About this Business
From Our Editors
Wild About Harry's all-beef hot dogs and frozen custard have garnered a stream of accolades since the shop opened in 1996, accruing esteem to be called one of the four providers of "The Great Hot Dogs of Dallas" in 2011 by the Dallas Observer. The eponymous Harry is a transplant from Hollis, Oklahoma, where his mother, Sarah Frances Coley, cooled sweltering dustbowl summers with sweatbands sculpted from her thick, homemade frozen custard. Honoring her ability to sweeten life during the Great Depression, Harry uses his mother's egg-yolk rich recipe as the foundation for a rotating menu of nearly 50 flavors, whose breadth enables customers hone in on their own sweet spot. Chili appears on the menu of 10 polish sausages, vegetarian franks, and traditional wieners, which noticeably omit ketchup from all but one of their topping combinations, and stars in the southwestern favorite Frito pie. The parlor's glowing pink neon is a beacon to families, who line up at the coral pink Knox Street shop before settling with their melting spoils on shady benches out front.
