Showed up for lunch as soon as they opened on a Saturday and the place filled up in minutes. Don't expect gourmet dogs, but do expect unusual and creative toppings that you wouldn't normally find. Great for a fun, cheap lunch.

Place is kinda small. The food was good but not great. Kids enjoyed their octodogs which was a hot dog on Mac and cheese. I went with a popular dog but I think I might just stick with a more traditional dog next time.

The snap of the all beef hot dogs is a treat, regardless of what you have on top. From the basic mustard or onion to the weird or eclectic choices. You'll never have a bad dog at Dirty Franks!

Hot dogs were not good at all, and the toppings seemed like they had been sitting in the back for a few days too long.

Neat little hot dog joint in downtown Columbus. Not very big so expect to wait when it's busy, but the dogs and tots are worth it.

We have wanted to try these dogs for a while. We stopped by the west side location a couple times but both times it was closed. Finally, we decided to fight downtown traffic and eat at the downtown location. The server was preoccupied due to...More
