James Coney Island

701 Town and Country Houston, TX 77027 | Greenway Plaza | 713-973-9143

Location Description:

You can get an old-fashioned cheese coney here, or you can get an authentic Chicago-style hot dog topped with the traditional tomato, pickle, pepper, onion and celery salt. Vienna Beef, the biggest hot dog maker in Chicago, ships all the ingredients to Houston, from the natural-casing franks to the poppy seed-covered Mary Ann Bakery buns. So the dog you eat here is exactly like the one you get in the Windy City. If you've never had a Chicago hot dog before, you owe it to yourself to try this American classic -- especially now that you don't have to fly to O'Hare to get one.
