Frank & Steins
Anyone near downtown in the mood for a hot dog? How about a beer to wash it down with? At Frank & Steins, they have a variety of franks even veggie hot dogs (“the Greek Goddess”). As you step in, it’s got a warm appeal to it although it’s cold in there. Brrr… Also, the service has been on the “eh” side. Nothing spectacular and sometimes it’d be hard to flag down the server. With that being said, the hot dogs are tasty as long as you’re not in a rush to go anywhere. They have board games, which are always fun in my book. The beer list is also extensive, you’ll be sure to find something you like.
During this trip, I chose the “build your own frank”. Between drinking my Framboise, watching TV, playing a board game, my food finally came. It had a marbled rye hoagie, all beef hot dog, tomatoes, onions, corn salsa, pickles, cucumbers, fried onion strings, relish, fresh garlic, and grated cheddar cheese. Let me tell ya, there was a lot of flavor with this hot dog.
I also ended up ordering a Texas Frito Pie. Sometimes it’s the simple things that are the best. It really hit the spot. So if you’re not looking for great service and don’t mind getting a little messy, go to Frank & Steins.
On a side note when you tell friends to meet you here, make sure you say “frank AND steins”. One of my friends kept looking for “Frankenstein”. :p
