Frank Dog ($5.50) with freshly grilled onions tasted average, nothing special. It is great it is full of healthy ingredients but the hot dog tasted just slightly above average. The dog’s casing was pretty thick.
Brat Dog ($5.50) with Chili Sauce ($2) is a family farmed pork bratwurst on an Acme bun with a messy, slightly spicy chili sauce on it. It was pretty big but uninspired. Pickles had a better chili dog on a recent visit.
Let’s be Frank took about 3 minutes to get the food ready. The hot dogs were decent but nothing to drive around for. Better bets are Top Dog or Rosamunde Sausage Grill. Many times healthy does not translate into taste.
