4 of us went one sunny day to Whyte Ave and decided to grab a dog at Fat Franks. Had a variety of sausage and hot dogs. All were very delicious.

Always get the spicy italian sausage and the quality is always very good. Would recommend if you miss street meat from Toronto.

I got so lucky to be sitting at Sir Winston Churchill Square and finding a Fat Frank's cart! What a treat! The hot dog was big (and it was only $4) and he had tons of great condiments. I will seek it out next time...More

This is a good example of consistency & delivering what would be expected...at a reasonable price! Lots of selection from type of "dogs" to toppings galore! Great specials & good service. Would not be able to get through the 3 days of Edmonton Blues Festival...More

A great selection of hotdog choices. Whether plain or fancy they all hit the spot. Whyte Street adds to the ambiance and flavour. Lots of topping choices. Good value and worth a try.
