Founded by Moustafa Eissa in Houston, food truck-based business Mad Dogs opened in its first brick-and-mortar store in Austin—in the same building as dessert shop Midnight Cravingz.

Mad Dogs offers halal hot dogs, which refers to the preparation of foods in accordance with Islamic practices.

The menu features loaded hot dogs, such as the Elote Dog that comes topped with roasted cream corn, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese and cilantro.
