Slaw & French Fry Dog (Dirty Franks style)

Every year when I go to Origins, I HAVE to go to Dirty Franks Hot Dog Palace. It’s a MUST visit restaurant if you like hot dogs. DELISH! My favorite dog there has creamy coleslaw and french fries on it…yes it SOUNDS weird, but it is SO GOOD. A lot of their hot dog concoctions sound weird, but they are OH SO GOOD.

Another great thing about this place? It’s open until 2 a.m. So you can play games until nice and late, and then go eat tasty hot dogs!

When I’m not at Origins the rest of the year…I WANT this hot dog. Making it at home isn’t QUITE the same, but it’s still good!

Seriously, give it a whirl. Or take a look at their menu and try your hand at some of the other combinations they have. And next time you’re in Columbus you should DEFINITELY stop into Dirty Franks! -Jondi
