Quick and fast hot dog place. Lots of different hot dogs to choose from (i.e. Texas, Chicago, Boston, etc.). Decent food, nothing to write home about but a good midday lunch after the beach at great prices.

My family and I tried Capt'n Frank's for dinner. I was expecting a good dinner but the food definitely exceeded my expectations. I got shrimp, a snap dog with cheese and bacon, and chili cheese fries. Everything was ready quick which is a real plus...More
