Happy National Hot Dog Day! Top 3 dog joints in Columbus

614now Staff

The “National Day” people—whoever they are—decided today is National Hot Dog Day and you best believe we’re celebrating.

We’ve left it up to the fine citizens of Columbus to determine which three restaurants were deserving of the ColumBest awards for best hot dogs and brats in the city.

It was a challenging task but you came through with flying colors.

#3 The Thurman Cafe

5.4% of 12,198 votes

183 Thurman Ave, Columbus

#2 Schmidt’s Sausage Haus und Restaurant

25.5% of 12,198 votes

240 E Kossuth St, Columbus

#1 Dirty Frank’s Hot Dog Palace

40.6%  of 12,198 votes

248 S Fourth St., Columbus

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.
