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.

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 place has great customer service. Very attentive. Food came out in good time and correct. Deep fried mushrooms were good. Lots of parking.

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

Its not a bad place for a quick get in and get out meal. Nothing special. Its not open every evening so you have to check to see when they are open if you want to eat dinner there.
