Dirty Frank's hot dog palace in Columbus is one of those eateries, that as soon as you walk into and see all the tables full, as well as absorb the ambiance, you know you will leave happy. We sat at the bar on our visit and were greeted almost immediately with the drink and beer menus. There are over 20... More

Good selection of cold beer on tap. The selection of hit dogs and option is amazing. Having been here several times, I have tried quite a few different dogs. My favorite is the Columbus Crew Dogs. If you like dogs and beer, this is the place.

Read about this place for a while and finally went there. While the atmosphere was great, hot dogs were not as good as I assumed they would be. BUT I will give them a second chance some day soo.

I couldn't believe how many different hot dogs were on this menu! The favorites/best sellers are marked with a star on the menu. The buns are deep so tons of toppings can be stacked on them if you want to create your own. There are gluten free options at this restaurant - even gf desserts!

Great food. Tasty and inexpensive. I ordered a Sloppy Pappy and added a jumbo dog to it. My wife got the Chicago dog. We shared tater tots at our waitress's suggestion since this was our first visit. The soft drinks come in HUGE glasses and have free refills if you can drink that much. It's a late night place open... More

Whenever I come to town for Ohayocon or just to visit friends, I find myself here after going to 16+ Bit Bar & Arcade. Nice Dogs, decent prices, and worth the wait as I'm sure patrons from 16+ Bit come here after a few rounds.

It's quite yummy. Good and cheap! I forgot to get the grilled hot dog, so the regular hot dog is more of a lukewarm dog. The bun is very soft! Any dog you get comes with plenty of toppings. Great service and decor!!

Tried going here for a late lunch and even at 3pm we couldn't get a table. The staff seemed aloof ("Like obviously there are 4 parties ahead of you, it's always this busy")

Small place but the food is great and so was the staff. Had the Chicago and Cowgirl dogs with a couple beers, everything was excellent. Soooo affordable too!!
