My first job was at Texas Hot Dogs and I am so happy to say that they still taste the same. The special sauce just makes the dogs and if you like hot dogs, you have to try them. My husband is a Yocco's fan (Allentown), but of course I think THD are better. The THD in downtown Altoona is definitely a throwback and you just have to go there to experience it!

We stop in and get Texas Hot Dogs every time we visit Altoona. They are the best! And my husband has to get the hot cheese balls! Wish we had one in Lancaster.....

Every time I go here with my wife or with my wife and grand kids, it's like stepping back in time. I love the old "retro" decor with the Lou Gehrig "Iron Man Batteries" poster, the longhorn horns on the wall, the big Hires Root beer barrel, the counter with built in stools, booths, and the like. I don't know what people expect when they come here - they sell hot dogs! We like them and will continue to go back time and time again. The dogs are good.

Texas hotdogs is a wonderful place to get hotdogs. They have cheeseburgers which are pretty good and they make one of the best peanut butter fudge in Altoona!
