There is nothing really special about the restaurant except they make REALLY GOOD hot dogs. And that is all they serve. There are only 9 tables in this tiny place and there is a steady stream of folks coming in for take out. We grew up eating hot dogs "all the way". That means it comes with mustard, onions, chili,...

I got a couple slaw dogs all the way (slaw, chili, onions, and mustard) it was awesome. The chili tastes very good, unlike the local hotdog chain. The place is small on the inside and it's not in the best part of town. But don't pass this place by Bc of location or looks. They only take cash, but they... More

Austins is good everytime. You prolly think it's just hotdogs but I've spent some change on dogs on the East coast. Love vendor cart dogs like Sabrett or Hebrew National but in lieu of those, Austins is what you get here. Chili is good and they have Hotter Texas Pete. It matters. No Sriracha rooster sauce yet. Small joint, expensive... More

I love the slaw, cheese, and chili dogs. I can remember eating austins hot dogs twenty years ago. They have the best chili in town compared to their competitors.

I always get the chili cheese dogs because their chili is amazing. They use shredded cheedar and steam the buns. My husband swears by the slaw dogs. The sweet tea is also some of the best around. Joey and his staff are friendly. There is usually a line every Saturday. 1000 times better than that other hotdog place in town... More

I have lived in Anderson all my life. I stumbled upon Austin's hotdogs 23 years ago. This is the only place I go for a hotdog. The bun is warm, the wiener plump, the chili is lean and packed with a punch of flavor in every bite. The staff is very friendly. The sweet tea is out of this world!... More

TASTY, piping hot and good chili. Friendly staff. Small, clean brightly lite place. Not enough room for large groups, though.
