Great hotdogs!

After a lighter dinner, some friends and I picked up late night hot dogs at Dirty Frank's. We thought the hot dogs were excellent! A variety of menu topping and meat options and a great price (some hot dog places try too much to be fancy) - what more can we ask for?! We will be back!

I've been to Dirty Frank's a couple more times. Last time, the waitress kind of seemed like we were distracting her from something more important. Tonight we had the waiter we had the first time i went there. He's still a great waiter. My West Virginia cole slaw dog was good. We got some fries to split, well done and... More

I've just recently found out about Dirty Franks from a friend of mine. There is a wait a lot of times but it's always well worth it once you taste their food! Always had great service here. I love the poppyseed buns as well!

my husband wanted to try this place so we drove from Hanover to try it. We had to pay $5.00 to park. We walked in and was told to wait. So we just stood there. Then we get yelled at and told to move out of the way. Where could we go? This place is as big as my bathroom.... More

We walked in and told the guy how many and asked how long the wait was, he said he didn't know and to scoot over away from the door so others could go in. There were 6 of us but one was to go on our lap. Well 5 guys came in and were immediately seated in front of us..... More

My niece took me here for dinner. I was pleasantly surprised by the food. All the toppings are crazy, but the chili dogs are great. I would recommend the place if you looking for something out of the ordinary. Also you have to like hot dogs. Give it a shot.

What a unique place in downtown Columbus. The hot dogs were excellent, and the fries were some of the best we've ever eaten. Their selection of hot dogs is pretty extensive. We had to go inside and put our name on a list, and then hang around outside on the sidewalk and wait for our name to be called as... More

Every time my husband and I or friends come out to Columbus, we always make a stop at Dirty Frank's. They may have a bit of a wait but there is 100% a reason why there is a wait. The hot dogs are cheap as all get out but so delicious. They don't skimp on the ingredients. The tots are... More

The toppings were plentiful and you had tons of choices. I highly recommend getting the tots as a side. I have never seen so many tots on a plate! They really pile them on and they were really good. However, the hot dog was no better than any other hot dog and their coney sauce wasn't great and their corn... More

I love, love hot dogs and was really excited to finally go to Dirty Franks...well it was a let down..my hot dog had some many sides and condiments that I could not even taste the sausage. The beers were very cold tho, which is a plus. Not sure I am coming back.
