili dogs are great with spicy chili and good mustard relish. Cannot beat their shoestring fries. Great beer selection. Unique atmosphere.
