We Always Love Dirty Franks. So many Different dogs to try. Love the Zippity Zam. The tater tots are a must if you like tots and don't miss out on one of the delicious slushie drinks!

The fries and onion rings were really good. The hotdogs were good and selecting the one to try was difficult. Toppings sound unusual but the Rhine Dog ended up exceeding my expectations.

I went here in February with a collage and the food and service was wonderful! The line was out the door for regular seating but you have to keep an eye at the bar seating (first come first serve). If you are not one to sit at a bar I advise you get there before the lunch rush -- otherwise... More

We love Dirty Franks!!! There are so many choices and the atmosphere is so much fun! It gets really busy during the normal lunch time so go either before 11:30am or after 1:00pm. The prices are great too!

I'd heard about this place and finally made it there. The food was very good. I had a hot dog with tater tots and it was quite inexpensive. While not a legendary meal it was, for the money the best I've had in a while.

We were just looking for a quick bite before we got on the road. Didn't read the reviews, but based on its ranking we decided to stop. So glad we did! It's a tiny place, only 8 tables plus seating at the bar, and it was jamming at 2:00 on a Saturday afternoon. I had the Classy Lady which had... More

Yummy hotdogs with unusual ingredients available. Not your typical hotdog joint. Eclectic environment. Beige hotdogs available too. I will return.

Slice of columbus ohio at its finest. This is a must stop for someone new to town. Hot dogs were very creative and tasty. Also had pretzels, which were soft and crunchy. Large sodas were pleasing as well. Staff was friendly and attentive. It is a small space but cozy. Art on the wall was interesting too.
