'Tis clearly the season for food trucks to go brick and mortar. Following the lead of The Eatsie Boys, Goro & Gun (née The Modular) and others that have made the leap, Good Dog Hot Dogs hinted last Friday that it would soon be sitting on solid ground. And it's now been confirmed.

Owners Daniel Caballero and Amalia Pferd have leased the Studewood Street bungalow left vacant by The Big Mamou when it closed in February, just a few blocks north of the soon-to-come Yucatan Taco Stand, as first reported by Eater.

The pair said that they plan to make a few cosmetic changes and add refrigeration equipment and a draft beer cooler before they open to the public in time for football season's September start. Expect menu items on top of their signature gourmet 'dogs and simple sides, as well as a rotating selection of Texas craft beers and wines. 

In the meantime, the Good Dog food truck will roll out these next few months only for caterings, events and occasional pop up shifts, with a more regular road schedule slated for the future.
