Reviews for Frank


Like their motto says, Frank = Hot dogs and cold beer. They also have a plethora of bacon and fried everything options on the menu. In addition, they have one of the coolest changing art walls in Austin - that features new talent each month.


Frank just does so many things right, it almost isn't fair to other restaurants. There's the killer location (4th and Colorado), their sharp, hip branding, their glorious craft cocktail menu (bacon-infused vodka Bloody Mary's, anyone?), and finally, their food. Oh, their food! Frank has an in-house sausage program, and their specialties include a pleasantly sour pork and beer brat, as well as an antelope, rabbit and pork sausage (that isn't overpoweringly gamey). Frank wasn't the first beloved hot dog institution in Austin, but since opening four years ago, it has upped the game of every self-respecting hot dog purveyor in town.

over a year ago

Faux old-timey upscale hot doggery shows deep dedication. – In spite of obvious efforts to present an old-timey front, there is a distinctly nouvelle feel here. White-washed brick walls, a lovely old butcher counter and faux-vintage signs lend a clean, austere feeling to the dining room, but a glance out of the large picture windows reveal sky-high brand-new condos, symbols of the fast-developing upscale element in Austin. Old-school care shows in the food; much love is poured into the daily specials, which can include sausage made of alligator, antelope and rabbit. Kosher and veggie dogs, waffle fries smothered in cheese, chili or gravy, and beans means all but those on the most restricted of diets can eat here.
