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

I think they have every variation of hot dog toppings imaginable. I had the Carolina hot dog, with beans, coleslaw and bbq sauce, very good! I don't think much thought goes into their fries, seem to be the frozen crinkle cut we can get at the grocery store. If I get a chance to go again, I'd ask for my... More

We went here on a rainy day. The place was busy - and the dogs were good (i guess as good as hot dogs can be). We found the staff taking orders (and "helping" people through the line) were a bit offputting. The waitstaff (delivered the food) were very friendly...

Speedy service and tasty hot dogs. It was inexpensive and entertaining for the kids. It was a perfect spot when visiting the first in flight national park.

We always enjoy our visit to Captain Franks. Their food is quick and good. They have food other than dogs, but make sure you try their dogs. This is what they are known for. For our family on the OBX this is just a short walk so we go several times.
