This would be a place that you would travel out of your way to. If you are taking a flight out of Columbus, make time to stop into Dirty Frank's. The menu is full of very creative ways to eat a hot dog. I went...More

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...More

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...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.
