The down town location has a fantastic selection of dogs including vegetarian options. Our family of 4 all loved what we got and it was reasonable at $30. A must try - the funnel fries! Be warned its a small space so you may have to wait for a seat. They also have a nice selection of beers. Staff was... More

Pros: great dogs, good prices, awesome menu. Ordered Chicago dog,..amazing. Ordered Sauerkraut dog,..yep,..amazing as well. Ordered deluxe tots,...killer. Cons: small place so very little room to stretch out,....and take zantac before attacking the menu, you'll need it cause the dogs are soooo good you wont stop eating them.

Dirty Frank's is the dive bar of hot dog joints, even down to the big cans of PBR. I had a Cowgirl Carmen (coney sauce, cheese, crumbled Fritos) and a side of fries. The dog was nicely charred, the coney sauce was perfect. Being a Cali girl, I am picky about fries. These were rather In-n-Out-esque, hand cut and freshly... More

Dirty Frank's is a Columbus original. If you're from out of town, it's worth carving out a few hours for a trip to 4th Street. You'll need that time, because there is always a wait at Dirty Frank's. Truly, that is a testament to its popularity. The food is always quality, with a range of different hot dogs on the... More

I was concerned it would be slow from reading some of the other reviews, but I was in and out in under 5mins, this was about 3pm on a Friday. Got a chili dog and cowgirl Carmen and... More

Took my family here. Was excited to try it because of all the hype. Was not impressed at all. Waited on a saturday for almost an hour and a half for a table. When we did get our food i was dissappointed. Also when the bill came it was expensive for what we got. Will not go back.

This place is always crowded. It's not the biggest place to begin with, so 20 people or so makes it packed. People seem to go all gaga over this place. (Hipster hangout). I simply don't get the fuss. After all, they are hot dogs. They do have a ton of options to dress them up. I got the Puff the... More
