Man Bites Dog Opens Second Location in Austin, Texas

Just months after opening its first brick-and-mortar location on Burnet Road, Man Bites Dog is set to open its second restaurant in the Corners Shopping Center at 3005 South Lamar.  This hot dog hot spot has been on the hunt for a place in South Austin ever since it closed its original trailer location on South First. 

The new 1,262 square-foot space will offer the same hot dogs, corn dogs and sides (not to mention quality service and relaxed atmosphere) as the Burnet location.  It will also offer a selection of board games and a TV for movie and sports fans alike.

The hot dogs at Man Bites Dog walk the line between gourmet and ridiculous. The Greek Dog, a special- turned-menu-favorite, offers a Merquez lamb sausage, topped with tzatziki sauce, tomatoes, diced onions, olives, cucumber sand feta cheese, and the Hair of the Dog boasts a bacon-wrapped, deep-fried, all-beef frank, topped with homemade chili, cheddar cheese, Tabasco sauce and a fried egg.  Classic chili-cheese dogs,Chicago-style dogs and house-dipped corn dogs are also favorites, along with signature items like Pulled-Pork Mac N’ Cheese and the Howler, an open-faced chili cheese corn dog.

Man Bites Dog was awarded Runner-Up for “Best Hot Dog” and Runner-Up for “Best Street Food” in the Austin Chronicle’s 2011 Restaurant Poll.

Each dog is wrapped in a kolache-style bun baked fresh by Austin’s Kolache Shoppe.  Vegetarian dogs and chili, kosher franks and gluten-free buns are also available.

A selection of beer will also be available at the new location, which will feature happy hour specials each night of the week.

The South Lamar Man Bites Dog is expected to open in early December.
