When I used to think of a delicious weekday lunch hot dogs weren't the first food that came to mind. This may have been because I am not the biggest fan of hot dogs, but it was probably because I had never been to Franktuary before.
With a permanent location in Lawrenceville and a food truck that travels around the city, there was no excuse for me not to give it a try and, boy, am I glad I did!
As soon as you walk into Franktuary, you feel relaxed and quite hip. There is exposed brick on the back wall and a huge, vintage looking bar in the corner.
The menu has so many different ways to get your hotdog, it is unbelievable! I decided to go with the classic Pittsburgh-style that includes a huge pierogie and coleslaw on top of your frank!
Not only do they have hot dogs but they have POUTINE! Before my recent trip to Toronto, this would not have mattered to me, but now that I know how amazing it is I want to go back and try Franktuary's take on it. For those of you who don't know what poutine is (like me before my weekend trip to Canada) poutine is fries with gravy and cheese curds. Most Canadians are obsessed with it and we saw multiple restaurants that only sold different variations of poutine on our two-day trip.
My mouth is watering just thinking about what I am going to order the next time I go....a memphis frank with an order of poutine.
