If you like hotdogs and chili you’ll enjoy Texas Hotdogs. I personally would be fine with .99 Sheetz dog.

A old school dinner looking place with little parking. The dogs were good but not great. The cheese ball were not good. It is a decent place with good prices but nothing out of the norm.

Celebrating 100 years of business in 2018. Nostalgic diner orinally established in 1918. Located in Downtown Altoona, PA. Known for its famous Chili Dogs and a Texas Macaroni served smothered in Cheese and Chili Sauce. Family owned and operated by Members of the Lamont/George family for 100 years. Stop in for the delicious icy cold draft Rootbeer. Homestyle chili and fresh soups too. Prices are very reasonable.
