Never knew there could be so many ways to serve a hot dog. Had the Chicago dog and absolutely loved it. Busy place on a Saturday night. If you don't want to wait for a table, you can go in and order to go. Very reasonable prices.

Stopped by here on a day trip to Columbus. The staff was attentive and the food was delicious. We went on a Tuesday afternoon so we were seated and waited on immediately. I'll definitely go again when I'm on the west side of Columbus.

Love the veggie hotdogs, so went to try the new location on W. Broad Street. There were only 2 servers waiting on the entire place at lunch time. They were also getting the drinks and checking people out. Not their fault it took forever - they were running. With only 45 minutes for lunch I may not be able to... More

Dirty franks is a great place to eat. If you are a visitor to Columbus or have friends coming in town it is worth a trip. There is something for everyone on the menu even little ones. It can get quite crowded with a wait for a table but the service is quick and friendly. Fresh root beer, slushies, or... More

Interesting concept with a ton of choices. If you love hot dogs then this is the place for you. I don't generally eat hot dogs as I do not eat meat but I did try their vegetarian dog, I think I had the Beano. You could tell it was a veggie dog and the toppings got better as I went... More

Never thought I could like a hot dog so much, today was the second time for me, love that the new location is near by, Westgate, we waited a little while, but the place was hopping, all in all, well worth the wait. This may be my daughter and I spot. every Saturday

I'm not from Columbus, but I heard that you can't go to Columbus without going to Dirty Franks. I went to the new location (Broad Street?) on a Friday night. It was crowded, but we were seated right away. The atmosphere is typical bar fare, but the service was fast and the food was phenomenal. I got a vegan hot... More

Not a chance until you've been to Dirty Franks Hot Dog Palace....it's no exaggeration. Order 2 or 3 or 4 with some craft beer and you can't beat this place for a seriously delicious and low budget dinner!

My husband and I were having a staycation and we were looking for some place to eat that we could be comfortable going in jeans and a t-shirt. We are not a big fan of chain restaurants and had heard of this place and figured we would give it a try. We got there and the place was packed! People... More
