    Try the Jackalope, a custom-made rabbit, antelope, and pork sausage, topped with cranberry compote, cheddar, and Sriracha aioli.

    What's not to love about this quirky sausage emporium? Aside from off-the-wall gourmet hot dogs (including vegan), Frank serves incredible coffee, well-made cocktails, and outstanding fried chicken. Read more

    Nice twists on homey brunch dishes like their artisan sausages and bacon-infused whiskey drinks. You can also grab a quick biscuit sandwich and Intelligentsia coffee to-go.

    Get The Sonoran dog (you can ask for the jalapeño sauce on the side) and the Canadian Waffle Poutine with pulled pork on top!!! Also FYI the small Waffle Poutine come on a regular sized plate #winning

    Notorious P.I.G!! Taste bud overload! A little pricey though. Also got the waffle fries with Siracha aioli and the Chicago dog pork it! Damn good dogs. 4.5/5

    The waiters are fun and have great timing; not too much, not too little. All the food being served around us looked great! A true Austin experience! Same as www.getaround.com. Keep sharing, Austin

    Try the Bloody Mary with the bacon. It's addicting. Never had anything I didn't like here. They're menu changes often, so you won't get bored. I try to come when I'm in town

    Brunch at Frank should begin with a Red Headed Stranger-- a Bloody Mary made with bacon-infused Tito's Vodka and garnished with cheddar cheese, pepperoncini, and a strip of bacon.

    Best hotdogs in Austin. I had the jackalope and german curry dogs. Both were excellent and the curry dog had some nice heat to it. Also, don't miss the poutine fries.

    Awesome place to start the day off - great hot dogs, and tons of veggie options. Get a a pear mimosa or red pepper-infused Bloody Mary. Ask for Michelle - AMAZING hostess.

    Very authentic. Different sausages made from various meat types (duck, kangaroo, pork, beef)you will need two or three . Ruben fries were really good and lots of beer options.

    You may be surprised by the fine sausages created here. If you love bacon, go with the Hogzilla: a bacon, pork and onion sausage topped with pulled pork & fried onions. Frank also has veggie specials Read more

    We had a few minor things go wrong-no big deal. We didn't complain, but obviously our waitress told the manager who brought us out a plate of cookies and chocolate covered bacon-wonderful! :)

    A variety of delicious hot dogs and cold beers with friendly bartenders and a relaxed environment, it's a perfect spot for a mid-afternoon pit stop or an evening out.

    What to Order: On a Sunday, tableside siphon coffee service. Otherwise, go for the Frank Crank: housemade ganache, half-and-half, vanilla, and cold brew shaken over ice.

    Great food, only place to get vegetarian chili cheese fries, but don't take pictures in their "free" photobooth: it'll charge you $4. I don't care that much, but they should be up front about it.
  • Delight G.
    Love a good hot dog? This is the place to go. All of their Vienna beef dogs are gluten-free. They also offer gluten-free buns, fries and beer.

    Best coffee program in town! Ask the barista what to get - they're the experts. But whatever you do, don't add milk or sugar. It ruins the coffee.

    Do a veggie dog switcharoo on any of the awesome hot dogs & sausages. My faves are the Chicago style and the Slaw dog. Pair it up with a fine draft beer

    I inhaled the Creole Gator. And the Chicago dog looks legit! Sport peppers and all. Definitely going to go back when I can.

    Can a Hot Dog be "gourmet"? Yes, it can! Frank serves great dogs, accompanied by an impressive craft beer List.

    These guys support fully vegan options - their buns are vegan. Man Bites Dog (mentioned in other tips) has vegan franks and chili, but no vegan buns, which brought us here.

    Those Weiner's go down easy (but too quick, though)...and always leaves a smile on your face. Make sure you clean the corners of your mouth. 😜

    Order the Red Headed stranger Bloody Mary to drink. And the Jackalope dog to eat. Order a wheelbarrow to carry you to your hotel after.

    Queso waffle fries and Chicago style dogs. The PB and Oreo shake is a must have.

    Only got some waffle fries to go but the bartender was super cool and the fries handcut. Next time I go back I'm going there the first day for a full meal.

    Red headed stranger bloody Mary = pepper crusted bacon as a garnish with bacon infused vodka. AMAZING. Chocolate covered bacon is also amazing. For brunch, Texas Benedict.

    Grab an order of the chili cheese fries with some jalapenos. The chili is prepared perfectly with a bit of spice.
