Cool place

Very good, creative hot dogs. The special was fried pickles when I went and they were incredible. Cool atmosphere overall.. It is really more of a hot dog bar than a restaurant, which gives it it's cool vibes.

I had a hot dog called "Lara princess" and "puff the magic popper" and the two were about the best hot dogs I've ever had. If I'm ever travel near here again, it's a must stop.

I love to go here and have some beers and a couple of dogs with family or friends. The hot dogs are great, service friendly and a good selection of beers. Service is friendly and prompt. A unique experience for sure!

I spent many nights at Dirty Franks while working on my bachelor's degree so it's safe to say this place has a special place in my heart. The food is good and cheap. The drinks are creative and strong, with a focus on local beers and liquors. There is limited seating but it's worth the wait. Every aspect of the... More

Awesome staff. Awesome decor. Awesome drinks. Awesome food for everyone. This is the place to go for a quick, casual, fun meal or late night snack. The veggie dogs and brats are a great option for vegetarians. The fried leeks are a must!

Who knew that the humble frankfurter could be expanded into such an exciting and encyclopedic menu. But, in fact, this has been done. It was really fun to have lunch here. The wall decor is an assortment of hand-painted folk-art style cartoons of 70's and 80's heavy metal and hair bands plus quite a few of baseball players of the... More

I you love hot dogs like I do... Dirty Frank's is a must if you're in Columbus. It was truly hard to decided which hot dog I was going to have. Final decision came down to having a "Fire on the Rhine" dog, and a Sriracha Slaw Dog. Both were crazy good. Paired with onion rings... there isn't much better.... More

We ate a late lunch at Dirty Frank's which was still pretty full from the lunch crowd. They have a great variety of hotdogs - my favorite the West VA Slaw Dog. There home cut fries were really good too. The location is very small so not sure this would be the place for a large crowd.

Spur of the moment visit. Just in the mood for hot dogs - checked trip advisor and found this place rated high. The place is small but did not take long to get seated or to get our dogs - 4 of them! They were absolutely tasty especially the Seoul dog and the siracha slaw dog. Try this place if... More
