A busy place especially if a game is playing. It seemed that there was plenty of staff but to wait 30 minutes for a specialty dog in a small restaurant, I expected quicker service especially since it was to go. If you want novelty, its worth it.

Ok. This place is great. After a juggling show on a recent Friday night a group of us stopped in at about 10PM....and we had to wait for a table. The space is tiny, packed and hoppin'. The hot dogs (a huge variety) were outstanding and at $3 or so apiece you can try several. I had fries with that... More

Trying to find this place was an adventure, then being able to get a table in this small bar/restaurant took some time. The menu is huge with way too many choices. We thought prices were good. The hot dogs are average size, so most people order 2 plus sides. Our entire meal plus non-alcoholic beverages was less than $20. The... More

There wasn't many late night choices that were appealing so we found ourselves at this hot dog joint reminiscent of a Hollywood dive. The place was very cramped but with a proper seat at the bar all the hubub was to our backs. The prices were pretty steep for how much food you get. I had never had a coney... More

LIked - my hot dog was delicious. The food was served quickly by a super-friendly waitress. My 2 year old grandson dropped his hot-dog and she brought us another very quickly, free of charge. Disliked - $50 for 9 hot-dogs, one order of fries and one order of onion rings and drinks. Wow! I would definitely go again if in... More

My wife and I chose to visit this restaurant on our recent overnight stay in Columbus based on other positive reviews and weren't disappointed. We shared an order of the vegan-style deluxe tater tot-chos (tater tots covered in chili, jalapeño, tomatoes, & onions) and I had the Chicago dog along with a very spicy bloody mary. The food, drinks, and... More

These coneys were average in taste. The service was fast and our server is friendly. There's meter parking in front and they're open 'til 1:45am!

Don't be put off from the name, this hipster hotdog hangout is trendy and mostly clean. They have a full well stocked bar, and local and artisan brews on tap along with $2 Pabst Blue Ribbon drafts. The hotdogs are high quality and many gourmet toppings are available. The hot dogs can be requested steamed, ripped (fried), and split and... More

We ate at Dirty Frank's newer location in West Columbus, and were very pleased. They serve a huge variety of interesting hot dog toppings, and have vegetarian and vegan options for hot dogs and chili. My kids loved the Octodog meal which included a hotdog cut into an octopus shape served over mac and cheese. Lara's Pittsburgh Princess dog was... More
