Fodor's Expert Review Frank

$ Central Austin, Downtown, and Capitol Area Hot Dog

Discerning hipsters, corporate lunch crowds, and late-night barflies frequent this Warehouse District favorite specializing in artisanal hot dogs. The menu is lengthy and varied, with signatures like the Jackalope—a smoked antelope, rabbit and pork sausage, topped with cranberry compote, cheddar cheese and Sriracha aioli. Customize with special requests like vegan dog substitutes or a corn-battered “Frank flapjacket” instead of a bun. Must-have sides like waffle fries are also customizable, with chili cheese or poutine toppings, and a wide range of dipping sauces, from Cajun remoulade to bacon buttermilk. An extensive beer and cocktail list, plus an impressive daily breakfast and a Sunday “brunch for drunks,” keep their diverse clientele satisfied from early-morning to late-night.
