I will give the benefit of the doubt since I only ordered a Chicago Dog and fries. While waiting for my order, I saw a huge pretzel and some very appetizing looking sausages. The hot dog was good, the fries were just OK but nothing...More

I was craving a pretzel and I got one! Awesomeness! Bar services was great and cocktails were good. But seriously, the pretzel was great and holds up well the next day too as it's huge and difficult to finish in one sitting.

Nice quaint spot, helpful staff. But let's be honest it's a hotdog place end of. Excellent selection of beers and very fast service. Maybe a little over priced for what it is. Worth a go though if your in a rush.

A quaint little restaurant, with decent food, but overrated. Food was over priced for what it was, the hot dog was decent tasting, but not worth $10. A few chips on a hot dog. The new bartender was very nice, but the person who seemed...More

Had not been to Frank for a few years. Stopped in while waiting for an appointment nearby. Had a local beer and a spicy dog. Very quick service as it is set up for downtown crowd.

Frank is the ideal place for a cheap hot dog and a can of Schlitz beer or an artisanal sausage and a glass of wine. 'High-end lowbrow'The menu includes a loaded Chicago dog for $3.95 (complete with bright green relish and sport peppers), a Jackalope dog for $7 (antelope and rabbit sausage on a Phoenicia baguette with huckleberry compote) and waffle fries starting at $2.50. Daily specials feature gourmet sausages made in-house or on special order by locals: Hudson's Meat Market.
