We love Dirty Franks!!! There are so many choices and the atmosphere is so much fun! It gets really busy during the normal lunch time so go either before 11:30am or after 1:00pm. The prices are great too!

I'd heard about this place and finally made it there. The food was very good. I had a hot dog with tater tots and it was quite inexpensive. While not a legendary meal it was, for the money the best I've had in a while.

We were just looking for a quick bite before we got on the road. Didn't read the reviews, but based on its ranking we decided to stop. So glad we did! It's a tiny place, only 8 tables plus seating at the bar, and it was jamming at 2:00 on a Saturday afternoon. I had the Classy Lady which had... More

Yummy hotdogs with unusual ingredients available. Not your typical hotdog joint. Eclectic environment. Beige hotdogs available too. I will return.

Slice of columbus ohio at its finest. This is a must stop for someone new to town. Hot dogs were very creative and tasty. Also had pretzels, which were soft and crunchy. Large sodas were pleasing as well. Staff was friendly and attentive. It is a small space but cozy. Art on the wall was interesting too.

We stopped by on a Sunday afternoon and it was very busy but we sat at the bar. I got the West Virginia dog (slaw and chili) with fries. My wife had the picnic dog with tater tots. The tater tots are the better choice. Wide variety of toppings so you can find something to suit you.

Frank's never disappoints. Gourmet Hot Dogs and an eclectic atmosphere provide a nice change of pace in the downtown area

Dirty Frank's is a very eclectic little restaurant decorated with unique art featuring sports and rock n' roll stars as well as a plethora of ceramic dogs. They offer a variety of unique dogs and you can also construct your own. I have had the veggie dog multiple times; it is definitely a different taste (as many meat substitutes made... More
