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!!

Visited Dirty Frank's about 7pm on Sunday evening. It was relatively busy, but we didn't have to wait for a table. They have some interesting hotdog combinations -- lots of toppings. We had 6 different dogs between 4 of us. All were really good. The food comes up pretty quick, considering the amount of people in there. It's a fun... More

We had to wait, but not a biggie because the menu selection and our hot dogs were delicious. So good, in fact, that we went to the other location the next day to have more.

The food was great and the staff very welcoming. We went just after 11am before they got to busy. We had a corn dog, tots, a Chicago dog and a chili dog. All of it very good and the atmosphere was great as well. We will be back soon!

Arrived in Columbus late at night - 1 AM, needed some food and this place was right around the corner. Hot Dogs and Beer, what else would I need. Not a very big place, 10-12 tables and a bar. Has a great vibe with the decor, music and sports memorabilia. Great Hot Dog Menu with lots and lots of choices.... More

My husband and I visit Dirty Frank's at least once a month. The eats are cheap and I can get a good veggie dog there. We go solo sometimes and other times we meet up with friends there. There is usually a wait because the building is small. But you can always get in faster if you don't mind sitting... More

Dirty franks is your basic bar/hot dog joint. But there is just something about this place. Something that once you go, will keep bringing you back. The dogs always served hot and delicious.

Throw you calorie count away and eat here! The vegan bratwurst is definitely the best vegan meat I've had to date. Get their tatertochos!

OK, so don't tell your cardiologist . . . So decadent. The flavors. Beef hot dogs, bacon, cheddar, jalapenos, and more. Lots of food for a little cash. Good beer selection, too. The decor is '70's minimalist, with a hand painted rock 'n roll / baseball motif. Good fun. Try it!
