      Love this place!
      Dirty Frank's is located downtown and further from the Short North, my usual destination, but it's worth a visit. The drinks were pretty cheap, the crowd was mixed (gay couples, straight families, young and old, etc.) but the staff was great. I wish I remembered the name of the hot dog I ordered... I think it was "the Rhine" or something like that... whatever it was, it was spicy and delicious.. mmmm.

      Who could have guessed hot dogs would be so hip?
      There are so many options for your boring ole hot dog! The dogs are great and the toppings are out of this world. You definitely need to try this place but be prepared to wait because it can be busy.

      Kitschy beer and brats on a budget diner
      From the creator of Betty's Fine Food and Spirits and Surly Girl Saloon comes the latest venture: Dirty Franks Hot Dog Palace. Located downtown in the Red Brick District this hot dog diner is fantastic. There's more than 10 different unique variations of hot dogs including hot dogs topped with everything from olives and cream cheese to sriracha cole slaw and corn relish. There's also some more traditional fare like tater tots, chili dogs and mac n' cheese. Large beer selection and alcoholic slushies. Very kitschy, cute decor. Family friendly. Metered parking in front of diner.
