Great dogs and prices!!!

We have visited this a couple of times and we are never disappointed at all. The prices are reasonable and the service is always quick. This is a simple place but we absolutely enjoy it and will be back more often.

Made our first visit and it was awesome!!! My hot dog was delicious, had it with mustard, chili and slaw, and crinkle cut fries. A!so, tried the home fries and sweet potato fries, also delicious!!! In addition, had appetizers, fried pickles, they used spears rather than chips and broccoli, cheese and bacon bites. Yes, I know fried foods are not... More

This was may first visit to Famous Franks. First they use top quality meat which already makes them better than most other hot dog shops. Boars Head brand meat is worth the extra expense, but at about $2 per dog there wasn't much extra expense. My food was out quickly and it was very tasty. I could tell that its... More

You expect good dogs in New York City, but not in coastal North Carolina. They offer a large selection of dogs all by Boar's Head meats, and the two times I have been here, they have been very good. The knockwurst with sauerkraut and hot mustard was worthy of any NYC deli. I'll be back when in the area.

This is a great place that we go to for a quick lunch. Great hot dogs and sandwiches especially the Reuben and the NY Sausage hot dogs. Good Place!

Here in EC, dependably good, decent food is not something to be automatically expected. For example, we will never again try the Ruby Tuesday here in town after some ignorant and incompetent mistakes both in the kitchen and service staff -- yet other Ruby Tuesdays in other cities seem reasonably acceptable. Famous Frank's is the exception, we're glad to say.... More
