Nosh: Good Dog Houston

Texas-Cali duo, Daniel and Amalia, had a vision to bring gourmet hot dogs to Houston. They started the Good Dog concept in the form of a food truck and grew to two brick & mortar locations (Montrose and Heights) in short four years.

Daniel prides in sourcing all local ingredients and serving house-made condiments,  yes, every sauce they have!


Last week, owner Daniel welcomed us to their newest location in Montrose (1312 West Alabama Street), across the University of St. Thomas, to sample some of Good Dog’s tasty favorites! Needless to say, we were blown away by the food and the shakes.

Gulf Fish & Chips: served with fries, house tarter sauce and malt migonette
L to R: Dog of the Day (Harvest Hash), Chillin’ Dog, Chi-Town Dog

Chillin’ Dog : Beef & Chorizo Chili, Pickled Jalapeños, Diced Onions, Short Bus Mustard

Chi-Town: Fresh Tomato Sices, Dill Pickle Slices, Short Bus Mustard, Sweet Blakeslee Relish, Pickled Fresno Peppers & Celery Salt served on Poppy Seed Bun

Harvest Hash Dog: Chorizo & Egg, Seasonal Hash, House Hot Sauce, Mayo & Fried sage (Dog of the day, not available on everyday menu)

If you are like me and can’t get enough of these dogs, Good Dog’s condiments and franks are available to purchase for you to create your own at home!

Fun Fact: Good Dog’s logo is the silhouette of owner Daniel’s dachshund!

Local Veggie Dip: white bean hummus & house dukkah, veggies from Plant It Forward
Onion Rings: served with house ranch & sriracha ketchup

L to R: Apple Crumble (Shake of the Day), Cajeta & Caphin

The Montrose Good Dog has plenty of patio seating and great place to bring your family. They also have a plethora of draft beers to go with those delicious hot dogs.

We hope you plan a visit to Good Dog soon! Can’t wait for our next visit 🙂
