We always come here during our trips to the Outer Banks. The hot dogs are great with many selections to choose from. From plain to completely covered with anything you want,these dogs taste great. The French fries are a classic crinkle cut done just right, ready to salt them how you want and to dip into ketchup. We like the... More

We ate here with 3 adults & 3 kids. We enjoyed the kids meal in a frisbee! The corn dog was a hit! Also, the shrimp, fries & hush puppies were yummy, yummy. Our waitress was great, a lot of fun. We also enjoyed the playground in the back! We would definitely go back.

We visited with our toddler and found the staff to be extremely kind and helpful. The hot dogs were very good, but a little expensive. The kid's meal was relatively expensive for a hot dog and fries, but we didn't mind because the staff was so kind. Not the best hot dog stand that I've ever visited, but wasn't a... More

I guess I got my hopes up a little too much for a hot dog place. Food was average at best. Was affordable for a restaurant at the Outer Banks but overall was just not impressed.

We have been to the Outer Banks three times, staying in three different locations. We always make a stop at Capt'n Franks at some point on our trip. It's a great place for lunch with a fun atmosphere!

I have been coming to Cap't Franks for 20 some years. It's kind of a tradition to stop and grab a dog and fries to take to the beach with us for lunch. The place has sure come a long way since back in the day, now they have the great upstairs, outdoor patio. I love that it is family... More

Friendly staff. Nice, quick, casual lunch. Loved the "memorabilia" decorating the walls. Fair pricing.
