Really good hot dogs

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

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
