“Yo dog, I heard you like hot dogs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

You could probably get a burger with a hot dog on it at Franks... they have pretty much everything. I ordered the chili dog and got chili with a side of hot dog. Their Ortega burger is great. Serving size: American. If you're looking to get your grub on then come here. Prices are cheap!

“More than just dogs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Franks may be best known for its hot dogs, but everything my family has tried on the menu has been good, In particular, the jumbo burger is fantastic! The staff is helpful and the service is good.

“A Must Do for Dogs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

I have been going to Franks since 1980. Now I make a point of stopping for a dog or 2 whenever I am in SLO. It isn't just out of habbit but can become habit Forming! Don't feel like a dog try the Monster Burger, you won't go huingry.

“Lots of options.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

I came here once for dinner. The menu was too big, but everything was fine. Lots of fried things, all very fresh. Not much to complain about, but not much to go back for.
