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!!

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
