Holy crap, who'd think a hot dog place would be this good?!?!?!

It was close to the hotel and highly ranked on tripadvisor so we went with it. Never expected the greatness that it delivered. They are hot dog artists. I had the Whoa Nellie with brisket on it. Amazing. Delicious. Onion rings that were so good. Everything tasted fresh and delicious. Great beer... read more

It had a younger, cooler, calm crowd. I'm not young or cool and only sometimes calm but I felt comfortable and fit in fine. The hot dogs were excellent & I don't say that lightly about food (read my reviews). Service is fine. Price=cheaper side. Nice little place.

Dirty Franks has fantastic hot dogs. Their funnel fries are a must have! It is always busy but it is worth the wait. There are at least 25 different kinds of hot dogs with every topping imaginable.

I have never been a big fan of hot dogs, but Dirty Franks was delicious. The staff was very friendly and very helpful with recommending what kind of hot dogs to get. I only got two hot dogs and I was full! I would recommend getting your hot dogs charred. It gives a better crunch. :) And the best thing... More

Visited Dirty Frank's after seeing all the reviews. We went on a Saturday during lunch so the place was a bit crowded, we decided to take it to go. They were quick about so the wait want bad at all. Some of the best hot dogs we've had. Really enjoyed the Chicago dog and Puff the magic popper.

This place rules. They have a ton of hot dogs, including plenty of vegan options. I ordered the Razzle Dazzle, which was a vegan dog (my choice), vegan cream cheese (dairy option too), roasted peppers and onions. It was amazing. I probably could have eaten 3. I also got a side of fried leeks, which I discovered are far superior... More

I work near this place downtown, it has a small dining room, which in the evening gets filled up fast, but the menu is awesome, a great and ecletic collection of dawgs, topping, and interesting variations you won't find elsewhere, they also have some really good and interesting draft beer and bottled beer selections. Overall, try to go on non... More

We stopped by after church for a quick lunch. I ordered the spicy boldly Mary with peeper infused vodka and it had a great flavor. We started with the special fries that had cheese bacon etc. Definitely big enough to split. There is a great variety of hot dogs including vegetarian offerings. If you don't see the exact combination of... More

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
