Dirty Franks is a very casual little bar/restaurant that offers some interesting eats. They offer a wide variety of hot dogs with specialized toppings...and they have vegetarian versions of almost every menu option! The root beer float was also delicious!

Great food here (11 Am, so not quite ready for the microbrews), had the Ohioan with bacon cheese fries (less than $8), do yourself a favor though and order a Jumbo for $.50 more. Will be back again.

There are some things that are hard to make vegan. A good hot dog or brat seems to be one of the more elusive of things that are either unpalatable (more common than not) or incredible (Dirty Frank's bratwurst!) My wife and I enjoyed the...More
