The Downlow on Dirty Franks
Posted by cmh gourmand on June 23, 2009
After years of being the Charlie Brown of American cuisine, Hot Dogs are Haute and getting hotter.
You should not put ketchup on a hot dog, but waiting for Dirty Franks Hot Dog Palace to open has been like watching the spout of a Heinz bottle – anticipation held back with patience.
It has been quite an odyssey, almost a year behind schedule, but you can listen to some back story HERE – Columbus Foodcast.
Ladies and Gentlemen – Dirty Franks is expected to open about one week from now.
248 South 4th Street
Downtown / Red Brick District
If you want to track the exact hour that the doors will open – use any of the multiple social media below to keep up to date on when the floodgates burst to the hot dog loving masses.
Talking about hot – Dirty Franks was famous for hot dogs before opening day.
The wait is over, it was worth it and the menu looks great. Here is a sneak preview of some of the fare at Liz Lessner’s new lair.
The dogs can also come Vegetarian or Vegan style. Really. Probably Bacon style too if you ask nice.
