More hype than it's worth. Expensive place for hotdogs. There is huge variety of toppings but I wasn't impressed with the whole experience.

Arrived today for the 1st time ever. A little crowded due to the lunch time rush. That did not stop the staff from coming over and greeting. I ordered the double cheese burger with no onions just cheese and bacon. They brought it to the table and it wasn't plain. I would have gladly picked the stuff off I didn't... More

First of all, let me say I chose to eat here BEFORE I knew it had been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. I just ate lunch here because I like hot dogs, so much so that when I'm really in the mood for one I believe they are the world's perfect food. This place does them right. We all... More

Burger overcooked and smothered in mustard, hair in the hot dog chili, pork chop sandwich too sweet. Will not be going back, ever!

Fun decor but the food is nothing special. Definitely over-hyped. Overcooked dogs (as in shriveled up and tough). Lots of fun sounding toppings but so much salt on everything it was nearly inedible. Literally threw part of it away. Likely won't go back.

I ate here because the place was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.... I think I will stop watching the show. Yes, Franks has some pretty outlandish toppings, but that's where the amazement ends. At first, I thought that I was being harsh on the place. So, when my mom came up to visit I also had her give it... More

Just because a celebrity chef drops by, doesn't mean a place is spectacular. After waiting in line for half an hour, we got to the order counter. We tried a couple different dogs, even a corn dog, and my wife also had fish tacos. Nothing of note with any of the items, in fact this was the first time I... More

I am from NYC and know my dogs. Had Chicago dog, Hot pepper dog, and honey sweet potato fries. Great soft bread which many restaurants seen to do wrong. All excellent. Service was great and restaurant was clean.

Stopped in on a whim trying to find something different for dinner. I stumbled upon this hot dog joint, saw it had been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and decided that I absolutely had to give it a try. I was not disappointed. The gigantic hot dog menu is an adventure in dining in and of itself, but wait... More

Obviously this is not fine dining but it provides a great stop when travelling. Lots of options and service is fast even though it was very busy.Brewed sweet tea which is a novelty for us. Staff were accommodating and cheerful. Hot dog itself tasted like it was quality(is that even possible?). Toppings were fresh and flavourful.
