There is something delightfully summery about corn dogs: hot dogs covered in cornmeal batter and deep-fried to sweet-savory perfection, all on a handy stick. It’s reminiscent of state fairs and street festivals and carnivals. The portions work well for a meal or a snack too.

And, luckily, in Austin, there are four restaurants and trucks offering stellar corn dogs, from classics to Korean-style.

Frazier’s Long and Low

The retro bar’s Americana menu includes two types of corn dogs. The meat dog is great, pairs well with drafts of beers, and comes with an optional but well-recommended spicy cheese sauce. Then there’s the vegetarian version that still tastes great. (2538 Elmont Drive, East Riverside-Oltorf)

Oh K Dogs

It’s all about Korean corn dogs at both Austin locations of the national restaurant, entailing all sorts of variations. The base can either be a hot dog, cheese (!!!), or half-half (!!!!). For a pleasant pully texture, make sure to add some cheese. After the batter-draped core is deep-fried, there are optional add-ons like diced potatoes, additional cheese, and even squid ink. (6969 Airport Boulevard, Suite 133, Highland, takeout orders can be placed online; H-Mart’s Food Court, 11301 Lakeline Boulevard, Suite 124, Lakeline)

Mama Fried

Barbecue truck LeRoy & Lewis spun off a whole second truck dedicated to loaded fries plus other like dishes, which include foot-long corn dogs, served with mustard and ketchup. (Armadillo Den, 10106 Menchaca Road, Far South Austin, Uber Eats deliveries can be placed online)

The Corn Dog Company

The national food truck chain is dedicated to all things corn dogs and made its Austin debut last year. The namesake item is made with a footlong frank drenched and deep-fried cornbread batter that is finished off with honey, ketchup, and mustard. There’s a smaller version and a Korean iteration covered with panko breadcrumbs and sugar. (Thicket Food Park, 7800 South First Street, Far South Austin; South Austin Beer Garden, 10700 Menchaca Road, Far South Austin)

Vic & Al’s

Italian truck Patrizi’s opened this Cajun restaurant just down the street. Among the menu’s changing items is the evergreen smaller corn dogs that come in orders of three with drizzles of ketchup and mustard, served on a loose bed of red cabbage. (Armadillo Den, 10106 Menchaca Road, Far South Austin)

Skinny’s Off Track

The casual bar serves up little plump corn dogs as well, paired with spicy ketchup, which would pair very well with its frosty Sunkist Cooler cocktail with whipped cream. (1806 East 12th Street, Central East Austin)
