    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!

    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!

    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!

    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

    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".

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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!
  • Stephanie L.
    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.

    Go to Dirty Franks and try the Lime Habenero Slushie. It has Tequila in it too. The onion rings and mac and cheese are sinful. The hot dogs are awesome too. Read more

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

    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

    Great Chicago Dog (try it ripped), then expand your tastes from there. Try the fried leeks for a side.

    Two dogs and an order of tater tots is the perfect balance for a meal!

    Great selection, awesome tater tots. Only a small place, might have to wait to be seated, but totally worth it.

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

    Classy Lady (cheese sauce + crushed potato chips) & Nicola (tzatziki + greek relish) are the BEST! Also, funnel cake fries & vodka slushies = win

    You have to try a Cowgirl Carmen, and then be sure to do a make your own, and add siracha cream cheese....

    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

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

    One of the coolest places in town. Get the fried leeks for a change from onion rings.

    The only downside tho is how busy it is. If you don't have a lot time on your hands and looking for something fast. come back when you have more time to wait

    Don't worry if you don't like hotdogs. The bratwurst with sriracha mustard is amazing!
  • Berlin & Co. J.
    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

    Shark Dog and tater tots were wonderful! They've got cans of Black Label and RC Cola instead of Coke. Nice!

    It's been SO long since I've been here, glad they finally got wifi. Wish they found their customers worthy of a wifi password. Guess I'll go talk to the homeless guy out front!
