Dirty Frank's Hot Dog Palace Restaurant Review

: Dirty Frank’s has a hot dog for everyone. For the more adventurous there’s the Hot Bollywood, served with spicy mango chutney, or the Seoul Dog topped with kimchi, mayo and a sriracha drizzle. For the traditionalist, there’s the Old Faithful that comes with relish, onions and mustard. Meanwhile, folks full of Ohio pride can opt for the Ohioana, anointed with spicy corn relish. All dogs are served on a steamed poppy seed bun; dog options run the gamut from a bacon-wrapped, all-beef dog to a veggie version. Vegan and gluten-free choices also abound. Be prepared to wait a bit for a table; at lunch and during happy hour, there can be a line out the door. Save room for any of the rotating beers on tap as well as a dessert. We are always ready to sample some local Jeni’s ice cream, which is served here, or Frank’s funnel fries.
