Dirty Frank’s Hot Dog Palace

40.6%  of 12,198 votes

Despite losing their second location last year, the flagship location of this hot dog empire is here to stay. With a menu full of zany-named options and a restaurant chock full of colorful kitsch, it’s no surprise that the voters have once again chosen Dirty Frank’s as their top dog. Plus, it’s safe to say that this is the only spot in the city that you can get 32-ounce of RC Cola with a chili dog topped with potato chips.
