Up Onion Creek without a paddle!
In search of a cool patio to relax and hang out with some friends we settled on Onion Creek (3106 White Oak). They always have cool beer specials, like $2 Red Stripes on Thursday, and we walked into a $1 Pearl beer trap. And what goes better with cheap beer (Pearl was originally brewed in San Antonio) than some hot dogs?
We take on the Perro Caliente, a hot dog covered with white cheddar, jalapenos, tomatoes, onions, and bacon. It was muy delicioso. The other concoction we had was the "Freak Dog", Frito Pie on a hot dog. Fuck yes! We drank so much $1 beer on top of those awesome dogs that we built a little Pearl pyramid. Yes we are those people.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
