If you’re in Deep Ellum and looking for a savory meal, Luscher’s Red Hots is the place to go. Tucked neatly into a corner on Commerce Street, this new neighborhood spot boasts a menu full of Chicago-style meats and sandwiches sure to satisfy. The restaurant itself is simple, but that’s part of the charm; a spacious interior leaves plenty of room for dining indoors, while the attached patio filled with wooden benches tempts diners to eat outside when the weather is nice. The walls are decorated with an assortment of framed memorabilia that hints at the restaurant’s history, and you’re likely to hear Classic Rock favorites playing through the speakers while you eat. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, making this the perfect spot for enjoying a laid-back meal with friends.

Luscher's offers ample seating inside, along with an enclosed patio for outdoor dining.

The Post Oak Red Hot is the closest thing to a real Chicago dog you'll find in Dallas. 

Luscher’s is proud to offer authentic Chicago-style meats, most of which they make in-house. They pride themselves on using all-natural, local meats and breads, and even their drinks are sourced from local, natural vendors. Their menu features a variety of options, but for the most authentic experience, head straight for the hot dogs. At Luscher’s, they’re made with a tasty variety of franks, sausages, and hot links, and piled high with condiments designed to perfectly complement the meat. For a classic dog, order the Post Oak Red Hot, which features a smoked frank, onions, tomatoes, pickled pepper, and mustard on a traditional poppy seed bun. If you’re a fan of spicy food, the Meat Fight is a popular choice that’s sure to please; it boasts cheddar-stuffed spicy sausage topped with horseradish pickles, grilled onions, barbecue sauce, and creamy slaw. Or, treat yourself to something deliciously messy with their Corn Chip Chili Dog, which takes the classic chili dog up a notch by throwing crunchy Fritos into the mix. The prices at Luscher’s are wonderfully wallet-friendly, with most dogs starting at around $5, so if you can’t make up your mind, just order two.

Luscher's menu is stacked with delicious options at affordable prices, including rotating weekly specials. 

Because Luscher’s also serves cold beer, it’s a great place to go when you’re craving a brew; their hand-cut fries and onion rings go particularly well alongside a cold one on a nice day. They have rotating daily specials worth checking out, so stop by during the week and enjoy a meal and a beer for less than you’d pay for most happy hours. Or join the crowd and head there on the weekend for some quality patio time with your friends. It’s kid-friendly, and the patio is dog-friendly, so Luscher’s is sure to please just about any crowd. Since it’s in Deep Ellum, parking can be tricky, but plan ahead and you’ll be fine; even if you have to feed a meter, you won’t regret it after your first bite.
