And now, the food! We wanted to start the year out right, by promoting a local small business and one of our absolute favorite Houston-only restaurants is YoYo’s Hotdogs!! YoYo’s is a small hotdog stand that opens at night in various parts of the city. Most notably, YoYo’s can be found in Rice Village, at 5555 Morningside Drive after 9 p.m. on the weekends.
Brand New Houston has been enjoying YoYo and his one-of-a-kind hotdogs for many years now and what we’ve noticed is that the lines keep growing, but the quality never changes. YoYo himself is a former sushi chef who probably made a bomb ass hotdog in his kitchen one day and decided it was too good to keep to himself and so he blessed the streets of Houston with his magnificent concoction. That’s a Brand New Houston created story, but it sure sounds like a great birth of the best hotdog ever created.
Now, I know most of you are pretty familiar with the standard hotdog. A little mustard and ketchup, maybe even some relish. We’ve even been a bit adventurous at times and have put a little barbeque sauce on a grilled dog. Well throw all of that away and allow yourself to enter a new world of hotdogs. Don’t be picky, don’t even look at the ingredients if you think you might be scared away (unless you have allergies, then definitely look at the menu). There’s only 1 item on the menu: the hotdog, it comes fully loaded, and that’s exactly how you should try it. * View deliciousness below.
For those that are curious and down for whatever, the “Fully Loaded” hotdog is topped with cream cheese, spicy mustard, curry ketchup, grilled onions, crunchy fried onions, honey mayo, and Sriracha sauce. Its delicious, and despite how it sounds, its not spicy, its just FLAVORFUL! We have taken the wimpiest and most basic of eaters to visit YoYo and they have devoured every bite of their dog with dreams of YoYo hotdogs every night afterwards. YoYo’s hotdogs surpasses cuisines and types of eateries, it is truly for everyone, which is exactly why it had a 5 star rating on Yelp with over 200 reviews!
YoYo is just a sweet man following his hotdog dreams by allowing us to indulge in the best hotdog ever created. He might not remember you because he makes over 1,000 hotdogs a night, but he sure will treat you like family. So, next time you’re leaving a local Houston bar, club, show, or party and you’re getting that 2 a.m. food craving, go to YoYosHotDogs.com and find out where YoYo’s stand is and Uber there immediately. Seriously, don’t drive if you’re drunk or tipsy because you can literally buy 2,500 YoYo hotdogs with the $10,000 it will cost you to fight a DWI charge! So go eat the best hotdogs and never see the basic baseball hotdog the same way ever again!
This year in 2017, Brand New Houston and New Food Houston want to bring you the best dishes in the city as we were so blessed to do in the last 2 months of 2016. While we won’t discriminate against chain restaurants or Houston transplants that provide our city with truly delicious and quality meals, our goal is to personally promote great Houston based restaurants as much as possible. As a Houston based company ourselves, it’s so important to support each other. We wish you all a wonderful year and we hope to grow exponentially with your help and feedback!
Stay Trill, Spread Love, and Be The Wave!
