It’s Memorial Day, and the grill is hot. The host smokes a pork butt, but everyone’s drawn to one thing: the pack of Red Hots that sits unopened. A guest throws them on, and soon after, they’re devoured. The pork butt is good, sure, but those Red Hots are what’s already gone. Available in retail stores and some restaurants. Luscher’s Post Oak Red Hots 2808 Greenville Ave. Dallas, Texas 75206. 214-828-1981.
Angry Dog slathers its massive all-beef dog in chili and cheese, and for $6.75—with fries—it’s one of the best deals in town. 2726 Commerce St, Dallas, TX 75226. 214-741-4406.
