“There is a reason its Ranked #1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

After you have eaten at Cow Dog, you will definitely know why it is ranked #1. Every Dog we have tried has been soo good. Dogs come loaded so be sure to take the extra napkins and offered knife and fork, unless that is you like your lunch dripping down your chin. Lunches are served on paper foil, so my wife takes paper plats to put the dogs on. Makes cutting a lot easier. During the lunch rush, good luck finding a parking place.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

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.

“OMGosh! !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

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 run by local musicians and the times are a little strange. Yeah, so is the food, but we schedule a trip to Alpine around their hours when in Ft. Davis just to be able to have one of their dogs!! Love, love, love this place :)

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