The $14 Hot Dog

Robb Walsh of the Houston Press visited the new wine bar and restaurant Max's Wine Dive, which serves a $14 hotdog called the "Texas Haute Dog": "a grass-fed beef frankfurter on a Kraftsmen bun, topped with "house-made" pickled jalapeños, venison chili, cotija cheese and crispy fried onions that look remarkably like the Durkees canned onions of green bean casserole fame. The dog is served on top of a pile of hand-cut frites (that's French for French fries) that have been garnished with more venison chili."

I want to say "Texas eats, New York City prices" but I don't think we have any hot dogs that expensive here! (Burgers, now that's a different story altogether.)
