So I have to write 100 character minimum. I could go into a long winded explanation of having this and that. I've had half the hotdogs and it's Just plain old good. Enough said.....

Love the dogs. Very creative menu. Tried three dogs so far, BLT, Doginator and the Chicago. Definitely make this place a regular stop. Very noisy however, because it is small but the service is good and the place is clean.

It's a cute, unique place with an eclectic vibe. The prices are super reasonable and their different combinations all sound awesome. We went around lunch time on a Saturday and it was pretty packed.

Great little place to eat if you have to know where it is. You never realize how many ways a hot dog can be prepared. One must do is you can order it steamed, burnt, or chared. Burnt is deep fried, suprised not greasy, crisp and delicious. Chared is split and grilled. Equally good.

Had a cheese-stuffed bacon-wrapped dog with Chili-Cheese-tater tots. Was very good and pretty cheap. Great selection of beer. I'd go again.

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!

If you love green olives the way I do get the True Love Always...it is amazing! The Classy Lady was also rockin'! The fries leeks are a great side. Word to the wise...get 2 dogs and split a side with your dining partner it's the perfect amount!

Dirty Franks is a fun lunch place (although they are open for dinner, it just feels like lunch to me). Lots of varieties of hotdogs including all beef and a tofu dog. I like the brats. Then you can top them off which a dizzying array of topping choices (I went with a more classic chili and slaw). The tater... More
