Review of Frankie's Hot Dogs

Frankie's Hot Dogs
Ranked #1 of 3 Quick Bites in Waterbury
Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 January 2012

This is a local institution. The foot-long dogs are good, if a little pale. You might ask for well done. Good greasy sides... This is not spa food by any means. You order at the counter and add condiments like onions melted into sauce, homemade spicy relish, chopped onions and sauerkraut. Grilled split top bun is very Connecticut. Good burgers. The onion rings seem like they come from Costco and the fries are just okay. You go for the food. Branch on Reidville Drive. Over the top decor there. Cheap and filing and a local treat.

I had a craving for a hot dog from Frankie's last night and wasn't disappointed. Although it is about a half hour drive it was worth the trip. Going to Frankie's is like being in a "time warp"...since it looks exactly the way it has since it opened back in the 1930's. We each had one of their foot-long hot dogs - one with just mustard and sauerkraut and the other with mustard and their hot relish. One of us had fries and one of us (me) was good and didn't order any but did snitch one which was delicious. Great food, great service!!
