National Korean corn dog restaurant chain Two Hands is opening its first Austin-area location this month. The new restaurant will be found in Round Rock at 201 University Oaks Boulevard, Suite 540. It had been pegged to open on July 28 but it’s been delayed to sometime in mid-August, as reported by Community Impact.
The chain is known for its Korean-style corn dogs — where franks are bettered, deep-fried, and placed on a stick — and often, the links are filled with cheese or covered in potatoes and served alongside dipping sauces. Two Hands’s menu includes the classic corn dog with seasoning and a ranch sauce; there are also versions that are spicy, with potatoes, with rice puffs, one with bean powder, and an American-styled one. There’s also vegan mozzarella and sausages. Then there are box sets of mix-and-match corn dogs. There’s a strong array of boba drinks as well as slushes, fries, and sodas.
The company started in Los Angeles in 2019. Along with stores in California, Arizona, Utah, Oklahoma, etc., there are a bunch of locations in Dallas and Houston. The business is not related to New York-based Australian cafe Two Hands, which has an Austin location.
Another Austin place for Korean-style corn dogs is the chain Oh K Dog, which has two Austin locations.
