I love a Hot Dog joint they offers HOT DOGS... You name it they got the topping and selection for you. This is a local Fav and a family business from generation to generation. They take pride and will be happy to chat while grilling up your meal. We sit at the bar for it was a packed house and... More

My husband and I always come here and I am not sure why. I think it's because he loves it and doesn't pay attention to the rude staff. I remember on past visits the staff being kind of off putting but being someone that's worked in the food industry I give a pass it's summer they are busy I get... More

I would truly describe Capt'n Franks as an institution. My family and I have been enjoying this place for years and recently while my wife and I vacationed in Corolla, we made certain to get to Capt'n Franks for lunch one day. If you enjoy a good hot dog and fries every now and then, then this is the place... More

I have been eating here for 30 years! This place should be on diners, drive ins and dives!! We eat there a couple times a week when we are vacationing in OBX!

Nothing special. The staff don't have much of a personality to say the least. Being from Southern Ohio, I requested my dog to have sauce. The cashier looked at me with complete disgust and said "You mean chilli?" Obviously that's what I meant. Ah, not impressed at all.

If you like hotdogs you must visit, any way you can think of to top your dog you can get it here. Parking is a little tough but worth it for the experience of Captain Franks.

Not much to say other than a great place for a cold beer and any kind of hot dog every topping that you could ever imagine. They also offer a selection of Eastern Carolina BBQ and a dinner menu but we've only been there for lunch on several occasions. You stand in line and give you order to the cashier.... More

Took my mother there "again" for lunch, while vacationing (she's now 82). it's always been one of her favorite places to go. Been going with her to Capt'n Franks now probably at least 25 years. She loves their food and just makes her day to be taken there! While we were there, place was quite busy with customers, yet we... More
