    Incredible spot. Yes it's small, yes it's crowded, but its all easily ignored as the concept is brilliant and the food perfectly imagined & executed. Good luck not over-ordering b/c it's all so good!

    We were driving home from NC to MI, and were starving. I looked up a place to eat and DF's sounded delicious. We found it easily and had a short wait, but OH SO worth it. Loved everything.

    Being vegan can be difficult at times when eating out. Places like Dirty Franks give us vegans a small glimpse of our past lives with out feeling guilty! The fries and vegan dogs were amazing!

    Local treasure. Honestly, if you like hot dogs, then you will find most everything here worth checking out. Live on the edge and try a combination outside your normal dining preferences!

    Classy lady (cheese & potato chips) and true love always (cream cheese & green olives - a must try) are my faves! The fresh hand cut fries are delish - just like fries at the fair. Great Cbus hangout!

    All dogs are $3-$4 dollars and the soft, salty, pretzels with cheese sauce are amazing! Try the "Cowgirl Carmen": meat coney sauce, cheddar, and fritos. A plain old wiener is called "The Glenn Beck".

    YUM. Good. Fast. Great for late night munchies. If you are looking for some good, quick food look no farther. Not from Columbus, but if I go back I will be visiting again!

    The classy lady and the picnic table are my favorite hot dogs here. And the tater tots are the best. Everyone In Columbus must come here at least once!

    This hot dog place has the best vegetarian options in columbus. And the beef dogs are also amazing. It gets crowded but the wait staff is awesome. Best restaurant ever!

    Great rotating craft beers on tap. Pretzel appetizer with Sriracha cheese is my favorite. But you come here for the hot dogs!

    Everything I have had is good. But it's better if you eat at the restaurant. I have gotten dogs to go and they end up being smashed and thrown in the bag. It's not the same and not worth it.

    Awesome place! Cheap hot dogs, and are very delicious. I got the 'Classy Lady' which was really good. I also got the 'Zippity Zam' and the sriracha made it really spicy. Their onion rings are great to

    The best hot place in the Cbus town. Try the Bollywood mango hot dog and their draft selection. Ohioana is my favorite...

    Great stuff, Hot Bollywood is a great one. Tots portions are wildly inconsistent. more than enough to share with 2-3 other times just enough for 1

    Go with the romaine lettuce wrap instead of the bun. It gives some texture to that delicious dog.

    They're great about allowing you to tweak the menu a bit. I added jalepenos, sriracha mustard, and an extra "frank" to my Dog-inator and called it the Double Dog Dare Ya Dog-inator.

    Hot Dogs were okay, not impressed. The menu is overwhelming. You will need to pay for parking on the street. The seating is very tight.  Return: No  Decor: 5 Staff/Service: 6 Food/Quality: 5

    Fried leeks were highly enjoyable, much like the onion rings in terms of presentation, crispiness, and even flavor, but considerably lighter on the stomach. Read more
