You Should Go to Moon Tower Inn; Here Are 10 Reasons Why

Dogs like this aren't born every day. Except at Moon Tower Inn.
While we are certainly excited about their newest venture, Voodoo Queen, we revisited Evan Shannon and Brand Young's first baby, Moon Tower Inn, to remind ourselves just how great it is.

Here are 10 Reasons Why You Should Visit (or revisit) as well:

10. The Dogs

First and foremost are the dogs. Moon Tower's shtick is wild game, but it really isn't a shtick at all; these guys pump out some serious game dogs. Plump and meaty with over-the-top fillings, gourmet sausages such as the wild boar -- filled with garlic, marsala and provolone; and the venison -- cased with red wine and blueberries -- will not disappoint. And if wieners aren't your thing, the burgers are just as fantastic. Oh, and their seasonal sides...ask for those, too.

9. The Crowd

Moon Tower Inn attracts an eclectic, unpretentious crowd -- from tatted-up dudes with gauges to pretty young things knocking back weenies and beer, everyone's here to have a good time.

8. It's Bicycle-Friendly

Work up an appetite with a bike ride down the bayou and into the Second Ward. Then park your bike at the rack and load up that sausage. You deserve it.

These bathroom signs are everything.
7. The Bathrooms

Bathrooms may be an odd choice for a reason to visit, but the guys have done a lot to revamp them this time around (bye-bye men's porta-potties). Plus they make us laugh every time. Tacos unite!

6. The Tap Wall

Moon Tower Inn has truly stepped up its brew game. With a 66-tap wall housed inside a shipping container, MT proudly sits among the big boys as one of the premiere craft-beer spots in the city. Plus, they are now brewing on-site, with two three-and-a-half-barrel fermentation tanks to crank out fine house brews.

5. They Have Tons of Specials

As if their massive hot dogs and 60-plus tap wall of beer weren't enough to get us over there, Moon Tower offers tons of specials, such as dollar beer nights, bogo burgers and the monthly growlers giveaway. Check their twitter account (@bdaddymeatstacks) or facebook page to follow the specials.

You gonna tell me I just waited a hour for a raw burger and a side of hipster attitude


This place is alright. It's a hotdog stand, with exotic meats. However I think this place is a bit overrated.

1) The burger I ordered had an egg on it. Isn't the yolk supposed to be runny? It was completely cooked.

2) The hotdog my bf ordered was missing an ingredient we asked for.

3) Quality beer served in small plastic cups at quality prices. Sometimes they don't have the beer you ask for.

Things like the crowd, the bathrooms, the yard, the ingredients (part of reason #10, no?) or being a hero (my bf is new to Houston - didn't happen for me) don't compensate for flawed food and tiny expensive beers.
