A Columbus staple.

Cheap, delicious food that accommodates vegans and vegetarians alike. If you want to hang with Columbus locals, this is a must do. The space is small and there is almost always a wait during peak times, but they stay open late so it's a great place to stop for a bite after a show or night out... read more

I found this place near my hotel and loved it! I never would have thought to put some of those things on a hot dog, but they are tasty. The tater tots are a nice retro treat as well.

They place has 8 tables and a bar. It is small and always busy but you won't have to wait long. They turn through pretty quickly. Be sure to get the root beer when they have it on tap from a keg!

I stopped by this vintage hot dog shop on the way to Pittsburgh from Cincinnati. I really liked the personal touch they made in the place - vintage 80s musicians all over the wall. Everything was what you expect from a small hot dog shop - informal / casual comfort - but I found the hot dogs to be more... More

We live in a suburb of Columbus-- kids had a craving for Dirty Frank's but carry out was needed due to schedule. YUM! The doginator made my son's heart happy-- albeit arteries are now more clogged. Two classy ladies hit the spot-- one veggie and one regular dog. Ohioana was fresh tasting after the cheese and crushed chips. Two orders... More

Good hotdogs, Small place and crowded. We sat on the bar since there's no place to sit the bartender (the guy with mustache) was not polite at all. He got upset when We told him we wanted just water with our food. The when I pull my phone out he started to be nice..

Stopped in for dinner and wasn't disappointed. For being a small place, they got our group of 6 in quickly. I had the Chicago dog and picnic dog and loved both of them. Def recommend the tator tots as a side. Would def stop in again and try different hot dogs.
